Interfaith symposium tackles the issue of peace in this world

In Albany, New York, an interfaith gathering that includes Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians, Hindus and Jews took place to discuss peace. The event was coordinated by Muslims for Peace, a pro-American advocacy group that condemns terrorism.

The event took place at the Hindu Temple Society of the Capital District on Albany Shaker Road. Rabbi Yaakov Kellman observed that it would be through relationships, instead of politics, that peace becomes more possible.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
