A common prophet brings 3 religions together

Feb. 11 interfaith dinner commemorates “Abrahamic Traditions”

The Bosphorous Dialogue Association, a student organization currently registered with the University of Minnesota, and the Niagara Foundation of Minnesota, a Minnesota state/Twin Cities-based interfaith dialogue group — invite interested members of the public to be their guests at the 2nd Annual Dinner of Abrahamic Traditions at 6:30 pm on the 11th of February, 2010.  This is a unique opportunity for members of the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish faiths to celebrate their shared roots and traditions derived from their common ancestor, the Prophet Abraham (Peace Be Upon Him).

Our guests are going to be composed of friends from diverse backgrounds such as leaders of churches, mosques, and synagogues as well as community and businesses.

We sincerely hope that you will be our honored guests and join us.

Kindest regards,

Murat Ergen                                                 Askar Yussupov
