The Arab Community Centre of Toronto (ACCT) in partnership with Bloordale United Church invites you to join in the “People of the Book Sessions”.
The event supports building an integrated, socially cohesive society by building bridges to promote interfaith understanding between the three Abrahamic religions.
The goal of interfaith dialogue is to determine how we can collaborate as a diverse community to face racism, and provide the insights and sensitivity necessary to effectively reach across divides and live in harmony.
