Bon Air Interfaith Trialogue

Each Spring Or Ami participates in the Bon Air & Southside Interfaith Trialogue event, which is co-hosted by the Islamic Center of Virginia and numerous churches in the Bon Air/Southside area of Richmond. Over a hundred people (mostly adults, but also some teens and younger children) come together to share food and learn about other people and religious traditions in our community.

This three-part series generally takes place in April or May and focuses on a different topic each year. Past topics have included: religious extremism, how to love your neighbor, and finding hope in challenging times. We invite you to attend the Trialogue this spring.

 

Dates for Spring 2022 will be posted as soon as they are finalized.

 

Trialogue Dates for 2020*

*Due to COVID-19, we will be rescheduling our interfaith dialogue events to a time when it is deemed safe to gather and share food together again. In the meantime, we will be working on community service projects with our interfaith friends that can be done while safely socially distancing.
