Three religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—are considered “Abrahamic,” because they all consider themselves to be derived from the figure of Abraham, described in both the Bible and the Qur’an as the founder of monotheism. The three faiths share much in common, including belief in One God, similar ethical teachings, and origin in the Middle East. Nonetheless, their histories have been marked at least as much by conflict as by peaceful co-existence. In the panel, adherents of these three faiths discuss their similarities and differences and show how these religions are now working towards a common vision of peace and cooperation.

This panel will occur as part of a Continuing Education Day for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento titled, “UNUM SINT” – Unity and Justice in Tumultuous Times. There will be various events from 8:00am-8:00pm with an ING interfaith panel from 1:00pm-2:30pm. There will be ample time for Q & A and discussion with the panelists: Ameena Jandali (Facilitator and Muslim speaker), Henry Millstein (Christian), and Karen Stiller (Jew).
