On Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 7:30 p.m., the community is invited to St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church of Boca Raton for a conversation with local Muslim-American politician and leader Khurrum Wahid. Mr. Wahid will discuss being Muslim in America. The event will also feature a panel discussion and Q&A with Rabbi David Steinhardt of B’nai Torah Congregation and Rev. Andrew Sherman of St. Gregory’s, who in addition to leading their congregations also serve as the co-founders of the Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association.

“In a time of intense divisiveness in our nation, the need for deeper understanding between people of faith is essential, and a path towards healing these divisions,” says Andrew Sherman. “The Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association invites the community to a conversation about being a Muslim in America today that will open us to important dialogue on these very issues.”
