Interfaith ‘Descendants of Abraham in America’ panel discussion planned at United Hebrew

On Sunday, Sept. 18, members of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths will gather at United Hebrew Congregation for “Descendants of Abraham in America: Exploring what it means to be an American and Jewish, Muslim, or Christian.” 

The afternoon of fellowship, prayer, food and discussion will explore what it means to be an American of faith.  The event, which will include a panel discussion with members of all three faiths, takes place from 3 to 5 p.m., at United Hebrew Congregation, 13788 Conway Road. 

There is no cost to attend the event.  RSVPs are encouraged (but not required) online at 

A group of members from The Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis, Manchester United Methodist Church, and United Hebrew Congregation have been meeting since last spring to explore what it means to find “common ground” in preparation for the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  

Out of the group’s meetings, the “Descendants of Abraham in America” program emerged. 

The group plans to hold future programs to advance  interfaith dialogue and understanding “in order to find common ground as Americans of faith.”
