Aurora rabbi joins other faith leaders in call for peace and progress
In advance of Rosh Hashanah, the leader of Aurora's only Jewish synagogue joined with other faith leaders to unite for peace and progress in the state's second-largest city.
"Bless us all together with peace and well-being," said Rabbi Edward Friedman of Temple B'Nai Israel as he led an InterFaith Unity Prayer joined by leaders of other faiths.
More than 50 Aurora religious leaders convened on World Peace Day to focus on peace and faith.
Leaders of Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and other faiths convened at the Aurora Interfaith Breakfast to discuss ways to strengthen the city's interfaith presence.
The group held an open, honest dialogue about faith, peace and ways to help Aurora progress.
The city officially launched the new Aurora Interfaith Alliance, an advisory body comprised of leaders from different faiths.
