Dialogue and Unity Dinner

E-mail Print PDF

IDC organized a Dialogue and Unity Dinner with the celebration of the breaking of the Ramadan Fast on Sunday, October 7, 2007 at Hyatt Regency New Brunswick Hotel. As New Jersey is one of the most diverse states of the nation, this dinner, we believe, was a good opportunity to give message of dialogue, unity, harmony, solidarity and peace in NJ. That’s why, many political and non-political leaders and organizations served on the host committee of the dinner.

Those who honored us with their presence were from all walks of life. Assembly and senate members, mayors, state officials, religious and community leaders, academics, etc. attended the dinner to show their support to dialogue and unity in New Jersey.

Speakers
Christopher J. Christie
United States Attorney

Abdullah T. Antepli
Ass. Director of Islamic Chaplaincy Program & Interfaith Relations,
Hartford Seminary, CT

Dr. Maxine C. Beach
Dean of the Theological School and
Advisory Board Member, Interfaith Dialog Center
