Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church; 1300 N Greasewood Rd

On Sunday, December 13, 2015, at 4 pm, Imam Watheq Al-Obaidi will be sitting with Rabbi Thomas Louchheim to discuss what their respective faith traditions really teach about peace, compassion and respect for our fellow human beings and for all of Creation.

Dr. Watheq Al-Obaidi is the Imam of the Muslim Community Center of Tucson and a well-known scholar of Islamic jurisprudence. He was born in Baghdad, Iraq and spent more than 25 years at Masjid Abu Hanifa, the largest mosque in Iraq.

Thomas Louchheim is the Rabbi of Congregation Or Chadash of Tucson and is well-known for his interfaith work in the community. He has been the rabbi of this Reform Jewish congregation for the past 20 years.

The program is presented by PeaceWalk Tucson, an affiliated program of the Culture of Peace Alliance (COPA). The program includes Jewish and Muslim prayers at sunset and an opportunity for small group discussions focused on the comments from Rabbi Tom and Imam Watheq and actions we each can take to build understanding, respect, and peace in our community.
