This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

The Abraham Conference plays an important role in bringing Jews, Christians and Muslims together to discuss contemporary issues of concern for the members of the three religions and for the wider society.     

The theme of the 2022 Abraham Conference is Religion for the 21st Century: Recovering faith in Faith. 

Historically, the Abrahamic religions shaped lives and civilisations. In the last century, they are becoming increasingly marginalised, seen as a matter of private devotion and personal morality at best, or divisive and violent at worst. But religions remain a powerful social force. With the issues that we face in our globalised, pluralist world, how can we recover faith in Faith?

Exploring this question with us, Geraldine Doogue, renowned journalist and radio and television presenter, will engage in conversation with our moderator, John Cleary, veteran ABC broadcaster. Joining them on stage will be three panellists from the Abrahamic faiths: Rabbi Moshe Givental, North Shore Temple Emanuel; Rev Dr Rob McFarlane, Presbytery Relations Minister, Uniting Church in Australia; and Associate Professor Salim Farrar, Sydney University Law School.

We will also invite you, our audience, to join in the conversation by participating in a lively Q&A with speakers, panellists and each other. 

Conference partners – Affinity Intercultural Foundation, Australian Egyptian Forum Council, Australasian Muslim Times (AMUST), Columban Centre for Christian-Muslim Relations, NSW Council of Christians and Jews, Diocese of Parramatta, Ecumenical Council of NSW, Indian Crescent Society of Australia (ICSOA), NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, and the Uniting Church in Australia, Synod of NSW & ACT – look forward to your participation in a stimulating and thought-provoking afternoon of interfaith dialogue and friendship. 

Halal and kosher vegetarian refreshments will be available.

Please share this event with your family, friends and colleagues and invite them to be part of this important interfaith conversation.
