In a world torn apart by religious misunderstanding, the goal of the Interfaith Forums is to provide an experience where people can hear different religions' perspectives in an environment of mutual respect. It is a time and place to hear and be heard. For 25 years, the forums have helped forge strong relationships between members of Southern Nevada's diverse religious communities.
The forums are followed by a time for socializing and refreshments provided by the host congregation.
