United Together - Hosting the People of Peterborough - Islamic Institute of Toronto - Saturday November 21 2015

On Saturday evening, The Islamic Institute of Toronto hosted The People of Peterborough for a night of Support, Discussion and Community Building.

The multi-faith event was a show of Canadian solidarity against the Hate Crime of Arson at Kawartha Muslim Religious Association‘s Masjid Al-Salaam in Peterborough.

A representative cross-section of the wider Canadian community turned out as you may see from their images and words live-tweeted during the event…

Among those present were Jennifer Reid representing the Jewish Community Centre of Peterborough / Beth Israel Synagogue and the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough.

Afterwards, she facebooked,

“We attended the event last night… It was a great evening of community-building, friendship and dialogue. Thank-you so much IIT!”

“Thanks to all who attended this program in support of the Muslim community in Peterborough. Shaikh Shazim Khan summed up the feeling perfectly when he said that as human beings we are called upon to promote good and kindness and to reject hate.

He thanked the communities of Peterborough and Toronto for their overwhelming acts of kindness and support.”
