WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — People from Greater Lafayette of all different religions, races and backgrounds joined together for an interfaith discussion Sunday.
The discussion was hosted by Temple Israel, the Reform Jewish Synagogue in West Lafayette.
Interfaith leaders of Greater Lafayette hope this will become a quarterly event. They want to switch houses of worship and panelists each time.
Susan Curtis, a history professor from Purdue University, was on the panel. She said the hope is to create a better understanding in our diverse community.
"Its a timely issue, it's timely for those of us who live in the United States for people who live in the United States but maybe come from a different society and for just thinking about the state of world community in the 21st century," said Curtis.
The discussion carried over into another room in the Temple, where people had the chance to chat one-on-one.
