JCMA Friendship Walk 2016: Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia
The Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia invites you to come along on Sunday 6 November and spend an afternoon walking together in friendship and goodwill between a church, synagogue and a mosque. Starting at St Peters Eastern Hill Anglican Church we will walk across the road to the East Melbourne Hebrew Congregation Synagogue and then onto to the Albanian Mosque in Carlton North. We will start with a prayer of peace and reflections and then learn about some of the history and traditions of each of the places we visit.
