Distinguished Merit Award Honoree

Bon Air Interfaith Trialogue

Over fifteen years ago, leaders from Congregation Or Ami, the Islamic Center of Virginia, and Bon Air Presbyterian Church began meeting together. Out of those meetings, the Bon Air Trialogue was founded.  Since that time, the partnership has grown to include additional actively participating faith communities.  Currently, faith leaders of twelve different congregations regularly meet over a meal to strengthen interfaith relationships, plan the annual trialogue series, and explore opportunities for additional interfaith engagement. In addition, the group arranged community service projects and more recently worked with Crestwood Elementary School on service projects and PTA support. Throughout the years, the interfaith trialogue topics and format have changed to meet the needs and desires of the participating communities as well as current community and national issues.
