Learn about Faith Traditions


Learn About Islam
The literal meaning of Islam is peace; surrender of one’s will i.e. losing oneself for the sake of God and surrendering one’s own pleasure for the pleasure of God. The message of Islam was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings on him) 1, 400 years ago. It was revealed through the archangel Gabriel (on whom be peace) and was thus preserved in the Holy Quran.


Learn About Judaism
Beginning with Abraham, God has always taken special care of the Hebrews (who would later become the Jews). After rescuing them from slavery in Egypt, God revealed the Ten Commandments and the Torah ("the Law") to Moses.  To recognize the role of God and the Jewish community in each person's life, numerous life cycle events are observed with traditional rituals and Jewish identity is rooted in belonging to an ancient people and upholding its traditions.
