Interfaith Human Rights Celebration for World Peace

Sunday, May 21, 2017  (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.)

Shaare Zedek Congregation, 5305 Rosedale Avenue, Montreal, QC. H4V 2H7


We, at Canadians for Coexistence, invite you to join us in this Interfaith Human Rights Celebration for World Peace, uniting all people of all faiths.

It is our belief that coexistence among peoples can only be achieved by ridding the world of terror organizations and the regimes that support them as they are seeking the destruction of the civilized world. Both spiritual and human rights leaders will be speaking out against violence, as well as for freedom of religious expression, love, harmony, and generosity of spirit. 

Our Focus

Although religious differences have caused wars and strife throughout the millennia, religion can now become a significant part of the solution if we all declare that no matter which faith we follow, we recognize that we are all entitled to live in a peaceful, non-violent world. 

As religion has divided us, so it can now unite us. 

Canadians for Coexistence is proud to sponsor this event along with Rabbi Alan W. Bright who has generously provided his beautiful synagogue for this occasion.
