The Faith Trio is an alliance of Muslims, Christians and Jews of three congregations: the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California, Montclair Presbyterian Church, and Kehilla Community Synagogue. The Faith Trio formed as a result of the attacks of September 11, 2001. One Sunday, weeks after the attacks, three Muslim women (a mother and her two grown daughters) visited Montclair Presbyterian Church. After the service one Christian woman asked if she and others could visit an event at the Islamic Cultural Center. That year, Muslim-Christian friendships developed as members of both congregations joined in each others’ events, leading to annual Harvest Dinners. In 2005, Kehilla joined the alliance, bringing together the three “Abrahamic Faiths” and calling themselves the Faith Trio.
The Faith Trio has organized interfaith art exhibitions, poetry readings, text study sessions and participants have volunteered together at a food bank. These activities are organized through monthly meetings of representatives from each congregation, the Faith Trio committee. Every year we hold an annual Harvest Dinner open to all.
