"You know the feelings of the stranger, having yourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt." (Exodus 23:9)

The interfaith community will gather and join hands around the Muslim Community Center of the East Bay in solidarity with Muslim Americans, immigrants, and refugees. The Interfaith Peace Ring is sponsored by the Livermore-Pleasanton Interfaith Clergy Association, which fosters relationship and dialogue among people of all religious traditions. 

The public is invited to meet outside the mosque from 12:30-1:30 p.m. The group will create a ring of solidarity as worshipers leave their early Friday prayer time (ending at 12:50), and hear speakers of different faiths, concluding as worshipers arrive for their later Friday prayer time at 1:30. Speakers include Rev. Lucas Hergert, Rev. Heather Leslie Hammer, Hina Khan-Mukhtar and Rabbi Laurence Elis Milder. .

The Muslim Community Center is located at 5724 W. Las Positas Blvd., Suite 300, in Pleasanton, just east of Hacienda Drive. Suite 300 is around the back at the South East door of the building. Parking is available in the adjacent lot of Simpson Strong-Tie.

Please join us in a demonstration of our shared commitment to an inclusive community, sanctuary for those fleeing persecution, and the mitzvah of Hachnasat Orchim, welcoming the stranger.
