Issue 149

Hello Western New York! We hope you have been enjoying the last remnants of sunshine before fall truly kicks in - those who attended our Diversity Cruise were lucky enough to do just that! Click here to view photos from the event.

Additionally, Eid ul Adha is upon us, and millions of Muslims around the world are making the pilgrimage to Mecca for the holy ritual of Hajj. It has been reported that the pilgrims hail from over 180 different countries! We wish them safe travels on their journey to Saudi Arabia and back.

And don't forget, our annual Roses of the Prophets event is coming up! Please visit our website to donate towards this event - your donations helps us to continue promoting peace and tolerance within the greater Western New York community, and every little bit makes a difference.
