Scottish Interfaith Week

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Inter-Faith Association)

Scottish Interfaith Week starts on Sunday 22nd November. It's a week of events aimed at promoting tolerance, understanding, companionship between people of all faiths.* EIFA believes that now, more than ever, such work is needed to ensure divisions do not take hold after events such as those witnessed last weekend in Paris, which have already had repercussions in Scotland.
