The Interfaith Council of Flushing works to create understanding and common ground among various faith traditions in our community.

For the past five years, participants of the Interfaith Unity Walk have gathered and walked in the neighborhood of Flushing, the most diverse community in New York City. In the first year, we visited the Hindu Temple Society of North America, the Singh Sabha of New York (Gurudwara), the Muslim Center of New York, the Free Synagogue, and St. Michael’s Church.  The following year, the route included the Sikh Center of Flushing, Macedonia AME Church, the Syed Jamaluddin Afghan Mosque, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens, the Won Buddhist Temple, and a return visit to the Free Synagogue. In 2011, Unity walkers visited the Temples Gates of Prayer Synagogue, the Masjid Hazrat Abu Bakr Mosque, the Quaker Meetinghouse, and the Tzu Chi Center.  Each of these houses of worship provided a short talk on the tenets of their faith.

This community event is co-sponsored by Pax Christi Metro New York and Pax Christi Queens, Muslim Consultative Network, Turning Point for Women and Families, Free Synagogue of Flushing, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Queens, Women for Afghan Women, the Sikh Center of Flushing, One Flushing, Bahá’í Faith in Queens, the Center for Ethnic, Racial and Religious Understanding at Queens College, Flushing Quakers, the Muslim Progressive Traditionalist Alliance, the Flushing Jewish Community Council, and the Queens Counseling Services at the Foundation for Religion and Mental Health.
