My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA
I, Sister Kathryn Huber OSB, have been connected with The Salaam Network (TSN) and its founder, Dr. Raffat Hassan, for almost three years. The Salaam Network is a group of interfaith educators, peacemakers, justice activists, and interested citizenry who are committed to promoting greater understanding and wholeness in the city of Louisville and the area known locally as “Kentuckiana” (Kentucky and southern Indiana). The purpose is to make Louisville and the surrounding areas more understanding and compassionate in receiving the "other." The TSN programs help overcome prejudices and discriminations in our communities.
Since its founding in 2016 TSN has made number of presentations at religious and educational venues, especially on the three Abrahamic traditions-JudIsm, Christianity, and Islam. Moses, Jesus, Muhammad-all taught union and communion with the Divine, by whatever name we call the Divine, as well as greater compassion and understanding of humanity and all creation.
I have attended TSN programs primarily those of the three Abrahamic traditions. I also have been a presenter in a program, Mary, the Mother of Jesus, as presented in the Christian Scriptures and in the Quran. Two other Benedictine sisters of my monastery have also participated. Sister Anita Louise Lowe provided harp music for the program on Mary. Sister Jeana Visel presented in the program on Fasting in the Three Abrahamic Traditions. TSN has done much education on various aspects of Islam. All programs have been both enlightening and enriching for presenters and participants.
I am greatly enriched by being a volunteer in the The Salaam Network.
