CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

They took off their shoes, covered their heads and stepped out of their comfort zone all to understand another. 

“We’re not trying to convert anyone to one religion or another. Just to respect and understand and this is what the make-up of Chattanooga really is,” Michael Dzik, Executive Director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga said. 

Men and women from all walks of life and different kinds of faith filled a room Monday to learn more about other religions that make up the community and also the challenges they face. 

“There’s Christians, Jews and Muslims that are all here. I think it’s fantastic. People want to support all of the communities,” Dzik added. 

The goal, to open a kind of dialog that’s never happened before with the hope that a new line of respect will follow. 

If you’re interested in holding an interfaith panel, call Michael Dzik at 423-493-0270.
