Daughters of Abraham was founded after 9/11 as a humble means of restoring peace to a troubled world. Scouring the community for women who would put aside their vulnerability and reach out in courage to those of other faiths, Janice Lord, founder, persisted until she had a small group of six women from each faith.
Since 2001, hundreds of women have sought out the group and discovered a treasure of interfaith relationships. No one denies the differences of their faiths, but the focus is on similarities. As authentic friendships develop, the differences seem to matter less and less. The women rejoice in their common monotheism, and they share a love of God and desire for peace in the community and the world.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Daughters of Abraham is a discussion group for women of three faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all religions with roots back to Abraham. We seek to enhance understanding of the spiritual and cultural similarities and differences among the three faith communities. Ideas and values to promote peace, harmony, and good will are shared at monthly meetings with the goal of building bridges and deepening human relationships.
