St. Timothy’s receives I-CAIR Award

St. Timothy’s, Cincinnati, was recently awarded the I-CAIR for Encouraging Dialog Award by the Cincinnati office of the Council on American Islamic Relations for hosting an interfaith dialogue series in 2017. CAIR Executive Director Karen Dabdoub noted that while the dialogue series, which has been held annually since 2007, would normally draw about 25-30 participants, the efforts of the people of St. Timothy’s in organizing, publicizing and preparing for this series drew 130 or more people for each of the four weeks.

“At CAIR we understand the great need in our society today, and never more so, for community institutions that are willing to go the extra distance to help our community become a better, safer, more compassionate place for all its inhabitants,” Dabdoub said in her award presentation.

Dabdoub also commended St. Timothy’s for messages on their electronic sign, which celebrate and value the rich diversity of the community.
