"This is the place!"

So said Mormon apostle Brigham Young when he first saw the Salt Lake (Utah) valley, July 24, 1847. Yet, almost every religion has its holy place(s).  At Abraham's Cafe, you get a chance to ask "Where do we feel closest to God? Are some locations really sacred?" with local leaders of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Rabbi Ammos Chorny of Or Shalom synagogue, Fr. Michael Bechard of King's University College and Dr. Wael Haddara of University Hospital look at places where God has supposedly come near. Hosted by former CFPL radio and TV personalilty, Ross Daily. Q&A to follow.

Date: May 17, 2010 (7.00 p.m.)
Location: Stevenson & Hunt Room, Central branch library.
Cost: Free.
