You are invited to join us for the Grand Opening of the International Islamic Museum of America, Atlanta's first Islamic Museum.
The first exhibit we will be hosting, the "Families of Abraham" exhibit, is a photographic narrative of eleven families, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim, who were selected to participate in one year of photography of their day-to-day life and faith traditions.
Eight documentary photographers captured major Holy Days in all three religions, such as Yom Kippur in the Jewish tradition, the Christian Easter celebrations, and the Muslim month-long Ramadan fast from sunrise to sunset. Important family milestones were also captured such as the first moments of life for a newborn Catholic baby, the Bar Mitzvah of a young Jewish boy, and the greeting of a newborn Muslim baby as the father whispers the Call to Prayer in the infant's ear.
Please join us for the truly great occasion. Together, we can truly make a difference!

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
