Interfaith Basketball Tournament
Sunday, September 16 2018 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Sycamore High School Gymnasium
As people are increasingly seeking out those with whom they agree—on social media and in person—three local faith-based groups are encouraging the opposite among local teens.
Crossroads Church, the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), part of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, will host an Interfaith Basketball Tournament at Sycamore High School on Sunday, September 16, with a goal of increasing interaction and discussion between teenagers from three different religious backgrounds. There will be a high school boys tournament, and new this year, a high school girls bracket.
Christian, Muslim, and Jewish teams will first compete against each other in round-robin play, then mix it up for some interfaith interaction in a 3-on-3 tournament.
The event on September 16 from 2-6 p.m. is free and open to the public. This program is funded by a Venture Award from the Cincinnati Jewish Teen Collective.
