Children of Abraham

Ohio Humanities seeks to help Ohioans to engage in conversations about our diversity and how it can both unite and divide our communities.

In response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, Ohio Humanities created a traveling exhibit entitled Children of Abraham in partnership with the Cincinnati Freedom Center, the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, the Edward Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University, Bridges for a Just Community, and the University of Cincinnati.   This exhibit highlights the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths, exploring the similarities and differences among these religious groups.

We are now pleased to offer Children of Abraham in a digital format for easy printing and posting in your library, classroom, or houses of worship, or community organization.

A higher resolution version is available from Ohio Humanities, please email: dmerkowitz@ohiohumanities.org.
