The Interfaith Community of Long Island is a cooperative dedicated to serving Jewish-Christian families through the Brookville Multi-Faith Campus.  The Interfaith Community believes that today's families can successfully include two religions in their households.  Founded in 2005, the chapter draws its members from Nassau County as well as from Queens, Brooklyn, and Suffolk Counties.  What makes the Long Island chapter unique is that they are also part of Brookville’s Multi-Faith campus which is home to the Brookville Church, The New Synagogue of Long Island, and the Muslim Reform Movement.  Collectively these groups support one another by providing an open environment for learning, celebrating and honoring each distinct religion.  All are welcome.
