The Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago celebrates its 25th anniversary at 5:30 pm Monday, June 21, in the Garfield Park Conservatory.

We will have the council's president, Imam Kareem Irfan, who is the first Muslim to head the council. Our other guest is a former council president, Rabbi Herman Schaalman, who will give the keynote speech at the anniversary celebration. (By the way, a frequent Newsviews guest, Francis Cardinal George, will introduce Rabbi Schaalman at the celebration).

The council includes leaders of virtually every religion, including Bahai, Episcopal, Greek Orthodox, Hindu, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim, Protestant, Roman Catholic, etc.
