The Abraham Conference plays an important role in bringing Jews, Christians and Muslims together to discuss contemporary issues of concern for the members of the three religions and for the wider society.
The theme of this year’s Abraham Conference is “Interfaith on the Frontlines”. In the style of TEDx Talks, Jewish, Christian and Muslim frontline workers will share their stories of hardship and hope in uncertain times.

- The Christian speaker, Dr Dan Fleming, is Group Manager – Ethics and Formation for St Vincent’s Health Australia.
