Religious tolerance and a celebration of diversity, those were the main topics at an interfaith dialogue Monday night in Delray Beach.

Religious leaders from a variety of different faiths participated on a panel and answered discussion questions.

Monday night’s meeting comes with a sense of urgency after the organizers say politicians and others are creating an anti-Muslim climate.

“We believe religion should be used to build bridges of understanding rather than walls of separation,” said Rabbi Barry Silver, one of the religious leaders who participated.

The group announced an Interfaith Justice League, which will unite those of different religions to tackle important social issues impacting the community.
