NORTH GREENBUSH – Following tragedies like shootings at a mosque in New Zealand and synagogue in Pittsburgh, faith communities in the Capital Region gather for answers. That means working toward unity and mutual support.

More than 100 faith leaders met at Hudson Valley Community College on Monday for the inaugural Interfaith Community Forum. Organized by the new school president, Dr. Roger Ramsammy, it’s an interactive dialogue for various communities to help one another grow and learn the priorities toward a shared future.

"And we know that if we work together, those kids who are out there who probably don't know how to find their way, we're going to try to work together and help them to come together as one," said Ramsammy. "We work with a community to help bind everything together and help everyone to find a path that is unique no matter which one of the denominations."
