Kelly: Rabbi Azriel's interfaith work builds bridges for Omaha worshippers
Rabbi Aryeh Azriel of Temple Israel is a passionate proponent of interfaith efforts. His work has received attention worldwide, but he's not resting on his laurels: “There is a lot of work to do.” He hopes a mosque and church will complete an Omaha tri-faith campus before he retires in 2016.

The Omaha rabbi who helped protect a mosque on 9/11 is looking forward to his synagogue's future Muslim and Protestant neighbors — and to his Jewish daughter's marriage to a Catholic.
If that sounds like a lot of interfaith mingling, well, few have done more to promote understanding among faiths than Rabbi Aryeh Azriel of Temple Israel.
