Examples of inter-faith harmony have occurred at Bellevue Hospital and at Brooklyn College.

At Bellevue, a Catholic chapel was dedicated yesterday in the Administration Building, situated between a Protestant Episcopal chapel and a synagogue on the same floor. Since the Catholic chapel’s organ was not ready in time for the dedication, arrangements were made to use that of the synagogue, use of which was given by the chaplain, Rabbi Henry A. Schorr.

At Brooklyn College, the Catholic Newman Club and Protestant Student Christian Association accepted an invitation of the college’s B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundation to center all their activities at the Hillel Foundation. The plan grew out of the organization of Brooklyn College’s first student. Interfaith Council.
