OUR PAST & PRESENT

The Interfaith Alliance of NYS is an affiliate of the national Interfaith Alliance based in Washington, DC. TIANYS was founded in 1996 by the late Edward Bloch, a much beloved interfaith hero, who saw a need for a local grassroots organization that provided a mainstream, faith-based voice on issues involving justice and peace. TIANYS is a membership organization open to all people of faith, including those not affiliated with any congregation.
