Faithbook, a new social-networking facility promoting interfaith dialogue, went live on the Facebook website this week.

The resource which combines images, videos and content from various faiths’ texts, was the initiative of the Reform Movement and marks the launch of its new gender-neutral
siddur.

Leaders from the nine major faiths involved have launched the site with discussions on religion in modern society, countering extremism through new media and other topics.

Facebook is the sixth most-trafficked website in the world and the second most-trafficked social-media site.
