Each year, a different faith group is assigned the chairmanship of the Interfaith Partnership/Faith Beyond Walls annual dinner. This year, the dinner was hosted by the St. Louis Muslim community, and the largest crowd in the 
event's 18-year history turned out for a night of interfaith dialogue.

About 420 people of all religious stripes converged on the Hilton St. Louis 
Frontenac Thursday night to share a meal and hear from the night's keynote speaker, Mustafa Ceric, the grand mufti of Bosnia. 

Imam Muhamed Hasic of the Islamic Community Center, a largely Bosnian mosque in St. Louis, said Ceric was "the highest authority for Bosnian Muslims. He's like the pope for us."
