Join the Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP) for a panel discussion about the transformative potential of interfaith work.
In the wake of a year shaped by a global pandemic, protests for racial justice, extreme political polarization, and more, so many in and outside the Jewish community are facing personal crises and family tragedies. Through it all, we have seen communities respond to those in need by forming and expanding mutual aid networks, advocating for comprehensive safety protocols and transparency, highlighting inequalities, and finding ways to stay connected in the midst of so much physical isolation. Faith-based and interfaith organizations have been uniquely positioned to offer support in this time.
We are so excited to explore this subject with five distinguished interfaith professionals:
Executive Director of NewGround: A Muslim Jewish Partnership for Change
Reverend Amanda Henderson
Director of the Institute of Religion, Politics & Culture at the Iliff School of Theology, Former Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado
