Jewish and Muslim Leaders Talk Peace-Building in the Middle East
Instead of being used to justify injustice and violence, how can our religious traditions be used to promote inclusive justice and genuine reconciliation?
This Sunday, September 15, from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., Imam Yahya Hendi and Dr. Yehezkel Landau offer their practical insights based on decades of experience as religious peacebuilders in the Middle East and North America. The Sunday program will take place at Swarthmore Presbyterian Church in Loeffler Chapel.
The pair will resume their conversation on Monday, September 16 at 7:30 in the evening at Swarthmore College. “Building a Just Peace in the Middle East: Jewish and Muslim Perspectives” will be held at Swarthmore College in the Dome Room of the Hormel-Nguyen Intercultural Center at Sproul Hall, 7:30 pm. This will be a keynote address and discussion with participants from the campus community.
These programs, free and open to the public, are co-sponsored by the Interfaith Center at Swarthmore College, Partners in Ministry, and the Swarthmore Presbyterian Church.
