STRANGERS ARE PEOPLE WE HAVEN’T YET MET
A Five-Week Course on Interfaith Engagement
As the religious and cultural landscape in America is becoming more diverse and complex on a daily basis, it is not surprising that many of us know little about our neighbors, their ways of life, beliefs and traditions.
This class, sponsored by the Academy for Jewish Religion California (AJRCA) will meet on five consecutive Tuesdays from 1/30 through 2/27 from 7:00pm-8:30pm at the UCLA Hillel House.
Come explore the most challenging and exciting interfaith dialogue of our day, the conversation that is taking place right now and expanding rapidly throughout America and in many other countries around the globe. This class, taught by Ruth Broyde Sharone, a veteran interfaith activist, filmmaker and journalist, will discuss the history of interfaith dialogue in America — going back to 1893 — give learners a rare opportunity to meet leaders and representatives from the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh communities, and beyond. It will help you to become familiar and comfortable with fellow Americans of multiple backgrounds.
