Ruth Broyde Sharone: Filmmaker. Author. Journalist. And now — creator of INTERFAITH: The Musical.
Honored internationally for her passionate interfaith activism and leadership, Ruth Broyde Sharone is the songwriter and lyricist of INTERFAITH: The Musical. All the songs on the album were written by Ruth, and arranged by the talented Kc Daugirdas.
In recognition of her contributions to bridge-building, Ruth was inducted into the Martin Luther King Advisory Board of Morehouse College in 2013. In 2015 Ruth received a special commendation as an Interfaith Leader from Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti. Her interfaith memoir, MINEFIELDS & MIRACLES is a fascinating odyssey of her global interfaith adventures and misadventures. The book received three literary awards and more than 30 endorsements from prominent religious leaders, including H.H. the Dalai Lama, best-selling author Marianne Williamson, and founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, Eboo Patel.
From 1993-2000, Ruth led multiple interfaith pilgrimages from Cairo to Sinai to Jerusalem, which were highlighted on CNN World News. In 2007 Ruth co-founded the Southern California Parliament of the World’s Religions (sccpwr.org) and has served as its Co-Chair for the last ten years. She is also a well-known correspondent for The Interfaith Observer.
A popular public speaker, Ruth travels frequently to college campuses and community centers to present her interfaith programs and award-winning film, GOD AND ALLAH NEED TO TALK. Recently Ruth was invited to launch a new course called “Interfaith Activism and Beyond” for the Academy of Jewish Religion California (ajrca.org), a trans-denominational rabbinical and cantorial seminary.
Ruth believes the arts are the most powerful vehicle for sparking interfaith dialogue. Each song of INTERFAITH: The Musical came to Ruth as a messenger bearing the gift of peace. Before long, Ruth was inspired to write the entire musical which, with your help, will be Broadway-bound on the wings of peace. Noting that the world is facing an intense and disturbing period of religious violence with unrestrained prejudice against “the other,” Ruth’s goal is to reach a broad audience who will be inspired to co-habit the earth with everyone included. Imagine what can happen when we really give peace a chance.
The proceeds from the sale of the INTERFAITH: The Musical album will be used to help produce the show. To purchase the album for $20, click here:
