A Successful 1st Seminarian Interfaith Seminar in 2014

On Updates

Ten Jewish and Christian students joined the crowd for the ISNA convention over Labor Day weekend.  These students are studying to become religious leaders in various Christian and Jewish traditions; they received funding to attend ISNA through the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign.  The students attended many ISNA sessions and commented on the vast diversity of thoughts shared and topics discussed throughout the COBO center over the weekend.  Additionally, the Jewish participants in particular were moved by the warmth with which Muslim attendees welcomed them and inquired about their attendance there.  The group discussed a range of topics, from dealing with anti-Muslim bias in their communities to strategic approaches to inter-religious collaboration against hate, bigotry and injustice in the United States.
