At our next meeting this Sunday, 31 May at 1pm UTC (you can check how this translated to your timezone here), the speaker will be Wendy Goldberg, Executive Director of the Tri-Faith Initiative.
Tri-Faith Initiative is a unique and ambitious project in the field of interfaith relations in design, scale, and scope. It brings together into permanent residency a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus in the middle of America’s heartland.
Wendy Goldberg will share insight on how they have worked for a decade to cultivate inclusive environments to advance relationships and understanding.
The format of our “Motivational Dialogue Sessions” series is simple: a guest speaker delivers a presentation of 10 to 15 minutes, and a conversation follows. The first speaker was Rabbi Robert Carroll, talking about religious freedom and the pandemic, followed last by Betsy Darr, who related the pandemic to environmental issues and IARF work, and finally Prof. Arben Sulejmani, who talked about IARF’s collaboration with the Bektashi. You can watch recording of previous sessions on our YouTube Channel.

– 8am CDT,
– 2pm BST (UK),
– 3pm CEST (Europe),
– 4pm IDT (Israel and Eastern Europe)
– 6:30pm IST (India),

We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Stay safe and healthy!
