The Dialogue Project’s 7th Annual Interfaith
Teach In! convened on Sunday, Nov. 16th at 1:30 PM at Plymouth Church
of the Pilgrims in Brooklyn Heights. The event drew clergy and lay
people from around the city who shared food, talk and curiosity
about each other’s faith, traditions and cultures. This year
the topic was “The Family of Humankind – How our texts,
histories and traditions understand Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia,
This year, we had three keynote speakers from the Abrahamic faiths
who provided the context for this year subject: Imam Khaled Latif
from the Islamic Center at NYU, Rev. David Fisher from Plymouth
Church of the Pilgrims and Rabbi Justus Baird from the Center for
Multi-Faith Education at Auburn Theological Seminary. Following
the keynotes, there were clergy and teacher-led table dialogues
that enabled participants to discuss the topic through the prism
of a selection of short texts.
