The Dialogue Project's interfaith events are held annually, bringing
together clergy leaders, regular "people in the pews," and many interested
others to dialogue. Each year we choose topics that promote
provocative, thoughtful and deep conversations.

Over 150 people gathered at the 8th Annual Interfaith Teach In on Compassion and Action to learn from an amazing array of teachers- Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and others sat at round tables with people of a faith or culture different than their own . Together we created dialogues around domestic violence, the environment, healing veterans returning from war, and bereavement and terminal illness.

7th Annual Interfaith Teach In

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, and Racism.”

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.
