Claremont Lincoln University (CLU) co-hosted an interfaith event on Sunday, November 10th with the Academy of Jewish Religion CA (AJRCA) to discuss the question, “In today’s polarized world, what can we do to welcome diverse communities in an environment that promotes constructive conversation?”
The afternoon program was rich with storytellers who shared their testimonies and perspectives on the importance of interfaith work to expand tolerance of differences among faiths and religions.
Rabbi Mel Gottlieb, AJRCA President and CLU Co-Founder/Board Member, moderated a thoughtful discussion among the panelists which included CLU Faculty Chair for the M.A. Peace and Social Justice Program, Dr. Keith Burton, Rabbi Susan Goldberg from Nefesh, Tasneem Farah Noor from NewGround, and Father Alexei Smith from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Directly following the panel discussion, attendees had the opportunity to immediately take action by getting involved with interfaith and social justice organizations in the community.
