Uniting Communities and Countering Hate: An Interfaith Panel

Join religious leaders from around St. Louis for a panel discussion on religious diversity and inclusion. The panel will focus on how individuals found/grew in their faith tradtions and how interfaith experiences shaped them.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Sr. Annie Stevens from Webster University and will include:

 

  • Rabbi Brigitte Rosenberg, United Hebrew Congregation
  • Imam Jilali Kacem, Majid Daraljalal
  • Rev. Wendy Bruner, Peace United Church of Christ

From The President & Provost:

The tragic loss of life in the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Saturday morning, October 27th, is the most recent of events that disturb us as individuals and urge us to encourage each other as we learn more, understand more, and act in ways consistent with our values.

The issues surrounding this event are complex and the impact far-ranging. As members of a university community that embraces diversity and inclusion as one of our core values, we seek to learn from and with each other in order to create a society in which each of us belongs and prospers. One of the many aspects of our diverse identities is our experience and relationship to various faith traditions. While respect for and valuing of the diversity of and/or absence of faith traditions remain elusive around the globe, nevertheless it is a topic that warrants our attention and concern.

- President Elizabeth (Beth) Stroble, Ph.D. & Provost Julian Z. Schuster, Ph. D.
