In Words to Live By: Sacred Sources for Interreligious Engagement (Orbis Books, 2018)  a group of distinguished scholars, educators, and activists from Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and Humanist traditions, provide their response to this pressing question.
Contributors to the anthology, co-edited by Hebrew College Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership Director Rabbi Or Rose with Rev. Soren Hessler and Dr. Homayra Ziad, explore sacred texts from their traditions that inspire their interreligious activities.
In reflecting on the aims of the anthology, Rabbi Rose commented, “We hope this diverse collection helps readers think carefully about their religious and interreligious commitments, and moves them to take thoughtful action to heal our beautiful, but fractured world.”
Please join us on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:30 pm at Hebrew College as we celebrate the publication of this new and timely anthology. The evening will include a panel discussion among book contributors, Dr. Francis X. Clooney, Dr. Celene Ibrahim, Dr. Mary Elizabeth Moore, and Dr. Jennifer Howe Peace—and reflections by Rabbi Or Rose and Rev. Soren Hessler.
