September Dialogue

The September Dialogue will take place on Sunday, September 22nd at 2:30 p.m, and our host will be the International Cultural Center, 19650 Clubhouse Road, Suite 205 Montgomery Village, MD 20886.   We will be discussing one of the “Dividers” from our What Unifies Us/What Divides Us project: the difference in the extent to which Jews and Muslims accept/reject the literal meaning of sacred texts and in the extent to which we have “branched vertically” (i.e., embraced and institutionalized non-traditional expressions of our faiths).   Among other issues, we will examine the root causes of this division, whether we can identify ways to heal any wounds that have resulted from this division, and whether it is possible truly to embrace our differences in this area rather than to fear them.
