Davar will be hosting representatives from The Interfaith Encounter Association.
The IEA enables Muslims, Christians, Jews, and people of all faiths the unique opportunity to meet regularly, to talk to the "other", to overcome prejudices and build long-term connections between their communities. With time enemies become friends and the seeds of friendly inter-communcal relations bloom.
Talks will be Friday night (after mariv) and Shabbat afternoon (possibly before as well as after mincha). Speakers will include Dr. Yehuda Stolov (the founder of the organization), Rahhal Rahhal (one of its founding Muslim members), and Bob Carroll (Davrnik and Director of the Development Communications for the IEA). www.interfaith-encounter.org
