Faith in Action: Jewish, Christian, & Muslim Solidarity for Just Peace in Times of Conflict

October 18, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

Harvard Divinity School
Braun Room (Swartz Hall 101)

45 Francis Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

This event has been adapted to account for changes in speakers.

Join us for a dialogue between three scholar-practitioners who draw inspiration from their respective faiths in order to advocate for a just peace. This talk will provide an opportunity for deep discussion of faith-based activism, liberatory readings of theological texts, and the complex and, at times, controversial role of multi-faith and international solidarity in the Palestinian liberation movement during times of crisis.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Atalia Omer, T. J. Dermot Dunphy Visiting Professor of Religion, Violence, and Peacebuilding; and Senior Fellow in Conflict and Peace, Program in Religion and Public Life
  • Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon, Executive Director of Churches for Middle East Peace, Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) pastor, former Senior Director of Advocacy and Outreach for World Vision U.S. 
  • Third speaker to be determined

Moderator:
Diane L. Moore, Associate Dean of Religion and Public Life, Lecturer on Religion, Conflict, and Peace, and Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of World Religions
