Tune in this weekend to Interfaith Alliance’s weekly radio show and podcast State of Belief as we explore what it is about Passover and Easter that moves Jews and Christians to reconnect with their faith. We’ll hear from…
…Rabbi Irwin Kula, President of CLAL (The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership). For the fifth consecutive year, Newsweek named him one of the “Top 50 Rabbis in America,” and he is the author of Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life.
…The Rev. Dr. James Forbes, Jr., President of Healing of the Nations Foundation. He is Senior Minister Emeritus of the Riverside Church in New York City.
Plus Dr. Leila Ahmed, the Victor S. Thomas Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School, discusses the history and significance of the veil, as worn by Muslim women, in the aftermath of France’s new law banning the wearing of veils in public. Ahmed published A Quiet Revolution: The Veil’s Resurgence, from the Middle East to America, this month.
And filmmaker Jay Rosenstein discusses his new PBS documentary, “The Lord is Not on Trial Here Today,” on the history behind the separation of church and state in public schools. The Peabody Award-winning film is scheduled to be aired in May.
