At right view a 7-minute opening reflection led by Rabbi Sharon Brous, the senior and founding rabbi of IKAR and a leading voice in reanimating religious life in America, working to develop a spiritual roadmap for a soulful, justice-driven, multi-faith ethos in Los Angeles and around the country.

The Islamic Council of New England [ICNE] and the Boston Workers Circle: Center for Jewish Culture & Social Justice  announce an important discussion series entitled: 'A Better Future for Israelis and Palestinians - Affirming the Sacredness of All Human Life.'  This four-part series will provide opportunities to consider a range of perspectives from distinguished speakers, both religious and secular, that illuminate the current situation in Israel and Palestine.

Speakers will engage with one another on the importance of listening, understanding the meaning of the Holy Lands to each religious faith, and sharing and acknowledging how our respective narratives impact our thinking about the present state of affairs. Through our differences, we hope to open our hearts and minds to one another, and, grounded in our values and faith traditions, become part of the solution as advocates for peace and justice in the region.  
Speakers include: 

October 13, Can We Share? Sanctity of the Holy Land; A Jewish, Christian and Muslim Perspective, (speakers: Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon, Rabbi Barbara Penzer, and Prof. Dr. Mustafa Abu Sway). 
October 27, Can We Acknowledge? Reflecting on Our Histories and Narrative, (speakers: Rabbi Aryeh Cohen, Nizar Farsakh, Gili Getz, Aziza Hasan, and Ayman Nijim). 
November 10, Can We Help? Our Role in Finding Solutions, (speakers: Nidal Al-Azraq and Rabbi Jill Jacobs).
