This is the fourth lecture in a series of four. It has been said that there can be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions.  How can rigorous and respectful dialogue with the religious “other” contribute to peace in the world?  What does the practice of dialogue teach us about how to live in a world of diversity?

The Series: Drawing on Judaism's rich body of sacred texts about peace and peacemaking, which she explores in her recently published From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace, Rabbi Amy Eilberg, the first woman ordained as a rabbi in Judaism's Conservative Movement and a Jay Phillips Center rabbi-in-residence, will discuss why conflict arises among individuals and groups, what contributes to the resolution of conflict, and how each of us can serve the cause of peace.  Click here to see the series homepage.
