Confronting Hate in A Divisive Era

In celebration of the work of the late Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, we will take an interreligious look at confronting hate in a divisive era.

At a time in which ethnic, racial, ideological and religious conflict characterizes contemporary life, what can we learn from those who have worked and continue to work cross-culturally and inter-religiously to transcend and resolve differences? How can we break the link between hate speech and violence? What role does religion play both fostering and healing deep divisions?

Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, a seminal 20th century figure in interfaith and race relations around the world, was deeply involved in the historic Vatican II Council, which promulgated a landmark encyclical on Catholic-Jewish relations. He was one of the few Jewish leaders who worked closely with Reverend Billy Graham and other evangelical leaders. Inspired by his tradition’s ethic of social justice, he worked tirelessly as a civil rights activist and helped lead the Soviet Jewry liberation movement.

As our nation—and world—is ever more refracted by intolerance and its tragic aftermath, this introspection is timely and relevant. Join leading voices in the work to continue these efforts and gain a better understanding of what it means to confront hate in a divisive era.
