Temple Young Professionals: Interfaith Dialogue Dinner

Tuesday, Mar 28  6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Temple Young Professionals

We invite you to join your friends at The Temple, in addition to The Candler School of Theology, and The Madina Institute for our series of “Interfaith Dialogue Dinners.”  Harmony among the major faiths has become an essential ingredient of peaceful coexistence in our world.  The aim of these dinners it to promote religious harmony with ourselves and our neighbors, as well as to dispose of the notion of “other”—there are no others when you really get to know each other.  We hope you will join us around the table, over a simple meal with people of diverse and religious spiritual backgrounds as we come together and offer thought provoking dialogue based on the broad themes present in our lives.  

The dates and locations are the following:

Tuesday evening, March 28th from 6:30pm-8:30pm:  

The Candler School of Theology at Emory (1531 Dickey Dr, Atlanta, GA 30322).

Dialogue facilitated by Rev. Deanna Womack, Assistant Professor of History of Religions and Multi-faith Relations.

Tuesday evening, April 12th from 6:30-8:30pm:

The Temple (1589 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30309). 

Dialogue facilitated by Rabbi David Spinrad, Associate Rabbi and Director of Rothschild Social Justice Institute

Tuesday evening, April 19th from 6:30pm-8:30pm:

The Madina Institute (3580 Sweetwater Rd, Duluth, GA 30096).
