Empathy Now: A Multifaith Conversation between Dr. Celene Ibrahim and Rabbi Or Rose, founding director of the Miller Center for Interreligious Learning and Leadership of Hebrew College, was covered recently in Fig City News:

During the event, both speakers sat on stools facing the audience, taking great care to articulate their personal beliefs while unpacking particular buzzwords that surround the Israel-Palestine conflict. For a conversation on something as convoluted and heart-wrenching as this ongoing conflict, Rabbi Rose and Dr. Ibrahim were able to model a discussion based on respect and the desire to understand one another.

The dialogue between Rabbi Rose and Dr. Ibrahim, moderated by Rev. Parisa Parsa of the First Unitarian Society in Newton, was the first in a three-part series this summer offered by the Newton Interfaith Clergy Association, the Miller Center, the Islamic Center of Boston (Wayland), and the City of Newton.
