The Religious Mandate to do Good

Monthly Learning and Prayer session

Elijah Interfaith Institute

From: Elijah Interfaith Institute

Our upcoming monthly learning and prayer session, in conjunction with Praying Together in Jerusalem, will similarly serve as an appetizer for our upcoming summer program.

What is the religious mandate to do good? How do different religions provide a rationale and inspiration for doing good for the other, and consequently – how wide is the concept of “the other” conceived.

We will hear Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist voices on this question:

  • Rabbi Art Green
  • Prof. Karma Lekshe Tsomo
  • Imam Yahya Pallavicini

All three speakers are part of our faculty for the summer school program. We know you will like them, and we are sure you will similarly love our summer program.

Join us on Thursday July 1 at 11 am EDT time, for a study session (about one hour), followed by our monthly Praying Together in Jerusalem Program.

  • 4 pm UK time
  • 5 pm Central European time
  • 6 pm Israel time
  • 8:30 pm India time
