A virtual event presentation by Rabbi Dr. Alon Goshen-Gottstein


“Interreligious Heroes” brings together 43 premier faith leaders from six religious traditions.

These leaders were asked:

a. Who is a figure who inspires your interfaith work?

b. How does this figure inspire you, and what lessons, applications,

and concrete expressions has this inspiration taken in

your life?

The result is a stunning overview of the interfaith movement, its history, role models and heroes. Historical presentation complements the personal and experiential voice of the authors, making this not only a work for interfaith education but also a resource for spiritual inspiration.

The project was conceived as a tribute to Elijah board member and contemporary interreligious hero, Rabbi David Rosen, on the occasion of his seventieth birthday.
