The Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership is holding a one-day workshop, “Religion and Conflict Transformation,” for community leaders to explore the vision of our religious communities as contexts for the discovery of “higher ground.”

The presentations will be interactive and will offer specific skills and practices from the world of conflict transformation to assist professionals and lay leaders in realizing this vision.

“The Higher Ground workshop offers community leaders an important opportunity to gain practical skills in dialogue and relationship-building from a gifted team of mediators, religious leaders, and scholars,” said Rabbi Or Rose, Director of the Miller Center for Interreligious Leadership & Learning at Hebrew College. “In this moment of intense political polarization in our country, we need such gatherings to help us center ourselves and find a new way forward.”

A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. Kosher and Halal dietary laws will be observed. For further details and to register, click “Go.”
