Fear, distrust, and misinformation have often characterized the relationships between Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities. This is still the case today.
This program will feature a panel of Jewish, Muslim and Christian thinkers to help participants understand forms of antisemitism and Islamophobia in contemporary American society, and dispel the biases that contribute to these occurrences of prejudice and hate.
Featured panelists are Charles Cohen, E. Gordon Fox Professor of American Institutions, Emeritus, at UW-Madison, Sulfiqar Shah, director of religious affairs of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee, and Rev. Julie Mavity Maddalena, Ulrich Ethicist in Residence, assistant professor of philosophy and religion and chaplain at Lakeland University. The panel will be moderated by Rev. Karl Kuhn, Grace Chair of Religious Studies and professor of religion at Lakeland.
The presentation will include time for questions.
This program is co-sponsored by Lakeland’s Ulrich Center for Faith, Ethics and Justice and the Wisconsin Conference UCC Faith Formation/Christian Education Commission.
