Conference, June 24-27, Emerging & Aspiring Religious Educators Conference, USA

Aspiring and emerging religious educators – Christian, Jewish, and Muslim will participate  in a ground-breaking Emerging & Aspiring Religious Educators Conference to be held in late June 2012 to ask the vital question “What will we teach our children about each other?”

The conference, scheduled for June 24-27, 2012 at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in the Connecticut Berkshires, is the result of a unique partnership between the Retreat Center and the Manhattan College Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Education Center.

The conference’s goals include fostering relationships among future religious educators; exploring existing practices in religious education that help to shape narratives that lead to suspicion, misunderstanding, mistrust; and exploring potential practices, both within communities and through interreligious partnership, that would foster a new narrative promoting respect, understanding, and cooperation.
