    In this time of increasing polarization, there exists in each of us a deep desire to come together to form strong bonds that can withstand the divisiveness around us. This long-held desire is what has inspired interfaith outreach throughout America’s history, from its founding—built on the precept that society is stronger when people of all religions practice freely and contribute as equals—to Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herschel marching arm-in-arm with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma in 1965, to the creation of The People’s Supper in 2017, which works to create spaces (over food) where people can come together to learn from people of different backgrounds and worldviews.

    What can crossing religious divides teach us about bringing together Americans at this critical time in our nation’s history? Join us for a challenging and inspiring discussion with People’s Supper co-founder Rev. Jennifer Bailey, along with other young activists who are leading the way with interfaith outreach. How can people of faith bridge gaps with non-religious millennials, who are turning to other groups like SoulCycle for spiritual connection and community? What are the challenges and opportunities presented by this unique moment in our country’s history? You’ll gain new insight and leave not only feeling more connected to those of other faiths, but empowered to build new bridges of your own.
