Faith and Political Polarization

October 29, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

You don’t have to be a DC politics junkie to see the effect political polarization is having on our society, and this is a topic JIDS has tackled before.  But on Oct. 29th, we’ll look at the topic through a different prism, that of faith.  Just what roles does faith play as to the political and cultural schisms that mar our society?  Is it a cause of the problem?  Or is it a potential antidote?  And most importantly, what can we, as people of faith or members of faith communities, do to confront these issues?

Join JIDS, Braver Angels, the Rumi Forum and our host, Kol Ami Reconstructionist Community, in what figures to be a fascinating afternoon.  It will be kicked off by presentations by Ibrahim Anli, Exec. Director of the Rumi Forum and a member of the Braver Angels Scholars Council, and Sofi Hersher Andorsky, V.P. of Strategy and Communications at A More Perfect Union: The Jewish Partnership for Democracy.  That will be followed by one-on-one conversations, small group discussions, and a return to plenary session for an action-oriented conclusion to the event.
