The clergy who worked to bring about this inter-faith event: Ambareen Jafri, Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer, and the Rev. David Gray.
Three local faith communities — Bethesda Jewish Synagogue, Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church and the Idara e-Jaferia Mosque — hosted a dialogue on Sunday, July 8, with 10 young adult leaders from Israel and Palestine who are participating in the New Story Leadership Summer Intern program. The NSL interns shared stories about their lives growing up in the midst of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and their work to promote better understanding and a shared future for their communities. They also engaged in a question and answer session with more than 100 attendees and continued informal dialogue with the three faith communities.
