Format: Zoom Webinar

Interfaith at Augsburg invites you to join in reflecting upon how various religious and secular traditions call for our engagement in loving and serving the neighbor, working for healing, justice, peace and mercy, and the care of creation in a divided and often distrustful nation and world.

Imam Makram El-Amin, Masjid An-Nur in Minneapolis
Professor Lori Brandt Hale, chair of Augsburg University’s Department of Religion and Philosophy
Rabbi Rabbi Arielle LeKach-Rosenberg, Assistant Rabbi, Shir Tikvah Congregation in Minneapolis

Following the presentations we will hear from student respondents, and there will be time for Q&A.

Our presenters:

Farhan Latif is a philanthropic leader, social entrepreneur and cross sector mobilizer on minority inclusion. He is the President of the El-Hibri Foundation, focused on cross sector approaches to foster inclusion across religious and political divides.

Imam Makram El-Amin has worked for more than two decades as a religious and community leader, firmly rooted in the principle of our inherent human dignity. Imam El-Amin leads Al Maa’uun (Neighborly Needs) Community Outreach Services that addresses food insecurity, affordable housing, career services, and mentoring.
Lori Brandt Hale is Professor and Chair of Religion and Philosophy at Augsburg University, where she has taught since 1998. Brandt Hale has devoted her academic career both to teaching and to studying the life and legacy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Rabbi Arielle LeKach-Rosenberg serves as Assistant Rabbi at Shir Tikvah with a focus on music, prayer and activism. She was ordained by the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in June 2017.
