An Interfaith Dialog Panel was organized in October between Jewish-Muslim Communities by the Peace Islands Institute Upstate NY with the partnership of Temple Beth Hamedresh, Temple Beth Am, Temple Beth David and TCC Rochester at the BHBI.
Two panelists from each side had 20 minutes of presenting their perspectives on the topic of “The Role of Women in Our Religious Traditions”. Rabbi Amy Sapowith from Temple Sinai of Rochester, Sister Jasmin from Islamic Center of Rochester and Mrs. Esra Gedemenli from PII were the speakers.
They both presented the topic from the sacred texts and human context perspectives. It was a very informative panel which led people to benefit from it and the warm conversation after the program.
