The armed attacks on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher market. The ISIS reign of terror. These incidents inspire fear, hatred, and mistrust of those whose religious beliefs differ from our own. In these troubling times ignorance and prejudice can infect our communities, preventing the cohesion and cooperation required for our neighborhoods to thrive.
Communities in Conversation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that aims to combat ignorance and religious animosity. We provide opportunities for individuals to meet and learn from members of our own community with different religious beliefs. Our goal is to form expanding circles of awareness, knowledge, sympathy and fellowship within our neighborhoods. These circles begin from small-scale conversations, held in a neutral space, that are grounded in a study guide that is written to provide basic factual information about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
