You are invited to the 44th Annual Catholic-Jewish Women's Conference featuring keynote speakers Rabbi Susan Leider, Congregation Kol Shofar inTiburon, and Professor Kim Harris, Loyola Marymount University. The conference is sponsored by the Martin Gang Institute for Intergroup Relations.

Life in community grounds both Jews and Christians — our vibrant sacred communities nurture and challenge us, heal our wounded hearts, and most vitally, send us forth to embody God’s mercy and justice in a suffering world. The unforeseen crises of 2020 — deadly pandemic, economic collapse, long overdue racial reckoning — have made our society’s suffering unbearably acute. They have also laid bare individualistic cultural pressures that can undercut our best efforts to stand in solidarity with those most in need. But even with the doors of our synagogues and churches shuttered, Scripture’s resounding call to reach out in love to the least and the lost remains more
urgent than ever.

Drawn together, albeit in cyberspace, we will explore the richness of our communal traditions, and embrace the courage and compassion necessary to build a more “Beloved Community.”
