About this EventView map Add to calendar
Los Angeles is at once the largest Catholic archdiocese in the United States, and the most religiously diverse city in the world. It has the second largest Jewish population in America (after New York City), and one of the largest Muslim populations. As one of the oldest, Catholic institutions of higher learning in Los Angeles, Loyola Marymount University maintains an institutional commitment to interfaith dialogue, especially between Christians, Jews, and Muslims.
The Martin Gang Institute for Intergroup Relations and the Center for Religion and Spirituality invite you to this interfaith dialogue public forum on Facebook. A panel of representatives of the Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim communities will talk about their own tradition’s relationship to God, as well as the challenges and opportunities interfaith encounters present those working in pastoral ministry throughout the Southland. These presentations will be include a public Q&A on the comment board. A similar forum will be conducted in Spanish on April 7.
– Rabbi Mark Diamond, senior lecturer of Jewish Studies at LMU and former director of the American Jewish Committee in Los Angeles
