Embracing the Gift and Necessity of Interfaith Dialogue: An Evening with Jack Gordon of “Interfaith-Ish”
In today’s religious and political climate, it is more important than ever to create and participate in spaces where diverse faith traditions and backgrounds can come together. Join Interfaith Action for a special conversation with Jack Gordon, who helps creates spaces for members of different faith traditions, political persuasions, and cultural backgrounds to engage in meaningful conversations.
Gordon is host of the radio show “Interfaith-ish” on WOWD 94.3FM Takoma Radio in Takoma Park, Maryland). His show is described as “conversations about what we believe, why we believe, and how we navigate the common ground and differences between our traditions.” He has worked as a professional documentary filmmaker for nearly 20 years, and recently directed the short film “To Bigotry No Sanction,” commissioned by George Washington University.
Gordon has been active in the Washington, DC area interfaith scene since 2010, serving on the board of the Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington and spearheading the annual DC Interfaith Leadership Summit for young adult leaders in the region until 2017. He grew up in a religiously mixed family and identifies as a Baha'i who is also culturally Jewish.
Join Interfaith Action for an evening of reflection on the gift and necessity of interfaith dialogue today.
