This winter our adult English Language Learners will be reading I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education. Our goal is to build community spirit through a shared reading experience. With a focus on commonalities and differences of the three Abrahamic faiths, finding Hope and Joy in the common struggle to stay engaged in the world, and Christian, Jewish and Muslim perspectives on education, particularly the education of women in developing countries we will hold an interfaith panel with:
The Rev. Anne Mansfield Minton, articulating the Christian perspective
Rabbi Allison Berry, Temple Shalom of Newton, articulating the Jewish perspective
Saadia Husain Baloch, Outreach Coordinator, Islamic Center Boston/Wayland, articulating the Muslim perspective
John McDargh, Ph.D., Department of Theology, Boston College, moderator
The program is cosponsored by Cooperative Metropolitan Ministries and the Newton Human Rights Commission.
