The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD) organizes Interfaith Panels involving clergy or other religious personnel from multiple faiths. The panels are generally composed of a Muslim, a Christian and a Jew, but panels involving a Bahai and/or Druze can be requested. Different topics that may discussed at a panel include coexistence, environmental sustainability and faith teachings, Jerusalem as a holy city, and/or stewardship of the Holy Land. The panels enable students, tourists, or others to hear multiple narratives from people of faith living in Jerusalem.
Duration of Activity: 1 1\2 Hours
Community/Narrative: Israeli, Palestinian, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Druze, Bahai
We are a registered Israeli non-nrofit organization, and we give fair wages to our employees. During our interfaith panels we teach others about environmental sustainability: what we can do to lessen our affects on the environment and what we can do to actually benefit the environment. Our panels have people from different religions in our local community. Each panelist talks about faith teachings pertaining to their religion.
