Brit Tzedek v'Shalom
Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace
Interfaith panel on Middle East conflict set for Sunday

ALBANY — During the recent violence in Gaza, members of the Interfaith Alliance of New York State said they felt the need for calm dialogue, to learn from each other rather than score debating points about the crisis in the Middle East.
On Sunday, the alliance is presenting a panel discussion, "Can You Hear the Other Side?" Participants will give their viewpoints in a non-confrontational event at 3 p.m. at the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary at the College of Saint Rose.
Rashid Naim, a political scientist at Georgia State University, will express a Muslim point of view. Ethan Bloch, a member of Albany's Brit Tzedek v'Shalom (Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace) and a math professor at Bard College, will present a Jewish perspective. A Christian take on the issues will come from Karl Barbir, professor of history at Siena College. The moderator will be Paul Elisha, WAMC commentator and presenter of Performance Place.
Co-sponsors are the Muslim Community of Troy, Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, Capital Area Council of Churches, Labor-Religion Coalition of the Capital District and the Peace and Justice Commission of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.
"The dialogue process is aimed at listening to each other as openly and sympathetically as possible in an attempt to understand the other person's position as precisely and as much 'from within' as possible,'' according to the alliance. "In contrast to a debate, this kind of dialogue includes the challenging assumption that the other person's position could be persuasive enough to cause changes in one's own views."
