The world has become increasingly diverse as we continue to transition into a new digital age filled with social change. Though we have seen society begin to promote social acceptance, there should be more opportunities to expand on our communications about social issues.
Congregation B’nai Israel, located in Gainesville, will host an evening to promote discussion of the social issue of religion. Presenting the second program in a series called FaithSpeaks, the event will stimulate exploration through various faith communities across religious spectrums.
Keynote speaker for the program will be Rabbi Mark L. Winer, who was recently appointed as Director of the Center for Ecumenical and Interreligious Studies of St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida. Rabbi Winer has also been the President of FAITH: the Foundation to Advance Interfaith Trust and Harmony, a US Public Charity, since he founded it in 1995.
During the program, Rabbi Winer will focus on the future of relations among people of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths. This opportunity to openly discuss religion as a social issue could be beneficial to an organization looking to communicate cross culturally. Likewise, knowledge of present and future relations of people with these religions could be vital to choosing your target audience and communications strategy.
The event will take place at Congregation B’nai Israel on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit bnaigainesville.com.
