On 16 June, at the Jewish Limmud Oz Ideas Festival we presented two workshops. One was titled Hearts filled with hatred: honest and personal reflections on interfaith challenges” was presented by our National Director Rabbi Zalman Kastel, International speaker David Sandmel, Imam Farhan Khalil and Father Patrick McInerney. Some of this session is available on our Facebook page. Also at Limmud Oz Imam Farhan, Zalman and psychologist professor Amanda Gordon presented An Imam, a Hasidic Rabbi and a Psychologist reflect on spirituality and mental health.
Together for Humanity fosters students’ interfaith and intercultural understanding, and in doing so brings communities together.
Together For Humanity (TFH) works in Australian schools to foster intercultural understanding. It is an inclusive organisation comprised predominantly of Christians, Muslims and Jews, but also includes others who believe in our mission and principles. We stand for acceptance of every person regardless of color, ethnicity or faith. We counter prejudice dividing people who differ on matters of faith or cultural origin. TFH’s teams deliver programs to teachers and school students at their schools. We have three online professional learning courses for teachers and intercultural understanding resources for use by teachers and students linked to the Australian Curriculum and for parents and the general community on our online resource www.differencedifferently.edu.au. TFH is a registered charity.
