In a world where religious extremists envision a future of global hatred, violence and bigotry, is there space for a reasoned peaceful discussion of religious differences in a pluralistic society? This, and other fascinating questions will be discussed in a roundtable interactive presentation by a rabbi, a priest, and an imam.
