It's time now for another installment in our monthly series, Living Questions, in which we examine the role of religion in the public sphere. The series is produced in partnership with the Institute for Islamic Christian and Jewish Studies (ICJS).

ICJS is hosting a three-part lecture series called Imagining Justice in Baltimore. The purpose of the series is to reconcile and bring communities together in the wake of last year’s uprising following the death of Freddie Gray.

The series brings scholars from Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths to offer insights on the notion of justice from their spiritual perspectives.

Dr. Marc Gopin is a rabbi and the director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University. He is also the author of Bridges Across an Impossible Divide: The Inner Lives of Arab and Jewish Peacemakers. He joins Tom to discuss how conversations across religious lines can bridge ethnic and socio-economic divides. 

Dr. Marc Gopin is the second speaker in the Imagining Justice in Baltimore series hosted by the Institute for Islamic Christian and Jewish Studies (ICJS). He will speak  on Tuesday,  April 5th at 7pm at the Reginald F Lewis Museum of Maryland  African American History and Culture.
