Chaplains of the Book
Chaplains of the Book is a full day program designed for Jewish and Muslim chaplains to build understanding and a more inclusive community of spiritual caregivers. Both kosher and halal meals will be provided. Programming is in Eastern Standard Time.
Participants will engage in learning and dialogue while creating allies with other members of a minority religious community. Chaplains from diverse settings, including health care, higher education, corrections, military, and the community chaplains, will have opportunities to share the challenges, joys, spirituality, and religious fulfillment of offering spiritual care through the prism of their respective faith traditions.
This groundbreaking event is sponsored by Neshama: The Association of Jewish Chaplains, The Association of Muslim Chaplains, Ziyara Muslim Spiritual Care Services, and Hartford International University for Religion and Peace.
ICP Director Dr. Kamal Abu-Shamsieh is on the planning team and will serve as a panelist.
