Peace and Peacemakers in the Torah and Qur’an
Ted Brownstein and Imam Kamruz Hosein team up to discuss the central place of Shalom / Salaam in Torah and Quranic sacred narrative. As branches of the Abrahamic tree, Judaism and Islam share stories of estrangement and reconciliation that create a paradigm for peacemaking. Specifically, the stories of Ishmael and Isaac, and the story of Joseph inform the pain and potential for healing of modern conflicts.
Ted Brownstein and Kamruz Hosein team up to present a dynamic discussion on the rich heritage shared by Jewish and Islamic holy books as branches of the Abrahamic tree. Ted and Kamruz are both experienced interfaith leaders – Ted with the Lake Worth Interfaith Network, and Kamruz with JAM and All.
Ted holds a Master’s Degree in the Hebrew Bible, is a founder of the Lake Worth Interfaith Network, is an ambassador for the Parliament of the World’s Religions, and teaches classes in Hebrew Bible and Interfaith Dialogue online for the Wilmette Institute. Ted is also compiler of The Interfaith Prayer Book and author of the soon-to-be-released, Kinship of the Bible and Qur’an.
