NEW! Photo Collage/Video of the Fourth Meeting of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders (Haifa, October 2009)

Click on the link below to see a 10-minute video highlighting some of the faces, places, and special moments that made this gathering of Religious Studies scholars and religious leaders so powerful and -- God willing -- transformative. While this video cannot penetrate the depth of the encounters and the serious way in which the scholars and religious leaders engaged one another, it does offer a glimpse into the tangible love, respect, and reverence that we all felt. The video was photographed and edited by Claudia Henzler of HENZLERWORKS.
