Rumi Forum Podcast

Rumi Forum was founded in 1999 with the mission to foster interfaith dialogue and intercultural understanding. The Forum aims to stimulate exchange of opinions in order to advance culture of democracy, freedom of thought, human rights and peace. For over 20 years, the Forum provides a common platform for building relationships, mutual learning and information exchange among adherents of different faiths. Our work has a particular focus on pluralism, peacemaking, interfaith dialogue, intercultural understanding, social harmony and community cohesion.

Religious communities and organizations play a critical role in feeding the hungry, both in the United States and around the world.  Almost all faith traditions have mandates in their sacred texts to feed the hungry and care for the poor.  In the United States, a large proportion of emergency food assistance agencies such as soup kitchens and food pantries are faith-based.  In the international arena, organizations, communities, and houses of worship of many different faiths serve as key partners for food security program implementation and on-the-ground service delivery.  In this dialogue, Max Finberg will discuss with Dr. Mohamed El-Sanousi how both domestic and global work to feed the hungry can serve as powerful vehicles for promoting interfaith dialogue and cooperation.
