The event will begin with an exploration of the Jewish imperative to help others, led by Rabbi Lord Sacks. Dr. Bennett will discuss how the Multifaith Alliance (MFA) is applying this giving imperative to the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time: the Syrian conflict. In exposing the scale of the crisis, she will explore the compelling role that religious actors and institutions can play in responding to conflict. By addressing the immediate crisis, she will reveal how MFA is helping to plant seeds for future stability in the region and how enemies are rising above politics to alleviate suffering.
