Tanenbaum Celebrates 30 Years of Building Respect for Interreligious Understanding, and Looks Forward to 30 More
Thirty years ago, the Tanenbaum | Center for Interreligious Understanding was founded by Dr. Georgette Bennett, to build on the legacy of her late husband, Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, a pioneer in the field of interreligious relations. At the time of the loss, Dr. Bennett imagined how the legacy of Rabbi Tanenbaum’s work could continue reaching people directly where they were, to encourage behaviors of respect….
Mark Fowler, Tanenbaum’s CEO shared, “Through Tanenbaum’s partnerships and work, we’ve seen the value of people having authentic and intentional conversations around building respect for religious difference, and what that means for them in their real lives. Over the next 30 years, Tanenbaum will expand our impact and offerings to create greater opportunities for individuals and institutions to understand and practice behaviors of respect for religious difference.”
