30th Anniversary: Imagine. Create. Build.

Thirty years ago, Tanenbaum was founded by Dr. Georgette F. Bennett, to build on the legacy of her late husband, Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, a pioneer in the field of interreligious relations. Through innovative resources, experiential trainings, and comprehensive solutions that foster respect for religious and non-religious beliefs and practices, Tanenbaum has become a globally recognized expert providing thought leadership on building respect for difference.

Over the next 30 years, Tanenbaum will raise the bar on what behaviors of respect can look like in education, health care, peacebuilding, and at work. Read our latest press release here.
