"Top 10 Things You Must Know About ..."

 A World Interfaith Harmony Week Series

During the month of February, Religions for Peace USA (RfPUSA) is releasing a series of short educational videos inspired by World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW).  The videos are viewable here.

In 2014, RfPUSA and the El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) co-sponsored a “Best of Interfaith Webinar Series” for WIHW, featuring leading experts in the field.  A short summary video of the highlights from that series is available here and the whole series is viewable here.

Based on feedback from the thousands of viewers to that series, in 2015 EHF and RFPUSA are making a series of short educational videos featuring leading experts on their top 10 learnings in their key area of work.  They are dense, to-the-point learning opportunities for those interested in advancing interreligious cooperation.

The first, focusing on Interfaith Families, is live by Susan Katz Miller, author of Being Both.
