Interfaith Engagement

The reality of religious diversity at Duke calls for numerous and varied opportunities for thoughtful, intentional interfaith engagement.

      Interfaith Round Table

      The Interfaith Round Table, funded by the Faith Council at Duke Chapel, meets regularly with the goals of building fellowship between Religious Life leaders, and strengthening appreciation for each other’s religious tradition. Each session focuses on a theme, with a Religious Life participant bringing a text from their tradition to reflect upon the theme. Themes of 2020 - 2021 were "Gathering" and "Protest." The group, coordinated by Rabbi Elana Friedman and Rev. Kathryn Lester-Bacon, is currently open only to Religious Life staff.

        Finding Sanctuary Speaker Series

        In collaboration with the Penny Pilgram George Women’s Leadership Initiative, Interfaith Engagement at Duke Chapel invited four dynamic women to campus in the spring of 2017. These women reflected publicly on the ways in which their lives and work meet at the intersections of faith-based advocacy and social justice. Listen to the first two talks, available on the Chapel's Apple podcast
