About this Event

The Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University is pleased to announce its upcoming conference, Welcoming the Stranger: Abrahamic Hospitality and Its Contemporary Implications. This forum will examine the positive and negative receptions of strangers in the three Abrahamic traditions through Biblical and historical anecdotes. Our examination will be deepened by a reevaluation of welcoming strangers around the world over the past 85 years. From forced isolation leading to genocide, to the refusal of asylum, we seek to understand the repercussions of welcoming and rejecting strangers in our modern, interconnected world.

This conference will include a number of renowned speakers, including:

Dr. Lindsay Balfour, Assistant Professor, Communication Studies, Concordia College

Rabbi Rachel Gartner, Jewish Chaplain, Georgetown University

Reverend Craig Mousin, Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, DePaul University

Dr. Zeki Saritoprak, Nursi Chair in Islamic Studies, John Carroll University

Rachel Stern, Founding Director and CEO, Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Oppressed, and Banned Artists

More details for this event are coming soon!
