“A Song Every Day” focuses on Jewish thought, often highlighting issues of gender and sexuality. These issues are central to interdenominational Jewish differences as well as to controversies within and across other faith communities. …And yet, much interfaith and interdenominational dialogue proceeds without directly addressing gender — beyond, perhaps, “balance by numbers.” Guidelines for local dialogues rarely mention the topic. Scholarly explorations remain largely within academy walls. This must change if inter-religious dialogue is to truly succeed. And successful inter-religious dialogue is essential to addressing many conflicts here in the U.S. and abroad. Thus, “A Song Every Day” offers “InterFaith and Gender” resources. Here’s the new parent-page: Gender / Sexuality / Dialogue. Thanks for your patience as “A Song Every Day” undergoes some re-organization.
