Beinart, Bruenig and Ali

Journalists Wajahat Ali (Muslim), Peter Beinart (Jewish), and Liz Bruenig (Christian), a motley group of monotheists, discuss how they bring their faith to bear in their work navigating and working to heal the frayed political and cultural terrains of today’s political landscape, in a conversation moderated by Rabbi Shira Stutman.

As outliers and disrupters, how do they confront these challenges while still remaining part of their religious communities when other members at times consider them to be sell-outs or traitors? How does their unique perspective and position afford them opportunities to expose and confront uncomfortable truths in their faith communities and greater America?
