It is a privilege and pleasure to share Carl Schinasi's talk with you. His thought-provoking speech about how each one us can contribute to making peace in the world is well worth reading.
Imam Um’Rani, congregants, guests, and friends, thank you for inviting me to speak here this evening. I must admit it also comes as a surprise. When Imam asked me to speak, I immediately suggested he contact someone at Temple Emanu-El. I explained to him that someone there could speak more knowledgeably about Judaism. When Imam assured me he wanted me to speak, I was thrilled. I was thrilled because I realized his invitation amounts to a great honor. Here I stand, a Jew from New York speaking in a Mosque at a pre-Ramadan banquet in the Deep South.
