Faith, Fear & Indifference: Constructing Religious Identity in the Next Generation.
Conference registration is now open for "Faith, Fear & Indifference: Constructing Religious Identity in the Next Generation."
Taking place on October 10-11, 2004 on the campus of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, this conference will explore the shifts in religious engagement that are occuring around the world and across the religious spectrum.
Is there a growing gap between those adopting a more strict religious practice and individuals who are opting out of organized religion altogether? How can religious tradition be passed on to the next generation?
Co-sponsors of the Conference include Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, The Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies, The Omar Ibn Al Khattab Foundation, and the University of Southern California. Whether you are a rabbi, professor, Jewish communal professional, or concerned lay person, this conference will inspire you with new ideas on how to engage our younger generation in carrying forward our religious heritage.
