Muslim and Hindu Exchange Students, Jewish teens learn about religions

Something that has intrigued me on this ongoing spiritual journey is the topic of how culture and religious beliefs are passed from parent to child.

Because of this, I found this Washington post article fascinating – it highlights a program by Congregation Beth El in Bethesda and AFS Intercultural Programs brings together U.S. and international teens of different faiths.

Information, true interaction, and shared experiences can combat fear and discrimination. I am heartened when I see young people having opportunities that can help them think about what they believe – and learn about what other’s believe.
