Social Workers joined by Dr. Sheila C. Gordon to learn about “Interfaith Families: Religious Diversity at Home”
Our May 10 Social Work and Religious Diversity conference will delve into “Interfaith Families: Religious Diversity at Home” through discussions of Jewish, Muslim, and Zoroastrian perspectives.
During this panel, we will hear from Dr. Sheila C. Gordon, the founding president of Interfaith Community, an educational and community-building program for Jewish-Christian families who want to respect and support both of their religious heritages. She has overseen the organization’s multi-chapter evolution, along with the development of its curricula for children and adults, including workshops for couples and individual counseling. Married to a practicing Episcopalian, Dr. Gordon is a Conservative Jew who has served as co-chair of the interfaith committee of Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, and as liaison for Interfaith Community with the innovative, post-denominational congregation Romemu.
Social Workers and mental healthcare professionals are encouraged to register for this one day conference. Continuing Education Credits are available for New York State LMSWs and LCSWs.
