Bloomfield, Executive Director of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs; Diana Eck, Fredric Wertham Professor of Law and Psychiatry in Society, Harvard Divinity School; and Herbert C.

It will also highlight the issues of education, interfaith activities, and Jerusalem as foci of dispute and “trialogue.”
