Conference Begins with Prayer, Learning & Community Building

Starting with a prayer of "welcome home" Rabbis from all over America and Israel, and from all the different denominations began to create a stronger movement of Rabbis for human rights.

Some of the highlights of the opening session:

The mixing and sharing of ideas from Rabbis (Gerry Serrota, Brian Wilt, Melissa Weintraub) Jewish institutional leaders (Ruth Messinger, John Ruskay), professors (Dr. Moshe Halbertal), secular Jews (Ken Roth from Human Rights Watch) and even non-Jews (the Imam of Georgetown University [I will update this with his name shortly]).

Given there is no net access at the conference and I am filing this from home at 12:30 at night I will post more tomorrow on what was said.
