  • Golden Rule Meditation Exercises
    Scarboro Missions is proud to announce the publication of the Golden Rule Meditation Exercises. These 21 meditation exercises are the fruit of a three-year project involving 25 writers, editors and consultants. The exercises foster reflection on the Golden Rule in 13 religions. Themes include compassion, healing, art, global citizenship, social justice, journaling, the circle and unity amidst diversity. The do-it-yourself meditations are designed for both individual and group reflection; some of the meditations focus on the visual qualities of the Scarboro Missions' Golden Rule Poster [source: INTERFAITH DESK NEWS: NEWS HEADLINES – May 2006].

  • Wearing A Kipa In Qatar, Rabbi Daniel S. Brenner - Special To The Jewish Week,
    Just after Qatar and Iran pledged $100 million to aid the struggling Hamas-led Palestinian Authority, I was on a Qatar Airways flight, staring out into the Saudi Arabian sky. A Western rabbi traveling to Qatar is hardly news. What was making headline news in the Arab world this year was the fact that — due to the groundbreaking work of Congregation B’nai Jeshurun’s Rabbi Rolando Matalon, Rabbi Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer, the Jewish Theological Seminary’s Rabbi Burton Vizotsky and Mark Cohen from Princeton University — rabbis from Israel were asked to speak at the Conference on Religious Dialogue in Doha.
    While I was flying over Mecca, Rabbi Yehuda Mirsky (Orthodox-Jerusalem) and Rabbi David Lazar (Conservative-Tel Aviv) were driving to Amman to catch a plane to Doha. Israeli rabbis headed for an inter-religious conference in a Wahabi Muslim land. That’s a first.

Many call themselves indigenous Muslims.

  • May you be happy, may your dreams come true, Stanford Report, June 15, 2005
    Sylvia Boorstein's keynote speech: 'May you be happy, may your dreams come true.' This speech was delivered without a text or notes and is a transcription of Dr. Boorstein's spoken words at the Multifaith Baccalaureate Celebration on June 11, 2005.
    "It's so great. I got so excited while that was happening. One of my meditation teachers used to end each of our interviews actually, I'd have my hand on the door ready to leave, and she'd say to me, "Remember, Sylvia, be happy," and I'd go out and I actually for a long time thought it was a salutation, like "have a good day" or something that you say just in a routine kind of a way, and it took me a long time to realize that it was an instruction, "Be happy," and not only that it was
    an instruction but that it was a wisdom transmission, that happiness was a possibility.
