Program
Session 1 – 2.00pm to 3.15pm Grassroots reflection

  • Meriem Abida – CEO, Benevolence Australia
  • Noreen Lockhardt – Co-responsible, Focolare Movement Oceania
  • Mandi Katz, Limmud Oz Organiser

In a moderated panel discussion with grassroot community leaders we will reflect on the many ways in which community is affected by physical separation. What are the range of problems presented during this time of separation? What sort of long-term changes might this have on faith and on faith communities? What sort of provision is there in the different faith traditions that has helped to cope, maintain, and nurture each community.

Session 2 – 3.30pm to 4.45pm Faith Leaders reflections

  • Sheik Alaa El Zokm – Heidelberg Mosque
  • Rabbi Gabi Kaltmann – ARK Centre
  • Rev Julie Hall – Bentleigh Uniting Church

Three religious leaders reflect on how something we all take for granted, coming together in prayer and worship in a physical space, has been impacted by these times of social distancing. Has it created only anxiety and feelings of isolation or have we seen manifestations of love and kindness.
