Episode 169: Lippmann & Almontaser

Deb & Ellen  Rabbi Ellen Lippmann and Muslim activist Debbie Almontaser are united by their work for social justice and their affection for Kahlil Gibran. “You can’t really tell if he’s writing from a Christian perspective, a Muslim perspective, a Jewish perspective,” says Debbie. “It’s just so universal.” A conversation about common ground and the difference between a peace “walk” and a peace “march,” with music from Famoro and Djos Dioubate. Good times at Brooklyn’s Church of Gethsemane.
