Is Peace Possible in the Middle East?

Is Peace Possible in the Middle East?


Joseph Cumming

Director, Reconciliation Program

Yale Center for Faith and Culture

Yale Divinity School


The Yale Divinity School is leading a program to bring together Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders to reconcile the theological, political, social, cultural, ethical issues that traditionally divide them.  Rev. Joseph Cumming, the Director of the Reconciliation Program, has a wealth of information to share with us about the progress that is being made in the Middle East and the work that remains to be done.  By bringing political and religious leaders together in new ways, can Yale play an important role in the peace process and help to bridge differences that have not been resolved through the political process alone?


The recent conference at Yale was featured in the Sept/Oct 2008 issue of the Yale Alumni Magazine ("Love Thy Neighbor") with Joseph Cumming's response to the Letters to the Editor in the Nov/Dec 2008 issue and Letters to the Editor in the Jan/Feb 2009 issue.


We scheduled this event after the first 100 days in office for President Obama and after several important political events in the Middle East to learn how much the situation in the Middle East has changed during the first months in 2009.
