Our annual gathering honors the legacy of Ibrahim Abdurrahman Farajajé, who died prematurely in February of 2016. Dr. Farajajé was a transformational figure in theological education, an organic intellectual and a self-defined “scholartivist”. He taught for twenty-one years at Starr King School for the Ministry and has formed generations of ministers, denominational leaders, scholars, and activists. This panel will honor his intersectional scholarship in the areas of organic multireligiosity, Islamic and Jewish studies, queer studies, anti-racism, multireligious education, disability studies, eco-justice, and transformative pedagogies.

Josh Snyder of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio will open the event with a chalice lighting. A reception will follow immediately after the discussion. Co-sponsored by Harvard Divinity School, Meadville Lombard Theological School, Starr King School for the Ministry, Beacon Press, and the Unitarian Universalist Panel on Theological Education.
