About Us

It represents a new publishing effort at a time of profound transition in international relationships. As a shared venture between three interfaith groups, it aims to transcend narrow interests by providing a platform for reflecting with passion on many of the critical issues facing our world.

The name was chosen with great care in order to mirror an emerging task. Given that they have traditionally acted as overarching worldviews, the religions have long been accustomed to thinking of these as self-sufficient, each tradition happily supplying its own separate vision of sacred reality. That era has now passed. It is the distance between convictions that controls more and more of our attention. Maintained separately, the religions create particular insights and wisdom, some having been shaped by long histories of cherished memory and some springing from more recent history. Yet in a world where the religions jostle together, often clash and sometimes cooperate, we are learning that the space between convictions is also a space with its own challenging insight.

DALE CHIHULY IN JERUSALEM

Interreligious Insight was taken by Cetta Kenney at Jerusalem’s Citadel, the Tower of David. The occasion was the exhibition in 2000 of glass sculpture by the extraordinary Dale Chihuly. Entitled “Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem 2000”, the installation took splendid advantage of this spectacular courtyard setting at the Tower.From the time of his experience at Kibbutz Lahav in 1962-63 to the long work on the installation, Chihuly’s relationship with Israel and Jerusalem was developing. In the end, the artist wanted to improve the experience of visitors to a sacred location.
