Elmhurst U. to Host Virtual Lecture ‘The Religious Landscape of Chicago’ on Oct. 28

October 15, 2020 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

Established more than 30 years ago, the Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago works to create a climate of better interfaith understanding and cooperation.

The Council’s members include leaders from nearly every major religious tradition in the Chicago region, and speak with a unified moral voice on issues of the day, including the COVID-19 pandemic, violence and racial injustice.

Nisan Chavkin, executive director of the Council, will present the lecture The Religious Landscape of Chicago on Oct. 28 in a virtual format.

The organization began when a group of Chicago religious leaders recognized the growing need to understand cultural and religious differences, and to learn how to work with one another. When members of the Council meet, they strive to foster greater understanding by sharing the insights of the various religious faiths on issues affecting the common good.

The virtual lecture The Religious Landscape of Chicago will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Admission is free but reservations are required; an access link to the event will be provided closer to the event date. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite.
