Celebrating Inclusive Religious Freedom for our Diverse Nation
Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush
Interfaith Scholar Weekend 2023 will be held March 10-12. Our speaker will be the Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, president and CEO of Interfaith Alliance. An ordained Baptist minister, Rev. Raushenbush is a longtime leader in the interfaith movement working to protect an inclusive vision of religious freedom for people of all faiths and none.
As the great-grandson of the first Jewish Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis and great-grandson of Baptist theologian Walter Rauschenbusch, a key figure in the Social Gospel movement, Rev. Raushenbush’s commitment to interfaith advocacy comes in part from his own interfaith background.
