In case you missed it, a recording of A Voice of Conscience:
Honoring the Life and Legacy of Elie Wiesel is now available to watch
anytime and share.
To honor Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel’s legacy—defending human rights and
combating indifference and intolerance—the Washington National Cathedral
added a stone carving of him to its Human Rights Porch.
The Cathedral and the Museum, in conjunction with the Elie Wiesel
Foundation, hosted leaders across generations in a discussion about Wiesel
and the continuing fight for religious freedom, interfaith understanding,
and respect for our common humanity.
At this time of rising antisemitism, racism, and
group-targeted violence, a reminder of Wiesel’s commitment to the dignity
of all people is both timely and necessary.
