CRCC Sugerman 2017

In August 2012, a neo-Nazi gunman opened fire on the Oak Creek, Wisconsin Sikh temple, killing temple president Satwant Singh Kaleka and five other congregants. Serve 2 Unite founder Pardeep Kaleka, son of the slain temple president, and Arno Michaelis, Serve 2 Unite educator and former white supremacist, spoke frankly about forgiveness, redemption and efforts to reach students nationwide with their message of overcoming hatred.

The Shirley Sugerman Interfaith Forum was established in 1991 and endowed by Dr. Shirley Sugerman G’70, Drew trustee emerita, and other donors. The forum provides a venue for interdisciplinary exchanges between and among scholars, teachers, religious leaders and members of the larger community interested in exploring issues of interfaith understanding, the diversity of religiously based ethical perspectives and the political, social and cultural conflicts caused by the clash of religious traditions.
