Upcoming Programs Discuss Confronting Religious Violence, Conflicts in Middle East

Ambassador Frederic C Hof, the former Special Adviser for Transition in Syria at the State Department, speaks during a February program, "The Fight Against ISIS."

At the heels of last month's well-received program "The Fight Against ISIS," which touched on the growing and urgent threat of ISIS and how it can be contained, the 9/11 Memorial Museum presents two March programs. 

On Tuesday, Mar. 22, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, the former Chief Rabbi of the UK and Commonwealth, will explore the complex connection between religion and violence, and the potential to promote peace in a program called “Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence.”

On Wednesday, Mar. 30, the program, “Journey Through a Turbulent World: From Kabul to the White House,” will host Zalmay Khalilzad, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Afghanistan, and Iraq, who had a first-hand role in shaping U.S. foreign policy post 9/11.

Both programs will be followed by a book sale and signing. Program admission is free to museum visitors, but reservations are required prior to the event. Click here to view the full program calendar and to reserve tickets.
