Rabbi who served as U.S. ambassador for religious freedoms to speak at St. Leo’s

The public is invited to a free presentation on religious freedom issues globally – including the persecution of religious minorities – from the nation’s former top diplomat on religious freedom issues, Rabbi David Saperstein.

The rabbi will speak from 1-3 p.m., Thursday, March 8, at the Saint Leo Abbey Church, 33701 SR 52, St. Leo.

The Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies is sponsoring Rabbi’s Saperstein’s talk.

From 2015-17, Rabbi Saperstein was the U.S. Ambassador-at- Large for International Religious Freedom, the first non-Christian to hold that post. He is senior advisor to the Union of Reform Judaism for policy and strategy and director emeritus of its Religious Action Center, where he served for more than 30 years.

To reserve seating, contact Megan Orendorf by email, jennifer.orendorf@saintleo.edu, or call (352) 588-8401.

The mission of the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic- Jewish Studies is to build mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation among different faiths by providing opportunities for interfaith education and dialogue.
