Faith Complex is a show about the kaleidoscopic collision of religion, politics, and art. Program Director Jacques Berlinerblau, Dr. Sarah Fainberg, and PJC students conduct one-on-one interviews with religious and political leaders, journalists, and artists. They examine a variety of issues, including religion’s place in the public sphere, as well as political conflicts that have religious and/or cultural implications. Faith Complex began as a collaborative production of Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Program for Jewish Civilization. It is part of a university-wide effort to make Georgetown a global leader in the interdisciplinary study of religion and the advancement of interfaith understanding. Sit down, make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the show!
