Interfaith Dinner Series
The Interfaith Coalition Dinner Series (ICDS) is a series of dinners, each organized and planned by a different religious and philosophical community on Emory's Atlanta campus. These dinners seek to build interreligious community, solidarity, and awareness. This annual series was launched in 2020 by Emory alumni Zoe Robbin and Mariam Hassoun in cooperation with the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life. Please below for a few highlights from past events.
