With The Interfaith Amigos
Authors, Spiritual Leaders, Dedicated to Supporting a More Effective Interfaith Dialogue
Pastor Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon and Imam Jamal Rahman — now known as the Interfaith Amigos — started working together after 9/11. Since then, they have brought their unique blend of spiritual wisdom, warmth, and humor to audiences in the US, Canada, Israel-Palestine and Japan. Their work is dedicated to supporting more effective interfaith dialogue that can bring greater collaboration to the major social and economic issues of our time.
Their first book, Getting to the Heart of Interfaith (2009), brought the Interfaith Amigos international attention, including coverage by the New York Times, CBS News, and various NPR programs. Their second book, Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith, was published in November 2011.
Pastor Don is former Minister and Head of Staff at University Congregational United Church of Christ in Seattle. Rabbi Ted, founder of meditative synagogues in Los Angeles and Seattle, is author of A Journey of Awakening: Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tree of Life and co-author of Judaism For Dummies. Imam Jamal, a Muslim Sufi minister and co-founder of Seattle's Interfaith Community Church, is author of The Fragrance of Faith: The Enlightened Heart of Islam and Out of Darkness into Light: Spiritual Guidance in the Quran with Reflections from Jewish and Christian Sources.
