Conversations about Spirituality: Health, Illness, and Healing

The Spirituality Committee will host a panel event on "Health, Illness, and Healing: An Interfaith Perspective."  

The panelists are: 

  • Dr. Rashid Muhammad, director of operations for the Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative and volunteer Muslim chaplain at the University of Rochester Interfaith Chapel.
  • Maurice Hopkins, pediatric chaplain at Golisano Children's Hospital and CompassionNet, a community-based pediatric palliative care program. 
  • Rabbi Avi Kilimnick, who serves as Rabbi of Congregation Beth Sholom

Questions to consider for our conversation:

  • What is the connection between health, illness, and healing as understood in your faith tradition?
  • How does your faith tradition deal with strong emotions during illness such as anger, fear, guilt, shame, and loss of control?
  • Does your worldview, your spirituality or your faith tradition offer any insights about healing?

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Debbie Thayer at or (585) 275-8877.
