Imam Yahya Hendi, Muslim Chaplaincy Director, Georgetown University
Recorded Feb. 7, 2013, in Mayser Gymnasium.
This is Multi-faith Week at F&M and we are celebrating the variety of religious expression on our campus and also asking why this can be so challenging at F&M and in the world in which we live.
Imam Yahya Hendi is the Muslim Chaplaincy Director at Georgetown University, the first American University to hire a full-time Muslim chaplain. Imam Hendi is also the Imam of the Islamic Society of Frederick, Frederick, MD and is the Muslim Chaplain at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. He is the founder and Secretary General of Clergy Beyond Borders, and the founder and president of the newly founded organization, Imams for Universe, Dignity, Human Rights and Dialogue.
In May 2002, Imam Hendi was chosen by Hartford Seminary to receive its annual “James Gettemy Significant Ministry Award” for his dedication to his ministry and for his work to promote peace building between people of different religions.
This event is open to the public.
