Twittering Across the Faith Line

I am fascinated by the role of new media in the world of multifaith relations.

Take the events of yesterday morning…

Rabbi Ira Stone

Rabbi Ira Stone

At 9 a.m. I received an email from my colleague Rabbi Shai Gluskin that informed me that my teacher, Rabbi Ira Stone, was now posting about the Mishnah on Twitter.

Not yet Twitter literate myself, I repaired to Facebook where I posted a “status update” announcing this news.

An hour later, I received an email from Hussein Rashid, a scholar of Islam in New York City, who will be teaching for RRC next spring. He indicated that he was planning to check out the Mishnah tweets.( twits? twitters?)
