Please note that our current and past presenters do not necessarily share the same theological, doctrinal, or methodological perspectives, and their participation is not an endorsement of the Kesher Forum, the host church, or any of the organizations its participants are affiliated with. We don't expect them to. But we all agree that it is possible to learn from and have respectful dialogue with people we may disagree with and they with us.

Who is wise? One who learns from all people.

That is the spirit of the Kesher Forum.
