The InterFaith Forum at Yale (IFFY) is a group facilitated by the Chaplain’s Office that welcomes undergraduates committed to meeting weekly over dinner in order to build community across a wide variety of religious and spiritual identities and understandings. IFFY aspires to foster a safe space for respectful dialogue, diverse thought, beneficial confusion, humility, joyful curiosity, laughter, and generous listening. The core value of the group is to nurture conversation where people speak with authority about their own experience and not on religious or spiritual communities.
IFFY seeks to promote religious literacy to the wider Yale community by modeling a willingness to be counter-cultural in how we interact with one another fostering an environment of deep appreciation, respect, and wonder about religious and spiritual traditions.
If you are interested in participating in IFFY, please contact the Associate Chaplain Maytal at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dinner meetings are held on Mondays at 5:30 pm in the Chaplain’s Office Lounge.
