Dr. Landau in Manhattan with his Nigerian colleagues from the Tanenbaum Peacemakers in Action Network, Pastor James Movel Wuye and Imam Muhammad Nurayn Ashafa
Our journey onto the global stage started when we met Yehezkel in 2004 at a Tanenbaum Peacemakers in Action retreat in Amman, Jordan, where he invited us to participate in a week-long course on the Abrahamic faiths that he directed at Hartford Seminary. In Hartford we met Yehezkel’s friend, Bryan Hamlin of Initiatives of Change (IofC), who invited us to an international, interfaith conference in Caux, Switzerland. Today our story is known throughout the world, largely thanks to the IofC-produced film, “The Imam and the Pastor.” In December of 2010, ahead of national elections in Nigeria that were threatened by violence, Yehezkel and two other Tanenbaum Peacemakers, Fr. Ivo Markovic and Azhar Hussein, spent a week with us in Abuja, Jos, and Kaduna. Yehezkel added a valuable Jewish and interfaith perspective in meetings with Nigerian Christian and Muslim leaders and in national television interviews. He is our Jewish spiritual brother, a cherished friend, and a dedicated peacebuilder.
