Her teaching and research continues to explore and emphasize the Israeli and Palestinian conflict as one of the most misunderstood issues in American religious life. She focus on the study of comparative revelation in world religions traditions that allows for artistic expression to stand as a foundation for interfaith communication and dialogue.
