MCOL Religious Literacy 06-28-16.00_02_55_11.Still001When 37 Montgomery County Public School teachers return to their classrooms they will know much more about the religious beliefs and practices of people in our communities. They are taking part in a pilot program designed to promote religious literacy.

Walter Johnson High School teacher Christopher Murray organized the five-day program with Steven Adleberg, the Education Outreach Director for the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.

The seminars at Temple Beth Ami and other faith centers could help teachers guide their students toward a better understanding of the diverse religions and cultures that exist in the county, our nation and the world.  Phyllis Armstrong reporting from Rockville for MyMCMedia.
