Explore headlining issues through a multi-faith lens as Bishop Mark Beckwith, Imam W. Deen Shareef and Rabbi Matthew Gewirtz lead conversations with special invited guests. The second episode of the half-hour series, broadcast in May 2017, addresses the topic of opioid addiction and other substance abuse that has been a widely-reported crisis in New Jersey and across the country.
