Continuing the Conversation around Imams

Have you checked out our Challenges recently? One of our challenges tackling the question 'How can mosques and community centers attract and retain engaged and qualified imams and religious leaders that will help their communities thrive?' is still live offline beyond our IDEA eXchange. Recently, this conversation continued at this year's ISNA 53rd Annual Conference. Whitestone was part of a panel entitled, ''Discussing the current state of Imam Care" which overlaps with this conversation. This panel included Shaykh Mustafa Umar, Dr. Farha Abbasi, and Imam Mansoor Sabree. ISNA will be posting recorded sessions over time, in the meantime, we wanted to share a part of the discussion. Specifically, Dr. Abbasi has been working on research that focuses specifically on the 'Stress and Resilience for Imams and Chaplains' and this research was shared at the conference. Many attendees asked for a copy of the presentation and we have made that available for everyone on this site. If you sign-in, you will find her presentation here under the 'Downloads' header in the right column.
