Rabbi Arthur Schneier, President of the Appeal of Conscience Foundation and senior rabbi at the Park East Synagogue has announced that he will attend the Day of Reflection, Dialogue and Prayer for Peace and Justice in the World at the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI, in Assisi on October 27th.

The gathering will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Peace convened by Pope John Paul II in 1986.  Rabbi Arthur Schneier  hosted  the first ever visit by a Pope to a synagogue in the United States, when Pope Benedict XVI visited Park East synagogue on April 18, 2008.

“In a fractured world, at a time of polarization, division, terrorism, and conflict, it is vital        that religious leaders of major faiths unite for peaceful coexistence. We must inspire to put brakes on man’s inhumanity to man and cultivate man’s humanity to man. Religion must be part of the solution to the existential problems facing mankind and not the source of division,” said Rabbi Arthur Schneier. “In order for our civilization to survive, we must embrace the covenant of the rainbow: respect every color, every culture, and every faith community. In diversity, we must blend together to assure no further destruction of our civilization. I thank Pope Benedict XVI for bringing us together in jointly helping us to build a better world.”

The Appeal of Conscience Foundation (ACF), founded by Rabbi Arthur Schneier in 1965, has worked on behalf of religious freedom and human rights throughout the world. This interfaith coalition of business, religious and foreign policy leaders promotes peace, tolerance and ethnic conflict resolution. It also provides a voice of conscience to protect minorities at a time of increasing ethnic conflict in many regions of the world The ACF has long held that "a crime committed in the name of religion is the greatest crime against religion". The struggle for human rights is ongoing and tolerance can be achieved by encouraging open dialogue and mutual understanding. The ACF is dedicated in reaching this endeavor by rallying religious leaders worldwide to take a stand, using their influence to halt violence and terrorism.

Rabbi Arthur Schneier has served as U.S. Alternate Representative to the U.N. General Assembly and Chairman of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad. In 1998, he was one of three American religious leaders appointed by President Clinton to start the first dialogue on religious freedom with President Jiang Zemin and other top Chinese leaders. In 2001, Rabbi Schneier initiated the Resolution for the Protection of Religious Sites, adopted by the U.N. General Assembly. In 2004 he served as a member of the U.S. delegation to the Stockholm International Forum for the Prevention of Genocide.  In 2005, he was appointed to the High-Level Group, Alliance of Civilizations, by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, a distinguished group whose goal is to bridge divisions between societies exploited by extremists and among societies in which prejudices, misconceptions and polarizations threaten international stability and peaceful relations. In 2008, UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon, appointed Rabbi Arthur Schneier Ambassador to the Alliance of Civilizations.

Ordained by Yeshiva University he is the recipient of eleven honorary doctorates. Born in Vienna, Austria, March 20, 1930, Rabbi Schneier lived under Nazi occupation in Budapest during World War II and arrived in the United States
 in 1947.
