Rabbi David Rosen was one of a triumvirate of Jewish, Muslim and Christian clergymen recognized by Search for Common Ground, a group that promotes reconciliation and conflict resolution.

Jointly receiving the group’s interfaith award were Rosen, the international director of interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee; Lord George Carey of Clifton, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican church; and Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, which is behind the controversial initiative to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks with an interfaith center near the World Trade Center in Manhattan.

Among other honorees at the Nov. 8 event in Washington D.C. was the late Ambassador Christopher Stevens, killed Sept. 11 in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Previous recipients of the Common Ground Awards include Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf; former U.S. President Jimmy Carter; Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a leader in the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa; boxer Muhammad Ali; and Sesame Workshop, the children’s programmer.
