This year, the Global Day will be on the theme of "Heroes and Villains, Saints and Fools: The People in the Book."  The lead characters will include Abraham, Moses, Deborah, Balaam.  The Global Day includes 24 hours of online video presentations in different languages, from top scholars and teachers around the world; these will also be available after the day itself.
