Challenge 2.0

Revealing the truth and offering clarity in misconception, Challenge 2.0 connects and strengthens local communities. We facilitate conversations about anti-semitism, interfaith, Islamophobia, cultural racism, religious oppression, and violence against faith-based communities.

Challenge 2.0 is produced in partnership with Weigle Broadcasting and Seattle Community Cable TV. It was recreated in 2017 based on the original Challenge show started by Rabbi Raphael Levine and Father William Treacy.

The program is hosted by Executive Producer Jeff Renner. Produced by Tom Buttersworth and John Sharify. Cameras and Audio by Rich McAdams, Tom Buttersworth and Dean Cuccia. Ean Olsen Is the Production Assistant.
