Dates: Wednesdays: February 17, March 3, and March 17
Time: 7:30 - 8:45 pm EST (4 - 5:45 pm PST)
Led by: Rabbi Deb Smith, Sister Eleanor Francis, and Dr. Shabiha Sheikh
Description: Join ALEPH for our brand new Yad b' Yad Abrahamic Faiths Dialogue Series, an opportunity for immersive, interfaith learning at the intersection of the Abrahamic traditions. This program is perfect for curious seekers hoping to expand their knowledge of Judaism's sister faiths and build relationships with Christians and Muslims.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn from a dynamic interfaith trio with a deep shared history: Rabbi Debra Smith (Reb Deb), Sister Eleanor Francis, and Dr. Shabiha Sheikh have known each other over many years, building relationships with each other through teaching, studying, sharing meals, praying, and sharing family stories with each other. In this series, they will share the fruits of many years of dialogue and insight. Each dialogue session will be followed by an open Q + A. Register today!
Session One: Compassion in Our Traditions - Compassion is a core teaching in each of our value systems. Explore key texts and stories teaching compassion in each of our faiths.
Session Two: Charity, Tzedakah and Zakat in Our Traditions - Our traditions place strong emphasis on helping those less fortunate. Where do these values come from and what form does this obligation take in helping us create a more just society?
Session Three: Prayer in Our Traditions - Our three faiths place and emphasis on praising and thanking G-d. We'll explore these prayers of thanks and praise as well as a range of different types of prayers from a three faith's perspective.
