Islam is one of the world's great religions with more than a billion followers around the world. It is a constant topic of discussion in the news and in our culture, but most of us have little to no understanding of the religion. Tahera Ahmad will give us an introduction to the basic beliefs and practices of Islam and talk about what it is like to be a Muslim in America.

Passover & Easter: Two Stories of Redemption

Sunday, April 9, 2017, 9:45-10:45 a.m.

Instructor: Rabbi Brian Stoller

Passover and Easter are, in many ways, Judaism’s and Christianity’s most theologically important holidays. Both tell stories of redemption: the redemption of the Jewish people from Egyptian slavery by God, and the redemption of believers from sin by the death and resurrection of Jesus. Looking at passages from the Torah and from the New Testament, we will examine the meaning of redemption in the Jewish and Christian traditions and apply insights from both faiths to our own lives.
