More Than a Joke Symposium

More Than a Joke Symposium – September-April 2019-2020 – Done in Collaboration with our Tri-Faith Partners, this is a weekly educational opportunity to discuss topics from the perspective of all three Abrahamic Faith traditions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Each topic begins with a Tuesday evening panel discussion of the three traditions and is then followed by three Wednesday weekly lunch learning discussions led by the clergy of each faith tradition. This exception to this pattern is the first topic, where we have switched the panel to happen first and have included a welcoming dinner, followed by the three lunch and learn classes. The schedule is as follows:
