Join us at this wonderful seminar discussing, “Three Faiths, One Spirit, Deepening Shared Values.”

We will have an interfaith dialogue with Dr. Alan Kolp, Faith and Life Professor at Baldwin Wallace University; Rabbi Enid Lader, Beth Israel - The West Temple, Cleveland; and Dr. Carl Sharif El-Tobgui, Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Brandeis University. A question and answer session will follow the seminar.

The Mary Anne & Richard Cavicchi Christian Education Seminar will be held from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm in Beacon Hall.

Also, at 3:00pm, in the Sanctuary, the Case Western Reserve University Klezmer Music Ensemble will perform, allowing you to experience the sounds of the shtetl (Jewish village), the synagogue, and the soulful and jubilant Jewish wedding.
