What: "A Religious Jew's Journey into Christianity and Islam: Is reconciliation possible?"

Where: Swift 106

When: Monday, November 10 at 7:00pm

Yossi Klein Halevi, an Israeli journalist for the Jerusalem Post and the New Republic, has set out to become a "citizen of Jerusalem," a task which requires considering the perspectives of not only his Jewish neighbors, but those who are Christian and Muslim as well. As he wrote in his recent book At the Entrance to the Garden of Eden, "The three monotheistic people all loved this land for the same reason: This was the place where heaven and earth mingled." In the spirit of this project, Mr. Klein Halevi sought to understand the Christian and Muslim faiths.

On Monday, November 10 at 7:00 Mr. Klein Halevi will join the Newberger Hillel Center and the Initiative for Israel on Illinois Campuses, as well as Rockefeller Chapel, the department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and the Jewish/Muslim Dialog in a discussion entitled "A Religious Jew's Journey into Christianity and Islam: Is reconciliation possible?" The event is free and open to the public.
