Speaker: Dr. Reuven Firestone, Regenstein Professor in Medieval Judaism & Islam, Hebrew Union College (HUC)/Los Angeles Today, it often seems as if relations between Muslims & Jews are dominated by fear, resentment, & ignorance. Some Muslims believe that Jews are taught to abhor anyone not Jewish. Some Jews claim that Muslims are hostile to Jews because the Qur'an teaches Jew hatred & is inherently antisemitic. Delve into a thorough investigation of how the Qu'ran portrays Jews through text study & discussion. A discussion will follow the program. This program is part of HUC Connect programs.
