The Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies


Feb 27, 2018

Speaker: Rabbi Reuven Hammer

Program Series: Joshua O. Haberman Distinguished Speaker Series

Location: Tifereth Israel Congregation, Washington, DC 

Date: November 16 

Since the rise of Christianity, the God of Judaism has often been depicted as a God of vengeance, while the God of Christianity is portrayed as the God of love. Rabbi Hammer discusses the Jewish and Christian concepts of God, and shows the error in describing the two religions' concepts of God as opposites in this manner.
