Speaker: Professor David Kraemer

Program Series: Rabbi Joshua O. Haberman Distinguished Speaker Series 

Location: B'nai Israel Congregation, Rockville, MD

Date: October 7, 2018

In many respects, Islam is Judaism's closest "relative." It is a religion of law, based upon both Judaism and other inherited near eastern traditions. Professor David Kraemer, a prolific author and commentator who oversees the most extensive collection of rare and contemporary Judaica in the Western Hemisphere, will reveal similarities that exist between these two Abrahamic faiths. Professor Kraemer will share how studying parallels between Islam and Judaism can help us gain a better understanding of Jewish concepts and beliefs.
