  • Rabbi Fred Morgan
  • Associate Prof. Adam Cooper

As a series of three Thursday evening sessions, each session will focus on one faith tradition with the speaker offering an approach to reading and interpreting their sacred texts followed by Q&A.

The aim is to deepen our knowledge and appreciation of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim texts so we gain more of an understanding of the connection with people from the Abrahamic faiths and can engage more fully in dialogue with each other.
