Featuring Amal Alexander from the American Muslim Institute!
As we continue through Abrahamic stories, we will be discussing Hagar from multiple perspectives. Amal will provide some background on Muslim perspectives on Hagar and we will have discussion on Jewish and Christian perspectives as well.
Making the Familiar Strange is an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that inspires people of different religious and nonreligious backgrounds to read the same text together. Rather than providing answers, creating arguments, or shutting down conversation, Making the Familiar Strange gives attendees an opportunity to investigate and share different perspectives on the same texts.
While not required, the program is best if you have access to the texts in question, which can be a physical copy or online copy of a Bible, Tanakh, Quran, or other text that addresses the stories in the biblical book of Genesis.
