While Samaritans may be most known in the context of Christian scriptures, this ethnoreligious group originated from the ancient Israelite people and still has a surviving population that interacts with Jews, Christians, and Muslims today. This session of Abraham’s Whiteboard will explore the history and current status of Samaritans, their religious teachings, and their connections to other Abrahamic traditions.
Abraham’s Whiteboard is a monthly educational class led by Tri-Faith’s Education Director, Jeremy Fricke, on a wide variety of special topics, historical moments, and world religions. For example, a session could focus on definitions of religion or on non-Abrahamic religions like Hinduism or Buddhism. All Abraham’s Whiteboard sessions are open to all people regardless of background, but will connect the content to Judaism, Christianity, and/or Islam.
