The Jewish-Islamic Dialogue Society of Washington presents:

Abraham/Ibrahim: Our Common Father

Host: Hill Havurah, Capitol Hill’s Jewish Congregation

Where: Lutheran Church of the Reformation, 212 E Capitol St., N.E., Washington, D.C.

When: Sunday, Feb. 25th, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Join us as we kick off JIDS’s 10th year of dialogues with a tribute to the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. For years, we have spoken about how Jews and Muslims are truly “first cousins.” Now, for the first time, JIDS is devoting a full session to what makes our common father so inspiring. We’ll explore how stories about Abraham/Ibrahim can help us appreciate both what unifies Judaism and Islam and what has divided us. So come and challenge your thinking about our father and, even more importantly, rekindle your love for all he stands for. Speakers will include: Rabbi David Shneyer, spiritual leader of the Am Kolel and Kehila Chadasha Jewish Communities, Past Pres. of the Assoc. of Rabbis and Cantors for Jewish Renewal Daniel Spiro, author of three books on religion and philosophy; president of JIDS and Coordinator of the Washington Spinoza Society (www.danielspiro.com). Haytham Younis, co-founder of JIDS, Muslim prison chaplain, frequent public lecturer about Islam, studied Arabic and Islamic Law at the Univ. of Madinah Imam Rasoul Naghavi , author of three books on Shiite Jurisprudence and Fatwas and a Visiting Researcher at Georgetown University.
