The Holy Books of Islam and Judaism have many elements in common. There are similarities of which most people are aware, such as belief in one G-d.  But what about how Judaism and Islam view women?  Do they have any mutual beliefs in the afterlife or the Day of Judgment? This session explores the common threads using the Holy Books and sacred writings of both to frame the discussion.  The presenters are members of a small group of Muslims, Jews, and Christians who meet weekly to read the Qu’ran and draw on it to explore the beliefs of their respective religions. Time will be allowed for audience discussion after the presentation.
