The Groton Interfaith Council is hosting a panel discussion to help us gain a greater understanding of the common ground between three of the world’s great religions–Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Often referred to as the Abrahamic Faiths, these three faith traditions share a common ancestry with the Biblical figure of Abraham held as the founder of all three.
On Sunday, March 9, 2014 a panel of 3 distinguished scholars spoke to the common heritage of these 3 faith traditions. Speaking on the Christian faith is Dr. Joseph T. Kelley, Director of Merrimack College’s Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations. Speaking on Islam is Ms. Celine Ayat Lizzio, currently a Faculty Associate at the Merrimack College Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations. Rabbi Neal D. Gold from Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland, MA speaks about Judaism.
