The Abrahamic Faiths

Three religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—are considered “Abrahamic” because their adherents consider their faiths to be derived from the figure of Abraham, described in both the Bible and the Quran as the founder of monotheism. The three faiths share much in common, including belief in One God, similar ethical teachings, and origins in the Middle East. Nonetheless, their histories have been marked at least as much by conflict as by peaceful coexistence. In the panel, adherents of these three faiths will discuss their similarities and differences and show how many Jews, Christians, and Muslims are now working towards a common vision of peace and cooperation.

Throughout the event the panelists will entertain questions and have a discussion with the audience.
