“The fact that I have been the scholar far more frequently — nine times since its inception in 1944 — than anyone else speaks to my strong commitment to interfaith understanding, harmony and affirmation.”
Lecture 1: “Why Abraham?” Why does God choose this individual to restructure our traditional lifestyle’ and introduce to us an innovative way in which to interact with the Creator.
Lecture 2: “Finding Ourselves in The Abraham Stories.” What do the key Abraham narratives teach that can help each of us become better human beings and spiritual leaders?
