Rabbi Judy Schindler Sklut Professor of Jewish Studies, in partnership with Arzu Kaya-Uranli
Wednesday afternoons, 12:15-1:45 pm
February 6 through April 10 (No class on March 20 and April 3)
Cost: $150

In this city of Charlotte with almost 1000 places of worship, we are surrounded by neighbors who hold in their hands a variety of sacred scriptures.  Those who are Muslim read the Hebrew Bible differently than Christians or Jews. Christians and Jews may never open a Koran.  In this course, we will compare and contrast the portrayal of personalities and pertinent topics in the Hebrew Bible and the Koran from Abraham to Moses, from fast to feasts, from prayer to prophecy.  

 Arzu Kaya-Uranli is a broadcaster, religious studies professor and interfaith activist. She received her M.A. in Religious Studies from Hartford University and is an adjunct professor at Winthrop University
