Understanding Judaism through the Lens of Islam

Date: Jun 04, 2017 - Jun 04, 2017

Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Location: Chicago Area


With Dr. David C. Kraemer, Joseph J. and Dora Abbell Librarian and Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics

Professor Kraemer will uncover the many similarities that exist between Judaism and Islam, in many respects its closest “sibling,” being a religion of law based both upon Judaism and other inherited near eastern traditions. By studying examples of Islamic parallels with Judaism, we will gain a better understanding of Jewish concepts and beliefs.
