Details

Date:
February 23, 2017
Time:
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Event Category:

Join Trusteeship member Rabbi Emerita Laura Geller along with Ruqayya Khan (a specialist in the early Koran and a professor of Islamic Studies at Claremont Graduate University) and Tammi Schneider (Professor of Religion & Dean of the School of Arts & Humanities at Claremont Graduate University) as we explore The Legacy Of Our Shared Biblical Grandmothers in all religions.

This will be a learning evening where we’ll read a short text from the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament about Hagar in which we will discuss how this line of text influences our lives today, most notably, the role of working women, how does one treat immigrants/foreigners, and how do women treat each other.

This will be a true thinking and learning experience you will not want to miss.

Meeting at Maggiano’s at The Grove from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

“Imagine an enriching experience and rare opportunity to meet, learn from, and share time with a college president, a top TV or movie producer, an artist, an author, a politician, a business or philanthropic leader, to name a few. That’s the magic of The Trusteeship. Friendships and support when life has dealt you a setback are added — precious gifts.”
