In the Beginning: Exploring Genesis 1-11
For the past 20 years, the Interfaith Bible Study has successfully undertaken a complete cycle of exploring a wide selection of biblical texts through the eyes of very diverse scholars and religious leaders in our community. This year, we have decided that it is time to restart that cycle by returning to the text from our first season in 1996. That year we were influenced by Bill Moyer’s popular PBS series involving the exploration of the Book of Genesis. Now we revisit this text with the hope of gaining new insights that will continue to deepen our Christian/Jewish dialogue.
The Tower of Babel: Genesis 11:1-9
Speakers: Rev. Denise Yarbrough (Director, Religious and Spiritual Life, University of
Rochester) and Rabbi Alan Katz (Temple Sinai)
