RABBI ON THE GANGES: Judaism & Hinduism in Conversation with Visiting Scholar Rabbi Alan Brill, Ph.D.

Wednesday, May 17 • 7:30-9pm @ Makom – 402 College St • Suggested contribution $10-$20 • Registration required  

Hinduism and Judaism tend to misunderstand each other and their living realities. Exploring meditation, rituals, purity, and text study, we’ll discover the importance of asking the proper questions and using an appropriate lens. That which is first seen as completely foreign can be appreciated on its own terms, in turn creating a space for a shared spiritual language of understanding.

Rabbi Alan Brill is the Chair for Jewish-Christian Studies at Seton Hall University, where he teaches Jewish studies in the graduate program. Professor Brill is the author of He is the author of Thinking God: The Mysticism of Rabbi Zadok of Lublin (2002), Judaism and Other Religions: Models Of Understanding (2010), and Judaism and World Religions (2012), and is active in the Jewish interfaith encounter with Catholics, Muslims, and Hindus.
