Friday Noon Study Group

Fridays, 12-1 pm

Starting on June 16, we will focus our attention on Understanding Islam.  Jews, Christians, and Muslims struggle to understand one another and know little about each other’s traditions and beliefs.  Our informal discussion group hopes to develop a better understanding of Islamic faith and culture. All are welcome. For more information, contact Jay Jacoby jbjacoby@uncc.edu.

Meet the Midrash

Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 pm
