LENTEN LECTURES 2019
A Nice Jewish Boy: Jesus in his religious and social context
Presented by Rabbi Sheryl Nosan across three Tuesdays: 19 March, 26 March. 2 April
Over three sessions, Rabbi Sheryl will assist people to understand the ‘Jewishness’ of Jesus. She will invite people of any faith or worldview to deepen their appreciation of Jesus and engage in interfaith dialogue. With good humour, storytelling, and a rich knowledge of Jewish faith and culture, participants will be exposed to new facets of Jesus’ teaching and witness. There will also be an opportunity to ‘ask the Rabbi’ any of those burning questions about Judaism!
