Four women, Jewish, Christian and Muslim, share their faith journeys, and what they cherish in their respective traditions. Their presentation clarifies differences among the three faiths, with a hope to inspire the interest and desire for more people to engage in interfaith conversations.
Come join us in the Battell Chapel for this welcome conversation and enjoy some dessert during a question and answer time.
The women are:
Vjosa Qerimi, an Albanian from Kosovo, is a student of Arabic, and a public educator of Islam.
Nancy Latif, a social activist and writer, works to resettle refugees, and is forming her own nonprofit, Refugee Advocate Services.
Eileen Epperson, a hospice chaplain for the Salisbury Visiting Nurses Association and a bereavement counselor, has long been involved with the Parliament of the World’s Religions, and is studying for a Doctorate of Ministry at Hartford Seminary.
Carol Ascher has a doctorate in Anthropology and spent four decades studying equity and prejudice in public education. Her most recent project is an exhibit currently at the Sharon Historical Society: A Chance for Fresh Air: Russian Jewish Immigrants in Ellsworth and Amenia, 1907-1940.
