Judaism, Christianity And Islam In The Holy And Unholy City Of Jerusalem

Hosted By: Congregation Kol Ami

Kol Ami presents a series of classes on Israel and the Middle East with Prof. Paul Liptz. In this first class: The City of Peace has also been the city of tears and violence. For thousands of years the three religions have grappled with the tensions between spirituality and territorial goals, with both internal and external conflicts. The dramatic story requires an understanding of the legitimate claims of Jews, Christians and Muslims.
