Jacob and Esau, Isaac and Ishmael: The Future of Jewish-Christian and Jewish-Muslim Relations
February 19, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
The Holocaust and the State of Israel transformed the traditional paradigms of Jews’ Relations with non-Jews. Jacob & Esau, typologically Jews and Christians and traditionally enemies, have reconciled. Isaac & Yishmael, typologically Jews and Muslims and traditionally less hostile, have grown apart. This talk provides a panoramic overview of the changing dynamics of inclusion and inter-faith relations, viewed from a Jewish perspective. Malachi Haim Hacohen (Ph.D., Columbia) is Bass Fellow, Associate Professor of History, Political Science and Religion, as well as Slavic, German and Jewish Studies at Duke University.
