What Does God Want and Who Speaks for God?

Tuesday Evenings
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Temple Beth El

Religious leaders of different faiths offer their points of view. The event is free and
open to the community.

This Series is offered at no cost to the public by the Temple Beth El Comparative Religion Committee. We are grateful for the Ted and M.E. Hessberg Endowment which supports community outreach programs. The annual Comparative Religion Series was established 21 years ago with the intent to educate our community, promote understanding and respect for all faiths, and reveal the commonalities in our differences.
