LINCROFT, NJ (Oct. 27, 2014) – The popular team of Dr. Christopher Bellitto and Rabbi Brooks Susman will present “Jews and Christians, Words and Deeds” on Thursday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft.
The pre-holiday talk will examine the origins and evolution of the scriptures that form the basis of many western religious beliefs. With their characteristic blend of humor and scholarly discussion, the “God Squad” will also review Jewish and Christian relations since WWI. Light lunch will be served.
Bellitto, a Kean University history professor, has appeared on CNN, the History Channel and other national media outlets as an expert on church history and Catholicism. Susman is a Brookdale humanities instructor and the founding rabbi of Congregation Kol Am in Freehold.
For nearly ten years, the pair has promoted “ecumenism through education” and examined the similarities and differences between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
“We are living in a age of polarization,” said Bellitto. “What Brooks and I are trying to do is close the gap.”
Tickets for the presentation are $55. To register or learn more call 732-224-2315 or click here.
