Connections: Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas?
Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas? Our panel takes an interfaith look at the holiday season, and the ways we communicate with each other.
Panelists representing Christian, Muslim, and Jewish faiths will present their own religious traditions during an upcoming event, but first they discuss those traditions on Connections. We explore how faiths differ and what they have in common. We also discuss the often-invoked "War on Christmas" and the like. Our guests:
- Muhammad Shafiq, director of the Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue at Nazareth College
- Hava Leipzig Holzhauer, executive director of the Konar Center for Tolerance and Jewish Studies at Nazareth College
- Jimmy Reader, minister with the United Church of Pittsford
