‘On the Seventh Day’: Interreligious reflections on the Sabbath

ICJS: The Institute for Islamic, Christian, and Jewish Studies

Join us for a discussion on the documentary film Sabbath, which explores the religious, secular, psychological, and sociological dimensions of a weekly day of rest for a “profoundly burned-out world.” The film delves into the history and practice of an ancient concept that is rooted in the biblical story of creation. Dr. Katherine Brown and Dr. Susanna Garfein have been co-teaching a course on the Sabbath at St, Mary’s Ecumenical Institute this semester and they, along with ICJS Jewish Scholar Dr. Benjamin Sax, will lead a conversation about viewers’ insights and impressions. And yes, there will be popcorn!
