Calgary’s Ahmadiyya Muslim and Jewish communities are holding their second scholarly dialogue.

“In a gesture of reciprocal hospitality, the second of a two-part Muslim-Jewish dialogue will be held at the Bait-un-Noor Ahmadiyya Mosque” on Wednesday, said Rabbi Shaul Osadchey, of Congregation Beth Tzedec.

“In the first meeting of the Jewish and Ahmaddiyan communities held at Congregation Beth Tzedec, rabbis and Islamic scholars discussed their respective views on the subject of the meaning and relevance of their religion’s holiest scriptures,” he said.

The next dialogue will feature two presentations about the application and relevance of religious law in the lives of adherents of Judaism and Islam.
