Session 1: (11 PM - 12 AM)
A Logical Approach to Sinai: The balance between faith and intellect

All worlds religions claim to possess truth and that they are superior to all other religions. In this session will explore the Jewish values of critical thinking, identify what differentiates Judaism from other religions, and uncover how a Jew can ascertain whether Judaism is the one true religion. 

Session 2: (12:15 AM - 1:15 AM)
The Domino Effect: Judaism and Christianity and the Parting of the Ways

Many people know that the religion that became Christianity originally began as a movement within Judaism. What is less well understood is how this transformation transpired. This presentation examines the evolution of Christianity's departure from Judaism that led to a total unraveling of Christianity from its Jewish roots.

Session 3: (1:30 AM - 2:30 AM)
Sibling Rivalry: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam 

In this session, we will explore how Christianity and Islam each interpret the stories in Bereshit to further their narrative, and bring legitimacy their claims to being the rightful heir to the legacy of Abraham.  

Session 4: (2:45 AM - 3:45 AM)
Wanted: the Jewish Messiah?

Does the Bible provide a clear template for who the Messiah will be and what he will do? How do we know if this template is trustworthy? This session provides refreshing insights into this fascinating issue and examines how Christianity developed a distorted Messianic vision.
