Making the Familiar Strange

Making the Familiar Strange is a monthly program sharing perspectives on familiar stories and concepts within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, where participants learn together by reading and discussing texts.

The purpose of Making the Familiar Strange is to create an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that inspires people of different religious and nonreligious backgrounds to read the same text together. Rather than providing answers, creating arguments, or shutting down conversation, Making the Familiar Strange gives attendees an opportunity to investigate and share different perspectives on the same texts.

While not required, the program is best if you have access to the stories, which can be through a physical copy or online copy of a Bible, Tanakh, and/or Quran.
