“Torah Study for Christians"
 

with Rev. George Balasko
Co-Sponsored by 
Jewish/Christian Studies Youngstown, OH

The Diocese of Youngstown Office of Religious Education 
is offering 1.5 credit hours for each session 
that participants attend.
 



This Bible education series is an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the Scriptures using video resources from various Scripture scholars. 

Working closely with the biblical text, we will explore the methods and insights of the sages of the Jewish tradition, their love for Torah, their eye for detail, their incisive questions, debates, and creative storytelling (midrash). In this way we will deepen our appreciation of a Torah tradition that is at the core of Jewish life, which formed Jesus as a Jew, and which is the root of our biblical heritage as Christians.
Join us for this fascinating journey of biblical and spiritual enrichment.

Topic of this session will be:
"Jewish beginners in Christian Europe"

Rev. George Balasko is the co-creator of Jewish/Christian Dialogue with the late Rabbi Samuel Meyer of Temple El Emeth in Liberty. Through his many ecumenical programs, Fr. Balasko is well-renowned and highly regarded in the local Jewish community. He is the founder, general editor, and producer of a continuing education program in cooperation with Abba House Communications, and for more than 20 years has served as host and producer of the “Jewish/Christian Dialogue” network television series which airs in several markets around the world. Fr. Balasko resides in the apartments at Villa Maria.

All are welcome. 
Participants need not attend all sessions in the series.
