An interfaith conversation exploring Judaism, Catholicism and Islam will be 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sept. 28 in Betzler Auditorium at Walsh University, 2020 E. Maple St., North Canton.

The dialogue will examine how commitment to a faith tradition shapes experiences in everyday life; how people interact with members of other faith groups; and whether it is possible for people of different faith groups and cultures to overcome differences and generate meaningful dialogue. The conversation will include three scholars — Rabbi Joan Friedman, representing the Jewish perspective; Chris Seeman, representing the Christian view and Zeki Saritoprak, representing the Muslim perspective.

An informal Sabbath service will begin at 9 a.m.

The event, which is free to the public, is part of a series of interfaith conversations. Upcoming discussions include Women and Faith on Oct. 7 and Faith and Food on Nov. 14.

Sessions are eligible for credit in the Walsh Lifelong Learning Academy and are recognized by the Catholic dioceses of Youngstown and Cleveland for religious education credit.

The university is an independent Catholic liberal arts and sciences institution with more the 3,000 students from 15 states and 24 countries.
