Schmooze with the Jews
Welcome to March and to Spring again. I encourage everyone to check out Religious Appreciation Week this week. There are some great events. Thursday's program featuring Rabbi Greenberg should be extremely interesting.
Religious Appreciation Week
Have questions about the different religions on campus? Check out this schedule of events:
Monday, Tuesday March 6, 7
11am - 1pm Religious Fair
Learn about differences between the various faith based groups on campus
Monday, March 6
6pm, Drum Circle
The spirituality of the drum is the oldest gathering rite we know of in history. Come and experience this unique way of reaching your inner self within the context of a drumming community. It is fun, religious, spiritual, entertaining and captivating. Take a chance and explore your inner rhythm.
Tuesday, March 7
8pm, Women in Religion Panel
Have you ever wondered what the role women play in the different faiths? Have you ever been confused about the style of dress that women of different faiths wear or why they wear it? Have you ever been conflicted about the status of gender equality in the different faiths?
Come hear women of faith talk about their views from their own perspectives. We will have a panel made up of Towson faculty, staff, and students talk about how they form their own identities as women of faith.
