FIRST IN SERIES ON INTERFAITH STUDIES IS SUNDAY AT PERRY LIBRARY

Old Dominion University's Perry Library will host a free, Interfaith Studies Reading Group, led by the Rev. Steven Jolly and Rabbi Lawrence Forman, on May 7 and May 14. All of the sessions will be from 2 - 4 p.m. in room 151 at the Library. They are open to the public.

The series will explore anthropologist Richard Antoun's "Understanding Fundamentalism: Christian, Islamic and Jewish Movements," which compares the growth of fundamentalism in the three monotheistic faiths.

Jolly, who received a master of divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and a doctorate from North Carolina State University, is the pastor of Freemason Street Baptist Church in Norfolk.

Forman, the director of ODU's Institute for Jewish Studies and Interfaith, also serves as faculty adviser for the university's Better Understanding Club, an organization devoted to furthering dialogue between various cultures and faiths.

For more information contact Fern McDougal at 683-4141 or fmcdouga@odu.edu.

Parking is available in the lot in front of the library, which is located on 45th street just west of Hampton Blvd.
