Theme of 16th Annual Morrow-McCombs Memorial Lecture April 8

“What You Need to Know About Me and My Religion: Jewish, Christian and Muslim Responses” will be the topic at the 16th annual Morrow-McCombs Memorial Lecture, Tuesday, April 8, at the First Presbyterian Church of San Bernardino, 1900 North. D Street.

The program, which is free to the public, is sponsored by an endowment at California State University, San Bernardino. It begins at 7:30 p.m., and both lot and nearby street parking are available.

Rabbi Douglas Kohn of Temple Emanu El, San Bernardino, will present the essentials of his faith. He began his service at the synagogue in 2001, coming to San Bernardino from Illinois.

Rev. James Huffstutler, pastor of First Presbyterian, will present the Christian perspective. Yahya Abdul Rahman, former chair, Islamic Shura Council of Southern California and an Imam, will speak to what he considers the essentials of his faith.

CSUSB President Albert Karnig will introduce and moderate the discussion, which will allow time for questions at the end.

The Morrow-McCombs lecture was established by an endowment that honors the late former Rialto mayor Ray McCombs and his friend, the late Lilian Taylor Morrow, who cared intensely about Jewish-Christian dialog.

The committee that oversees the lectureship added Islamic dialog to the charge after the events of September Sept. 11, 2001.
