  • Brotherhood Breakfast - Dr Michael Hallisey, M.D.

    September 17, 2017

    9:00 am-10:00 am

    +More details

    Dr. Hallisey speaks about the master artist Caravaggio and how his life mirrors the intersection of religious turmoil that ended the Medieval era: In the early 1500's, at the heights of the Black Plague that killed half of Europe, Martin Luther "protested" against the excesses of Roman Catholicism and formed the Protestant religious movement. Amidst the religious chaos, the population of Europe was looking for leadership and Catholics then set out to find their Jewish roots in Jerusalem. Dr. Hallisey ties all this history together in a 25 minute PowerPoint presentation that features his new thriller, "The Last Prophet." Everyone is invited to attend this free event. Buffet Breakfast served at 9AM. No need to RSVP For more information contact malleyks@gmail.com Emanuel Synagogue, 160 Mohegan Dr WEST HARTFORD, CT
