When Trinity Health of New England acquired a heritage version of the St. John’s Bible, it sent one volume to Waterbury to St. Mary’s Hospital. That volume was the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, and the foundational text for all three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. As such, Rabbi Eric Polokoff, Iman Aga Gazi, and Monseigneur Joseph Donnelly were invited to a ceremony at the hospital to welcome the text. The conversation among the three was so energetic and enlightening that the trio believed they should expand their conversation, open it to the public, and take it on the road. They brought that conversation to Taft November 7.
