Encounter and dialogue are the beginning of a new relationship.  Study and shared study can enrich and strengthen both the relationship and the individuals in it.  That's what the annual minicourse is about.  Four- to six-week series, one evening each week, focus on topics of shared interest to Jews and Christians.  Recent topics have included:

2018: Understanding Otherness Within Religious Communities - President Suleyman Eris, Rabbi Dr. Elsie Stern, Dr. Randall Zachman.
