Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding
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.
