The Congregational Leaders Fellowship is a year-long, cohort-based program for clergy and lay leaders of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities to come together to study and dialogue together to combat religious bias and bigotry through promoting religious understanding, deepening relationships, and cultivating spaces of belonging.
ICJS invites participating congregations to send three leaders each to the cohort: one official and two lay leaders. Up to 15 worshipping communities participate each year, representing a diverse mix of Muslims, Christians, and Jewish communities.
Fellows develop skills, knowledge, and relationships to be advocates of interreligious learning and understanding within their congregations and to connect congregations from across the region.
The program is directed by Alisha Tatem, Th.D., Program Director, Congregations.
