Crossroads in Jewish-Christian Dialogue – November 2019
CROSSROADS IN JEWISH-CHRISTIAN-MUSLIM DIALOGUE: A THREE-PART MINI-COURSE SERIES
The ICJS mini-courses for our 2019-2020 program year include a three-part series focused on the particularities and histories of each of the sides of the Abrahamic dialogue triangle — Muslim-Christian, Jewish-Christian, and Jewish-Muslim. In each course we will study and discuss case studies and encounters between different Jewish, Christian, and Muslim thinkers and actors in history and the present and the ways those meetings and encounters impacted (or didn’t) their religious communities and traditions. We hope to see how the Muslim, Jewish, and Christian traditions have intersected, interacted, and interdepended for centuries.
Each course will be offered in separate morning (10am to noon) and evening (7pm to 9pm) sessions and will cost $30 for three sessions.
PART TWO: CROSSROADS IN JEWISH-CHRISTIAN DIALOGUE – NOVEMBER 2019
The Jewish and Christian intellectual traditions have grown up together arguing, borrowing, and dialoging about shared scripture, history, and geography. This course will examine encounters between Jewish and Christian thinkers in the ancient, early modern, and modern periods and the lessons we can take for Jewish-Christian dialogue today.
