From 2013 to 2019, ICJS, in partnership with the Washington Theological Consortium, hosted an annual Emerging Religious Leaders Course to advance Jewish-Christian understanding amongst rising Jewish and Christian clergy. Beginning in 2022, ERLI will alternate the Jewish-Christian (odd years) and Muslim-Christian (even years) dialogue programs.
This retreat has been one of the most formative pieces of my first year of seminary. There is a piece of my personal vision and purpose that is easy for me to lose sight of when in my own religious bubble and language. Broadening my experience to interact with emerging leaders in different faith traditions brought me back to some of the highest sense of my calling.
