Religious Leaders

ICJS is building a robust interreligious network of clergy, lay leaders, and congregations in Greater Baltimore. We offer ongoing networking and dialogical opportunities for Baltimore-area clergy and religious leaders (chaplains, imams, rabbis, pastors, priests, etc.). We train seminarians, rabbinical students, and other emerging religious leaders in deep interfaith theological engagement with the goal of making Baltimore a model interreligious city.

Clergy and Religious Leaders Programs

We provide opportunities where clergy and religious leaders can build relationships, converse, and learn across faith traditions. From interreligious scripture study to social events to dialogues around religious bigotry and congregational safety, ICJS is providing Baltimore religious leaders with the knowledge and relationships they need to thrive in our interreligious city.

Emerging Religious Leaders (Seminarians and Rabbinical Students)

Once a year, ICJS scholars partner with rabbinical school and seminary professors to offer a one-week intensive course (for credit) in Jewish-Christian Dialogue. This program draws students from all over the country who are the clergy of tomorrow and equips them to navigate the complex relationships among Christians and Jews. Due to Covid-19, the Emerging Religious Leaders program was not held in 2020, but you can learn more about the program here.
