Providing a space for clergy, educators, scholars, and the public to consider and discuss issues pertaining to our religious traditions and modern life.
The Scripture Forum brings together clergy, educators, scholars, and interested lay people throughout the academic year for study of classical and contemporary texts on topics both central to our religious traditions and relevant to modern society. It provides a space for lively, intense, and informative learning, where participants can grapple with our traditions and consider how they speak to our lives and communities. It includes both presentations and time for small-group study so that participants have a chance to develop their own interpretations and share them with others. One of the virtues of the Scripture Forum is that it provides clergy the opportunity to study with outstanding scholars, to explore cutting-edge issues in the Jewish-Christian encounter, to learn from one another, and to forge ongoing relationships in the process.
