Three Traditions in Conversation

The ICJS and the Greater Olney Interfaith Ministerium (GOyIM) are co-sponsoring a four-week adult education interfaith initiative in the Spring of 2013.


Developed by the ICJS, this program brings together Jews, Christians, and Muslims in response to the religious intolerance and misunderstandings confronting our world. Lectures, small group discussions, and the study of texts sacred to each of the three religious traditions enable participants to discover what their religious communities share, and to explore what is distinctive about them. By reframing the conversation and challenging participants to engage with the wisdom of their religious traditions in light of contemporary life, they come to learn how to celebrate those distinctions as blessings.

Dates: This class ran from April 16 to May 7, 2013. 

Instructors: Dr. Rosann Catalano, Rabbi Ilyse Kramer, Dr. Heather Miller Rubens, and guest instructor Mr. Fuad S. Naeem, Ph.D. candidate, Georgetown University.
