The Academy for Judaic, Christian, and Islamic Studies is dedicated to building bridges of understanding, mutual respect, and cooperation between Jews, Christians, and Muslims. It provides interreligious educational programs for universities, colleges, religious congregations, and other interested groups, in an effort to reduce misconceptions and to promote mutual respect and appreciation among these three Abrahamic Faiths who share a common religious heritage. Each program places a strong emphasis on experiential learning through personal encounters and open exchanges between all participants. The guiding principle is to encounter the religious ‘other’ in a spirit of hospitality with both honesty and intellectual humility.
The Academy offers college courses on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as interrelated religious traditions, as well as a variety of programs and events open to the public.
