Institute for Islamic, Christian & Jewish Studies

The Institute for Islamic, Christian, and Jewish Studies is an independent educational program that seeks to advance inter-religious dialogue and understanding. By shaping a new relationship among Christians, Jews, and Muslims, it addresses the contemporary challenges of religious pluralism in scholarship, teaching, and outreach. It disarms religious hatred by confronting sources of misunderstanding and through the development of resources within its respective communities that inspires it to honor the legitimacy and distinctiveness of other traditions.
