NEW YORK (Jul. 9)
Three summer “ecumenical institutes” are currently underway in the Midwestern which faculty members of church-related schools, universities and seminaries are taking graduate-level study with Jewish scholars.
The institutes are being held at Dubuque, Iowa; Wheeling, W.Va.; and St. Meinrad, Ind., under the auspices of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith in cooperation with the Association of Theological Faculties of Iowa, the Wheeling College Institute of Jewish Studies and the St. Meinrad Seminary and the American Benedictine Academy in Indiana.
Participants in the institutes study contemporary Jewish theology, Jewish history, the Jewish Bible, the contemporary Jewish community and the history of Jewish-Christian relations.
