Rabbinic Students Needed for Seminarian Program on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

A very unique program is recruiting a few more rabbinic students near New York (especially Orthodox, Reform or Reconstructionist) for an intensive, interfaith exploration of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with Christian seminarians. The program is a joint project of the Auburn Theological Seminary and the American Jewish Committee.

Ever wondered what Christians really think about Israel? Ever thought about how to engage the regional conflict constructively across faith lines? This intensive and life-changing program features a series of study and dialogue sessions followed by a 9-day travel encounter to Israel and the Palestinian Territories in January 2012. Auburn Seminary and the American Jewish Committee (NY Chapter) jointly run the program, which has openings for a few more rabbinic students. All program costs, including travel and accommodations, are covered in exchange for a $400 program fee (waived for those with financial difficulty). Application and details are available online and are due ASAP.

  1. As Executive Director of JDeadEnd, the political home of pro-Israel in pro-pieces Americans I welcome this initiative by the leading seminary in the fast-shrinking Presbyterian Church (USA).
    As George Soros once said, ‘This goulash needs more paprika’.

  2. As a former CJ participant, I found this a powerful program and would definitely recommend it. Like anything else, it is not perfect, but as a way to see Israel from a new and different perspective, I think it is priceless. I learned as much from hearing different Jewish perspectives as I did from the Christian participants.
