The Academy for Jewish Religion California

By: Editor


As many of you may know, the Academy for Jewish Religion California entered into a consortium with Claremont School of Theology and the Islamic Center of Southern California for the purpose of promoting understanding, collaboration, cooperation, friendship, and harmony between members of the three Abrahimic traditions at the individual, organizational, and governmental level.


As a result of this evolving partnership, a new university was launched in the fall of 2011—Claremont Lincoln University, whose mission is to find common threads among religious and ethical traditions while honoring the distinctiveness of each. Claremont Lincoln University is an ecumenical, interreligious institution that seeks to instill students with the ethical integrity, religious intelligence, and intercultural understanding necessary to become effective leaders in thought and action in the increasingly diverse, multi-religious world of the 21st century. As part of our commitment to these lofty goals the Academy for Jewish Religion California is sponsoring a series of seminars addressing the values and beliefs the three Abrahimic traditions share with each other.


We are delighted to invite you to attend the first seminar in the series entitled: The Children of Abraham: An exploration of the values and beliefs that Jews, Christians, and Muslims share with each other.

The meeting will consist of short presentations by Jerry Campbell, PhD, President of Claremont School of Theology, Jihad Turk, Director of Religious Affairs, The Islamic Center of Southern California, and Interim Dean, Bayan Graduate Program at Claremont Lincoln University, and Rabbi Mel Gottlieb, PhD, President of the Academy for Jewish Religion California. This will be followed by 45 minutes of Questions and Answers.
