Institute of Jewish-Christian Studies

Jews and Seventh-day Adventists share much of the same spiritual heritage and the same ideals of hope and lifestyle.  Moreover, since the events of Auschwitz during World War II, Jewish-Christian issues have become a relevant part of theological concern.  Therefore, the Institute of Jewish-Christian Studies organizes meetings with world renowned experts, provides a wide range of educational material, and supplements the graduate programs of the Seminary with concentrations in Jewish-Christian studies.  These include courses in Jewish History, rabbinics, and languages.  In all its work, the Institute seeks to train lay persons and ministers to foster constructive relations with Jews in their communities and to develop a global consciousness in all outreach and service.
