The Center for Muslim-Jewish Engagement, a Partnership between HUC-JIR, the Omar Ibn Al Khattab Foundation, and USC's Center for Religion and Civic Culture, is launching this year's Muslim-Jewish Text Study program. After a successful pilot with a cohort of 11 Muslims and 11 Jews in 2008-2009, CMJE is expanding the program for 2010-2011. With scholars from both traditions, participants will study sacred texts in 10 sessions over the course of 5 months on topics such as "The Other," "Prophecy," "Gender," and "Poverty." For further information, please contact Sarah Bassin, 5th-year rabbinical student at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit CMJE's website, www.usc.edu/cmje, for the application. Applications are due October 1st.
