Leo Baeck College has a proud tradition of Interfaith dialogue and education. It led the way over four decades ago, in bringing young Jews, Christians and Muslims together for a week-long conference in Germany, and continues to support these annual conferences today. The College is also a partner in an annual Jewish Christian Bible Week.
We work with partner bodies and institutions such as the Council of Christians and Jews, the Three Faiths Forum, the Muslim College and the An Nisa Society to promote interfaith opportunities for rabbinic students and trainee clergy in other faiths to meet and talk together and to build sustainable relationships for the future.
The formal academic programme for first year rabbinic students includes a semester learning about the other major faiths found in the UK with people from those faiths.
