Spring 2022 Trialogue Series
Beyond Tolerance: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Theologies of Interfaith Hospitality.
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have been in conversation with one another throughout their history. Frequently, the mutual engagement has been marked by arrogance, mischaracterization, to outright hostility. In the modern era, such conflictual attitudes have largely given way to mutual pledges of tolerance. Although clearly better than mutual disdain, is tolerance enough? We believe it isn’t.
Each of our three religious traditions contains rich resources to guide its adherents to go beyond tolerance when engaging ‘the religious other.’ This guidance is distinct in Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. However, the goal is the same: to move far beyond mere tolerance to genuine respect, indeed honor and hospitality, of ‘the religious other.’
The series of three Trialogues will explore the specific teachings undergirding each of the distinctive ‘Theologies of Interfaith Hospitality’ inherent in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Series of three 1-hour sessions online webinar format
In each session, one of the panelists will provide a brief introduction of the distinctive ‘Theology of Interfaith Hospitality’ in their respective religious traditions. This will be followed by a conversation by the three panelists and the three responders as well as questions from the audience. The purpose of the trialogues is to explore both commonalities and differences between the three religious traditions.
