Readings from the Roots is a new, historically-sensitive translation of the Revised Common Lectionary with the goal of reducing the potential for anti-Judaism by enriching Christianity through its roots in Judaism. The project, under development, is available for viewing and comments at readingsfromtheroots.bard.edu. The Readings from the Roots translation team will host a two-day conference at the College of the Holy Cross to highlight the project and engage scholars and practitioners, especially Christian clergy.
 
The second day of the conference will feature talks from Taylor Burton-Edwards, Chair, Consultation on Common Texts; Everett Fox, The Allen M. Glick Professor of Judaic and Biblical Studies, Clark University; and Adele Reinhartz, Professor, Department of Classics and Religious Studies, University of Ottawa. 
 
Conference sessions are free and open to the public, but advanced registration for meals is required. Learn more.
