This two-day conference highlights a new, historically-sensitive translation of the Revised Common Lectionary (beta available at http://readingsfromtheroots.bard.edu) intended to reduce the potential for anti-Judaism by enriching Christianity through its roots in Judaism. The conference will provide an opportunity for clergy to engage with the translation team and will feature talks by Everett Fox, the Allen M. Glick Professor of Judaic and Biblical Studies at Clark University; Adèle Reinhartz, professor of classics and religious studies at the University of Ottawa; and a keynote by Mary C. Boys, vice-president of Academic Affairs and dean and the Skinner & McAlpin Professor of Practical Theology at Union Theological Seminary, on "Seeing Judaism Anew: Jewish Christian Dialogue."
 
Conference sessions are free and open to the public, but advanced registration for meals is required. Learn more.
