This report surveys courses, programs and activities that pertain to the promotion of interreligious knowledge and skills in five major American Jewish rabbinical schools: Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (both in Cincinnati and in New York) (Reform); the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (Conservative); Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (Reconstructionist); and Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (Orthodox). The survey was motivated by a conviction that some basic knowledge of Christian thought and history and some basic skills of interreligious dialogue will be desired, if not required, of rabbis and other Jewish communal leaders in the years ahead.
