More About the West Shore Committee for Jewish/Christian Dialogue
This conference is the first of a series of annual scholarly conferences sponsored by Calvin College, Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Valley State University, Hope College, and Western Theological Seminary, and initiated by the West Shore Committee for Jewish/Christian Dialogue. The objective is to provide programming for West Michigan academics, students and the general public that leads to greater interfaith understanding and mutual acceptance, an extension of the mission of the West Shore Committee for Jewish/Christian Dialogue.
Since 1991, the West Shore Committee has provided a major dialogue program of regional and national significance every three years. The following internationally acclaimed scholars have participated Bishop/Dean Emeritus Krister Stendahl, Rabbi/Professor David Hartman, Prof. Martin Marty, Father Richard John Neuhaus, Rabbi/Dr. Irving Greenberg, and Prof. Harvey Cox. The next major dialogue will take place at the Frauenthal Center in Muskegon on October 28, 2003 with James Carroll, Rabbi Irving Greenberg and Bishop Stendahl moderating. The West Shore Committee has also provided a variety of scholar-in-residence weekends and experiential events.
