Madrasa-Midrasha Program

Founded in 2008, the Madrasa-Midrasha Program explores the richness, diversity, differences, and commonalities of the Jewish and Islamic traditions. A collaborative effort between the GTU's Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies and its Center for Islamic Studies, the program seeks to advance study, dialogue, and understanding on Jewish and Islamic texts and contexts within academia and the larger public. In addition to offering cross-cultural academic courses to GTU students, the program offers workshops, lectures, and panel discussions to the public at large in the greater San Francisco Bay area.
