Contextualising Theology: The Training of Jewish and Muslim Leaders in the UK
Thursday 25 March 2010
There is a growing consensus among educationists and theologians involved in the training of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religious leaders in the UK that the seminary curricula producing future Rabbis, Priests and Imams must seriously consider the pluralist nature of our society by providing courses, alongside the theological disciplines, which will help the graduates of seminaries to contribute more effectively to a secular and pluralist society.
On the 25th March 2010 the Centre for the Study of Muslim Jewish Relations held a conference entitled "Contextualising Theology: The Training of Jewish and Muslim Leaders in the UK". Speakers included Dr Ataullah Siddiqui, Academic Director and Reader in Religious Pluralism and Inter-Faith Relations at the Markfield Institute of Higher Education in Leicester, and Rabbi Professor Marc Saperstein, Principal of Leo Baeck College (London).
