After many years of fostering Jewish-Christian relations, the center has expanded its mission to promote interfaith learning and friendship among people of various religions.
It does this in a variety of ways, primarily through undergraduate courses taught by the center's director and the occupant of the Jay Phillips Chair in Jewish Studies, congregational and high school programs, retreats and workshops for clergy and religious educators, and artistic programs and lectures for the general public.
The Jay Phillips Chair is an integral part of the Jay Phillips Center. The mission of the chair is to promote the study of Judaism, with special emphasis on the relationship of Judaism to Christianity and other religions.
Remaining deeply committed to the enhancement of Jewish-Christian relations, the Jay Phillips Center is now equally committed to its expanded interfaith mission.
