The Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies has recently expanded the scope of its mission and is now developing educational programs to engage Jews, Christians, and Muslims. In the months to come, the organization will also change its name to reflect this important shift. To fulfill its expanded educational mandate, we are seeking an educator with a commitment to interfaith learning and experience with educational best practices that bring Muslims, Christians, and Jews into searching conversation and sustained study.

Our constituencies include clergy, religious professionals, educators, scholars, adult learners, and community leaders.


  • Develop assessments that will enable the ICJS to evaluate programs and demonstrate effectiveness in achieving its mission.
