Jewish-Christian Understanding

With funding assistance from the Kraft-Hiatt family, the McFarland Center aims to reshape the way that Christians understand Judaism in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. The Center also promotes the study of Jewish beliefs and Jewish life more generally.

Readings from the Roots

Readings from the Roots is a historically sensitive translation of the Revised Common Lectionary with the goal of reducing the potential for anti-Judaism by enriching Christianity through its roots in Judaism.

Kraft-Hiatt Program

Funded by the College and the Kraft-Hiatt family, the Kraft-Hiatt Program for Jewish-Christian Understanding sponsors a number of opportunities that profoundly impact individual student and faculty participants and the campus community. The initiative includes lecture series, conferences, visiting scholars, and support for faculty and students to study abroad.
