The 2013 annual Osher Department International Theology Conference will be held from Feb. 17-21, 2013.
The International Theology Conference takes place every winter at the Institute's Jerusalem campus, and attracts 70 theologians from dozens of countries. The four-day program comprises lectures, roundtable discussions and small-group study sessions.
The 2013 conference is dedicated to "Foregiveness."
Participation in the International Theology Conference, which is by invitation only, is reserved for distinguished theologians from universities and centers of religious learning around the world.
The public is invited to one public forum, The Edward Bronfman Family Foundation Annual Lecture on Religious Pluralism, during each year's conference. The 2013 Bronfman Lecture is titled, "From Crisis to Covenant: Rethinking a Narrative for Israel," and features Donniel Hartman and the Rev. Peter Pettit, co-director of the Institute's New Paths: Christians Engaging Israel Project, and is moderated by Dr. Marcie Lenk, also co-director of New Paths. The lecture is set for 8 PM (20:00) on Tuesday, Feb. 19.
