Study abroad for two weeks in summer 2018:
INTERFAITH ENGAGEMENT IN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL
Courses: RLN 205 or RLN 490. This program also fulfills Augsburg Experience
Join this two-week course to gain a transformational learning experience. You will be immersed in the Israeli and Palestinian contexts, particularly focusing on the three Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Through lectures, readings, and conversations you will deepen your understanding of the history, sacred texts, beliefs and practices of the three Abrahamic faiths. Particular attention will be given to the roots of conflicts in the region and to peacebuilding movements.
We will visit holy sites that are at the center of the sacred stories that shape the beliefs and practices of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. We will hear how faith shapes the daily lives of those living in the land often called “holy.”
Applications are due on January 31, and SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE!
