Institute for Islamic - Christian - Jewish Studies, Baltimore, MD

ICJSThe Institute for Islamic - Christian - Jewish Studies (ICJS) is a non-profit organization that concentrates its educational expertise on the dual tasks of disarming religious hatred and establishing models of interfaith understanding. We build learning communities where religious difference becomes a powerful force for good.


Why is our work both urgent and essential? 
Strife and violence are often ignited by religious differences. We see another way. Our work demonstrates that religious differences can become a powerful force for the good.

How do we achieve our mission?
We go beyond the study of our commonalities to a serious engagement with our religious differences so that people learn to see the world through the eyes of others. We believe that our best selves emerge out of the shared study of our sacred texts, traditions and practices. We welcome difficult questions and invite people into unfamiliar religious ways of thinking.
