Workshop
Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education

Amy-Jill Levine will offer a workshop for clergy, secondary school teachers, elementary school teachers, bible study leaders, Sunday school instructors, scripture faculty, and religious educators on how to engage, teach, and proclaim the Christian Scriptures without bearing false witness against Judaism. All participants will receive a copy of The Jewish Annotated New Testament, eds. Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler (Oxford, 2012).  This breakfast workshop is open to the public.  Registration is $10 per person; scholarships are available.

Her recent books include The Meaning of the Bible: What the Jewish Scriptures and the Christian Old Testament Can Teach Us (co-authored with Douglas Knight) and The Jewish Annotated New Testament (co-edited with Marc Brettler). A self-described Yankee Jewish feminist, Professor Levine is a member of an Orthodox Synagogue in Nashville Tennessee, although she is often quite unorthodox.
