Judaism, Christianity and the Theology of Contemporary Religious Pluralism

Arnold M. Eisen, one of the world’s foremost authorities on American Judaism, is the seventh chancellor of The Jewish Theological Seminary. Since taking office in 2007, Chancellor Eisen has transformed the education of religious, pedagogical, professional, and lay leaders for North American Jewry, with a focus on graduating leaders who bring Judaism alive in ways that speak authentically to Jews at a time of far-reaching change.

He has increased digitization of JTS Library treasures, launched a JTS Fellows program to expand opportunities for adult learning, and developed JTS Torah Online, a rich menu of videos, podcasts, and Torah commentary. His initiatives also include the Block/Kolker Center for Spiritual Arts; programs to strengthen early childhood, experiential, and Israel education; the Arts Initiative; the interfaith Center for Pastoral Education; and the Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue.

Chancellor Eisen discusses Jewish education, philosophy, and values on his blog, On My Mind: Arnie Eisen

Arnie Eisen delivered an interesting, well thought out and thought provoking presentation the reasoning behind his
belief in the necessity of all religions to achieve a universal pluralism. As he put it we all need each other for each of us to attain a more fulfilling future.
