to the Potsdam School of Jewish Theology! You will find information on these pages about this unique institution and the opportunities it offers to students, scholars, future rabbis and cantors, and anybody else interested in Judaism as a religion and a way of life. Whether you are Jewish or not, I hope that you get a feel for our passion for researching and teaching Jewish theology in all its diverse forms.
If you are interested in exploring the treasures waiting to be found in the Bible and in the Talmud, in Jewish religious law and liturgical practice, in Jewish thought and its religious and intellectual history, I invite you to contact us and join us at our beautiful campus in Potsdam to study or research at the School of Jewish Theology or our partners, the Abraham Geiger College and the Zacharias Frankel College.
On the following pages you can also discover the historical importance of the Potsdam School in the context of the establishment of Jewish theology as an academic discipline.
I would very much like to hear from you and I look forward to welcoming you to Potsdam.

Seventy years of Jewish-Christian dialogue has found surprisingly little resonance in Christian Systematic Theology. This insight was the basis of a conference in Vienna where exegetes and systematicians of Roman-Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish Theology intensively engaged in discussing the question: how can Christian traditions credibly speak of Jesus Christ without denigrating Judaism or appropriating it for their own ends? Arising from findings of contemporary exegesis, the volume presents a variety of diverse approaches to Christology that take Jesus the Jew seriously, and are willing to recognize Judaism in a manner characterized by mutual acceptance and esteem.
