The Mission of the Miller Center is to provide current and future religious and ethical leaders with the knowledge and skills to serve in a religiously diverse society. Our work is rooted in the cultivation of authentic personal and institutional relationships across lines of difference. It is our conviction that through study, dialogue, and joint action, we can help create a more just, compassionate, and sustainable world. The Miller Center staff works with clergy, academics, and communal leaders, as well as graduate students and seminarians. We are involved in both local and national initiatives, using a combination of in-person and online educational tools.
Drawing on a rich institutional legacy of interreligious and cross-cultural initiatives and partnerships, the Miller Center staff and affiliated faculty work in four interrelated areas of education and leadership development:
Graduate Education – In partnership with other member schools of the Boston Theological Institute, the Miller Center coordinates Hebrew College’s graduate courses and certification programs in interreligious education and leadership
Professional Development – The Miller Center offers various workshops, seminars, and fellowships for clergy, educators, and non-profit leaders relating to issues of religion and public life.
Adult Education – The staff and affiliated faculty of the Miller Center offer various adult education courses on the religious thought and practices of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
Publications – The Miller Center, in collaboration with other academic and communal organizations, produces both scholarly and popular written works on interreligious and cross-cultural engagement
The Miller Center is a member organization of the Assocation for College and University Religious Affairs and the Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations. The Miller Center also holds affiliate status with the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada, but is not an accredited member of the Association.
The Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership, was established through a generous gift from Dan Miller, a member of the Hebrew College Board of Trustees and husband of the late Betty Ann Greenbaum Miller (of blessed memory), MAJS'05.
