(PressZoom) - Wyncote, PA, July 18 — The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College has received a $300,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to support a unique and comprehensive initiative to improve understanding among Jews, Christians and Muslims.

The three-year grant—the first major award from the foundation to a rabbinical school for interfaith work—will allow RRC to put in place a groundbreaking program for interfaith education critically needed to address religious divisiveness in the post-9/11 world. The RRC program, unmatched by any other Jewish seminary, also will enable the rabbinical school to deepen its 20-year commitment to interfaith education.
