College of the Holy Cross
April 2-3, 2019

In April 2019, the Readings from the Roots translation team hosted a two-day conference at the College of the Holy Cross to highlight the project and engage scholars and practitioners, especially Christian clergy:

  1. To deepen their understanding of the authors’ relationship to Judaism in the diverse writings of the New Testament;
  2. To articulate the challenges and opportunities for accurately reflecting that relationship in a translation of Scripture; and
  3. To consider how a translation of the texts can be used in worship to eradicate the anti-Judaism that continues to be associated with Christian readings of the Bible.

All conference sessions free and open to the public. Complimentary meals available to conference guests who pre-registered.


This conference was made possible with support from the Kraft-Hiatt Fund for Jewish-Christian Understanding.
