Cambridge Interfaith Programme


Inspired by Dr Anastasia Badder’s research on Jewish supplementary education in Luxembourg and the interplay between literacy, citizenship, and community boundaries, CIP worked with Leo Baeck College to host a series of conversations at the intersection of language learning and religious education. The discussions demonstrated significant overlap between Muslim and Jewish experience, and illustrated the complexity of definitions vis-à-vis what makes language sacred. 

A community of interest formed around the topic and continues to correspond informally. Dr Badder and Dr Jo-Ann Myers (Leo Baeck) are editing a collected volume on the topic.
