Fall 2013 Conferences and Events | The Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies | Pepperdine University

Conferences and Events

Hosting special events and conferences for the entire campus community allows the Glazer Institute to reach a wider audience and to attract a diverse and distinguished assembly of speakers to discuss some of the most challenging topics of the day. Discussing controversial issues in a respectful atmosphere has allowed audience members not only to better understand the facets of the topic, but also to learn from the example of panelists who respect differences while remaining faithful to their own traditions and ideals.
