The Glazer Institute was established based on the understanding that as a Christian University, Pepperdine's students are especially open to discussions of faith and identity, but are often unacquainted with Christianity’s historical and ongoing relationship with Judaism.

Jewish Culture Club Convo

The Glazer Institute is proud to partner with Seaver College to offer the Jewish Culture Club Convo. Opened to all Seaver students irrespective of their religious beliefs, the club convo is led by Pepperdine rabbi in residence Ari Schwarzberg, and it explores the intersection of Judaism and Christianity while touching upon fundamentals of Jewish culture, texts, and ideas. The rabbi in residence program is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles with a grant to Pepperdine's Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies. Club convos partially fulfill convocation requirements.
