Interfaith Study Mission



Co-sponsored with the Greensboro Jewish Federation and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, the Interfaith Study Mission builds bridges of understanding by bringing together an interfaith group of Triad residents who travel through Israel and Palestine, the land where three major faith traditions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) originated. Participants return to the Triad prepared to assume larger leadership roles that transcend religious boundaries. Since its inception, the Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation has been a key funder of the Interfaith Study Mission.


The Interfaith Study Mission takes place every three years. The Eighth Mission took place in March 2019, and the Ninth Mission is scheduled for March 2022. If you are interested in learning more about this community building experience, please contact NCCJ for more information.
