Community United Church of Christ and Temple Beth Israel founded Interfaith Scholar Weekend in 1998, bringing Dr. Alan Segal to speak on the “Development of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism in the Roman World.”  The event was such a great experience that it was decided to continue bringing other scholars on an annual basis.
