The Center for Christian-Jewish Learning is committed to developing and maintaining partnerships with other organizations working in the area of Christian-Jewish relations. Through its local, national, and international partnerships, the Center aims to strengthen collaborative research, dialogical, educational, and ministerial efforts in the area of Christian-Jewish relations.
The Center for Christian-Jewish Learning is a founding member of the Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations (CCJR), an association of centers and institutes in the United States and Canada devoted to enhancing mutual understanding between Jews and Christians. Representatives from major Christian and Jewish agencies and religious bodies are members of the Council. The purposes of the Council are to provide a vehicle for exchange of information, cooperation, and mutual enrichment among centers and institutes for Christian-Jewish studies and relations in the United States; to promote research and publications on the history, theology, and contemporary realities of Jewish-Christian relations; and to relate to similar undertakings in other parts of the world as a national member of the International Council of Christians and Jews (ICCJ).
Through a collaboration with the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations of Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, the CCJR maintains Dialogika, an online library that chronicles the evolving conversation and relationship between the Christian and Jewish communities. This online library provides a comprehensive cyber-archive of official statements, historic documents, educational resources, and current information.

“I've lost track of how many virtual seminars and programs I've joined since the start of COVID! One of the few benefits, no doubt. But because the Holocaust is my area of specialization, the 3 day program we just completed was especially interesting and thought provoking for me. Thank you so very much. The whole idea of the topic and format was terrific. I wish we had been able to continue.”
