The Scout Report

December 1, 2006 | Volume 12, Number 48

The Center for Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College “is dedicated to the growth of new and mutually enriching relationships between Christians and Jews.” To achieve this goal, the Center has established a wide range of outreach efforts, including lectures, seminars, and a number of publications and newsletters. On their site, visitors can learn about these events, and should also start their online journey by looking directly at the “Center Archives” section. Here visitors will find archived news bulletins from the Center and the splendid “Documents Depository”. The Depository contains a number of primary texts on Christian-Jewish relations, most of which are focused on the United States and the Vatican. Visitors can use a search engine to look over these documents, or they can browse around at their leisure. The site is rounded out by a collection of streaming videos that include panel discussions on such topics as German Protestant theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was a noted Nazi resistor.
