Center for Christian-Jewish Learning


The Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations (CCJR) is 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.
