Ecumenical Theological Research Fraternity in Israel
The Fraternity is founded in Jerusalem in February 1966 by a group of clergy and theologians living in Israel. They shared the feeling that recent history demanded a fundamental consideration of Christian attitudes towards the Jewish faith and people, and that the State of Israel offered a unique setting for facing this task together.
The objectives of the Ecumenical Fraternity are:
- To deepen the Christian relationship with Jews, Judaism and Israel.
- To draw together the different Christian traditions into a theological fraternity.
- To be a catalyst in Christian-Jewish dialogue and reconciliation world-wide.
