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:

  1. To deepen the Christian relationship with Jews, Judaism and Israel.
  2. To draw together the different Christian traditions into a theological fraternity.
  3. To be a catalyst in Christian-Jewish dialogue and reconciliation world-wide.
