The CJDT works to promote, encourage and facilitate a better understanding between members of the Christian and Jewish communities, with the hope of eliminating the prejudice and bigotry which has marred Christian-Jewish relations for generations.
Christian-Jewish dialogue grew out of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto's desire to approach the Jewish people initiated by the Reverend Roland de Corneille in 1962. It was his desire to emphasize dialogue and eliminate proselytization in the relationship between Christians and Jews.
Fourteen years later, on May 25, 1976, The Christian-Jewish Dialogue of Toronto (CJDT) was formally incorporated as an ecumentical endeavour by the following sponsoring bodies: the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, and the Toronto Conference of the United Church of Canada.
