Christian Jewish Relation and Encounter, Toronto, ON

Christian Jewish Relation and EncounterCJRE - Christian Jewish Relation and Encounter - is an outreach of the Sisters of Our Lady of Sion in North America. Begun in 1986, CJRE is inspired by the commitment expressed by Vatican Council II in Nostra Aetate regarding the relationship of the church to the Jewish people.

Conscious that Christianity is linked to Judaism from its origin to its final destiny, CJRE seeks to:

  • witness in the church and in the world that God's faithful love for the Jewish people has never been revoked; (cf., Pope John Paul II)
  • ensure the rights of all people by helping to bring the values of the Christian and Jewish faith traditions to work for a just peace through understanding, reconciliation and partnership.
