The Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations is dedicated to cultivating the practice of “Welcoming the Stranger. We educate for religious, ethical, and cultural literacy; we seek to counter destructive prejudice and increase mutual understanding among peoples of diverse beliefs.
"There is no one in the human race to whom we do not owe love." - St. Augustine, Letter 130.13

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.
