Promote understanding and reverence for the richness of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, our history together, and the imperatives of caring contemporary and ongoing relations;
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.
