What is EJCR?
Jewish-Christian relations can look back on more than half a century of striking achievements. There are now initiatives and centers all over the world addressing fundamental issues. This is why 2017 is the right moment to launch a comprehensive Encyclopedia of Jewish–Christian Relations in four volumes. Until 2022 international experts at the cutting edge of their discipline will summarize in two hundred entries more than two thousand years of Jewish-Christian interaction, assess the achievements of dialogue and provide joint perspectives and new avenues for the future.
