The Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies is part of the ISIRC (Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Religions and Cultures), and at the same time maintains and develops its own identity.
In collaboration with the Faculties of Theology and Philosophy of the Pontifical Gregorian University, with the Pontifical Biblical Institute, with SIDIC (Service International de Documentation Judéo-Chrétienne), and with academic centres in Italy and abroad, it offers a variety of courses, lectures, conferences, and other programmes, including a specialisation in Judaic Studies, that offers a diploma and Master of Arts.
The Centre for the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations (CJCR) is an independent, self-financing educational institution dedicated to teaching, research and dialogue in the encounter between Jews and Christians. Established in 1998, CJCR is one of the world's leading institutes in the study and teaching of all aspects of the encounter between Christians and Jews throughout the ages.
The importance of this discussion group is due to several factors. First, the representativeness of the ZdK which groups Catholic lay organizations totaling 5 million members! Second, the level of expertise of the group members, both Catholic and Jewish, more than two dozen together, who are all academicians. The third reason: the group has not only discussed issues but also has influenced larger public.
The Sisters of Sion Congregational Team for Jewish-Christian Relations is composed of members of the congregation from around the world devoted to implementing its special charism for Christian-Jewish relations.
