Contains contributions toward mutual understanding undertaken together by Jews and Christians from various parts of the globe.

This small volume contains contributions from several gatherings that can be seen as a journey, undertaken together by Jews and Christians from various parts of the globe. These are evidently neither official dialogues nor academic ones, even though some of the participants do hold leadership positions in the Jewish community and in the Catholic Church and/or are academics.

The article refers to a conference in Italy entitled: “Together, Towards the Unity of the Human Family."
