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." Rabbi Ron Kronish writes: “I have active with the Focolare movement in Israel and internationally, and have always found them to be genuine dialogue partners, and serious activists for making our world more human, compassionate and loving.” “While respecting each person's individuality, and each religion's particularity, all the speakers at the conference -- Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and Sikhs -- stressed our common humanity and our common universal values.”Full article For more about the conference
