ICCJ 2017 Conference: Reforming, Rereading, Renewing

logo_iccj_topICCJ, International Council of Christians and Jews, inbjuder till konferens i Bonn den 2 – 5 juli 2017. Temat är Reforming, Rereading, Renewing: Martin Luther and 500 Years of Tradition and Reform in Judaism and Christianity.

I den information, som ICCJ skickat till sina medlemsorganisationer, står bland annat att då alla religioner idag utmanas att på nytt tolka sina traditioner i ett globalt sammanhang upplever man en spänning mellan etablerade traditioner och behovet av reformer.

I konferensen i Bonn kommer man att ställa frågor som:

  • Vilka upptäckter gör vi då vi i ett interreligiöst sammanhang tillsammans läser våra heliga texter på nytt?
  • Vilka värden och värderingar kan vi dela och uppskatta gemensamt och hos varandra?
  • Vilka reformer anser vi vara nödvändiga i våra egna religiösa sammanhang?

För ytterligare information: www.iccj.org
Anmälan till konferensen kan ske från och med mitten av februari.

The Future of Interreligious Dialogue in Israel

Ron Kronish | 02.02.2016

What does the future for interreligious dialogue look like in Israel? At a time when stabbings on the street have become almost a daily occurrence and tension is high, can Jews, Muslims and Christians — all citizens of the state of Israel — envision a better future for the followers of their religion in this country? How we bring the reality closer to the ideal? In which areas, and with which target groups, should we focus?

Update: AJCF statement on the recent terrorist attacks in Paris

Anette Adelmann, ICCJ General Secretary | 14.01.2015

In the wake of the series of attacks this week in Paris, the ICCJ wishes to share and associate itself with the following statement from the Amitié judéo-chrétienne de France (AJCF), our member organization in France. We assure our friends and colleagues there that we are very much united with them in this time of shock and sorrow and applaud all efforts to bring people together in unity in the aftermath of such violence. Although the focus of the ICCJ is on relations between Jews and Christians, its vision also includes promoting respect, understanding, and mutual enrichment among the three Abrahamic traditions and indeed among all religious communities. The deaths that have occurred motivate us to work even harder in achieving this vision.

Brev från ICCJ angående attacken på satirtidningen Charlie Hebdo i Paris

AJCF statement on this week’s attack against Charlie Hebdo

Anette Adelmann, ICCJ General Secretary | 09.01.2015

In the wake of the terrible attack this week on the staff of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the ICCJ wishes to share the following statement from the Amitié judéo-chrétienne de France (AJCF), our member organization in France, and to assure our friends and colleagues there that we are very much united to them in this time of shock and sorrow.

Jacqueline Cuche
Présidente de l’Amitié Judéo-Chrétienne de France :

On this Thursday, 8th January, the Jewish-Christian Friendship Association of France is united to the national mourning in France. The horrible attack yesterday against the newspaper “Charlie Hebdo” did not target either Jews or Christians specifically, but took aim at people who symbolized one of the fundamental values both Jews and Christians prize: freedom … freedom of conscience … freedom of thought … freedom of expression. This crime has attempted to undermine the very principles upon which our society rests, and which allow all of us—Jews, Christians, Muslims, believers of other religions, non-believers or atheists—to live together in peace, equal in dignity. Now more than ever, dialogue between people of differing religions or convictions seems to the Jewish-Christian Friendship Association of France to be the path necessary to overcome the temptation to hatred.
