Our goals and vision

Nostra Aetate 4 is Catholic non-profit that has taken the name of a declaration of the second Vatican council regarding the dialogue between Jews and Christians. Following the spirit of this document which seeks “to foster and recommend that mutual understanding and respect, which is the fruit, above all, of Biblical and theological studies as well as of fraternal dialogues”. Our goal is to initiate the Christian public to the richness and depth of Jewish thought - in order to better know and understand the sources of Christian faith and better appreciate Judaism in its profound authenticity. In this perspective, we offer study sessions in Jerusalem, programs in partnership with academic institutions and an online studies website which share a common goal of presenting the tradition and the history of Jewish thought to a wide Christian audience in order to foster initiatives of study, dialogue and research.
