The group of Jewish studies is part of CREA and is the most recently created group after CEG and the Group of Muslim Studies Alhiwar. Like in the other groups, there are Jewish and non-Jewish persons in it. The diversity of identities and the interdisciplinarity is seen as a form of enrichment and as a means to promote an exchange that allows elaborating contributions that really take into account the proposals and realities of the Jewish people.
The start of the CEJ is based on the process of dialogue between the group and the other members of CREA. In this process, we have identified common positions and links of collaboration between the CEJ and different centres and groups:
- Between CEG and CEJ: to work on the education about the Holocaust.
- Between the Group of Arab-Muslim Studies Alhiwar and the CEJ: to work on the interreligious dialogue (Judaism and Islam) and/or the conflict Arab-Israeli (among Jewish, Muslims and Israelis).
