When Pope Paul VI established the Holy See's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews (CRRJ) on October 22, 1974, a so-called International Catholic–Jewish Liaison Committee (ILC) had already been in place for four years, having been instituted in Rome on December 23, 1970. The work of the ILC up to the present day can be summarized by distinguishing three different stages: the years 1971–3, 1974–93, and 1994–2006. During the second stage, thirteen sessions were held, focusing on the theme of education, as well as human rights, mission and witness, antisemitism, and the Shoah. The third stage, whose beginning coincides with the establishment of regular diplomatic relations between the Holy See and the State of Israel on December 30 and 31, 1993, includes meetings fifteen through nineteen. Today, among the challenges that the ILC finds itself obliged to face, we also find the one expressed by the Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalifa al-Thani, prime minister of Qatar, who wishes for conversation between Muslims, Christians, and Jews.
