IJCIC represents world Jewry in dialogue with the Vatican, Ecumenical Patriarchate, and World Council of Churches. It represents 11 major Jewish organizations, bringing together Jews from across denominations and areas of focus in common cause. IJCIC was founded in 1970 to build upon transformational change in Catholic-Jewish relations brought about by the declaration of Nostra Aetate five years earlier.

As the American Jewish Committee reflected:

“IJCIC is the recognized representative of world Jewry in its dialogues with the Vatican, Ecumenical Patriarchate, and World Council of Churches. The consortium of 11 Jewish organizations was founded in 1970, in response to the dramatic, positive transformation of Christian attitudes toward Jews and Judaism, notably the Roman Catholic Church’s Nostra Aetate.

IJCIC member organizations include American Jewish Committee (AJC), Anti-Defamation League (ADL), B’nai B’rith International (BBI), Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR), Israel Jewish Council on Interreligious Relations (IJCIR), Rabbinical Assembly (RA), Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America (OU), United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), and World Jewish Congress (WJC).”
