Academic research, publications, international symposia, conferences, debates, as well as cultural events and building relations between students from Poland and Israel are the main tasks of the Abraham J. Heschel Centre for Catholic-Jewish Relations at the Catholic University of Lublin, which will be inaugurated on 17 October 2022.
According to the Rector of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin (KUL), Rev. Prof. Mirosław Kalinowski, work on the establishment of the Centre has been going on for several months; it will be a unit functioning within the structure of the university.
“In addition to scientific activities and research on history, culture, common heritage and interreligious dialogue, we plan to prepare socio-cultural projects. A strategic issue is the involvement of young people from Poland and Israel, mutual visits and events with their participation. We want this activity to be widely present in the Internet space,” said Rev. Prof. Kalinowski.
