The Woolf Institute is dedicated to teaching, research and dialogue in the encounter between Jews, Christians and Muslims. It is an umbrella organisation for the Centre for the Study of Jewish–Christian Relations (CJCR, founded in 1998) and the Centre for the Study of Muslim–Jewish Relations (CMJR, established in 2006). The Woolf Institute is named in honour of Lord Harry Woolf, former Lord Chief Justice, who gives it his full support and encouragement.
CJCR is one of the world's leading institutes in the study and teaching of all aspects of the encounter between Christians and Jews throughout the ages. CMJR is the first and only academic centre in Europe dedicated to fostering relations between Muslims and Jews through teaching, research and dialogue.
