Behold the place: Sisters teach Catholicism from Jewish perspective in heart of Jerusalem – Global Sisters Report

Above ground, the sun-drenched terraces of Ecce Homo Centre for Biblical Formation provide a breathtaking panorama of Jerusalem’s Old City. Below ground, the views are no less impressive: a subterranean world dating back to just after the time of Jesus. The Notre Dame de Sion sisters who run the institute have an intricate and layered history with Judaism. Theirs is a dramatic journey that started with praying for conversion of Jews and eventually transformed into one of the leading voices within the church advocating for acceptance and cooperation with Jewish communities.
