THE Anglican Jewish Commission of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and the Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury met in Dublin this week, for the first time since it was founded.

The conference, which is organised between the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and Lambeth Palace, met in the Taca Hall at the Terenure Synagogue, in Dublin, and focused on the theme "Memory, Community and Identity".

The Archbishop of Dublin, Dr Michael Jackson, is the Anglican co-chair of the Commission, a post he shared with the acting co-chair, Rabbi Rasson Arousi, the Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Ono.

The Commission's three-day visit included a reception at Áras an Uachtaráin, hosted by President Higgins; and the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, the Very Revd Dermot Dunne, hosted a reception for Commission members and other faith leaders in Dublin.
