Association of Hebrew Catholics
The work of the Association of Hebrew Catholics (AHC) is pastoral and educational. The AHC seeks to preserve the identity and heritage of Jews within the Church. In this way, their collective witness can serve the Lord, His Church, and all people within the mystery of their irrevocable gifts and calling. We hope to help all Catholics understand the Jewish roots of their faith and to help those on their spiritual journey to Christ and His Church.
The Miriam Press is the publishing arm of the Association of Hebrew Catholics. The books that have been published so far are:

Apostolates Whose Work Supports the Mission of the AHC
