        The Association of Hebrew Catholics (AHC) is a voluntary organization of Catholics of both Jewish and non-Jewish origin, faithful to the Magisterium and under the patronage of Miriam, Our Lady of the Miracle, and St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein).

        The mission of the AHC is pastoral and educational, working to help preserve the identity and heritage of Jews who have entered the Catholic Church. Toward this end, the AHC seeks to connect with Hebrew Catholics, to serve the Lord, His Church, and all people within the mystery of their irrevocable calling. Eventually, the AHC seeks to establish a juridically approved community of the People Israel within the Church.

        Elias Friedman OCD, in collaboration with Andrew Sholl – a holocaust survivor, established the AHC in 1979. His book, Jewish Identity, providing the explanation and rationale for the AHC, was the first book published by The Miriam Press in 1987. The Miriam Press, is the publishing arm of the AHC and publishes books in support of the mission of the AHC.
