The initiative aims at filling the existing gap of missing contemporary Jewish literature and rabbinic thought in the modern Greek language. The Greek society had always had friendly bonds and relations with the Jewish communities, and this was especially important during the World War II when many Jews found refuge and protection in Greece.
Among the translated works there are some articles written by Rabbi Jack Bemporad, as well as parts of his book The Inner Journey (Views from the Jewish Tradition). Having translations of these works in Greek will make an important effect in developing a positive dynamic of the Jewish and Christian Orthodox relations on the academic, as well as popular level once the publications will become available to the wider public.
