On 30 December 1993 during the pontificate of John Paul II, the historic Fundamental Agreement between the Holy See and Israel was signed in Jerusalem, entering into force in 1994 with the exchange in April of their respective ambassadors. The signing of the Fundamental Agreement not only established diplomatic relations, but also collaboration in the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of religious racism and intolerance, the promotion of academic exchanges and the increase of Christian pilgrimages to the Holy Land combining political and spiritual aspects. The pilgrimage to the Holy Land of John Paul II in 2000 contributed greatly to the improvement in relations between Jews and Christians and to the strengthening of diplomatic relations between the two countries, as well as the visit of Benedict XVI in 2009 marked a further step on the path of dialogue. Pope Francis visited Israel in May 2014 and was greeted with great enthusiasm by the entire Israeli population without distinction of faith. The joint sheet issued for the occasion depicts the church of Saint Peter (house of Peter) and the synagogue of Capernaum, testifying to the depth and uniqueness of the relations and exchange between Judaism and Christianity and, for 25 years, between the Holy See and the State of Israel.
