Other Faiths

Since its inception, AJC has been one of the leading organizations-Jewish or American--committed to strengthening understanding and communication across religious lines. Our goals include communicating concerns and sensitivities of the Jewish community to those of other faiths, and helping the Jewish community understand the concerns and sensitivities of others. Through organizational partnerships and coalitions, formal and informal discussions and conversations, academic conferences, publications, and personal interaction, our efforts have made major contributions to cooperation and mutual respect among peoples of all faiths.

AJC interreligious affairs have historically concentrated on Christian-Jewish relations, with new efforts and initiatives involving the Muslim community, as well. Now, as America's population more and more reflects the pluralism of the world faith community, we will identify and pursue opportunities to develop positive and meaningful relationships with all religious communities.
