The goal of the JCDC is to respectfully educate Jews and Christians about the countless faith-based connections that they have. This awareness is accomplished by relating the religious history of Jesus’ family, community and followers. His education, which prepared him to be a rabbi, also reflected his spiritual orientation. A second step in achieving this objective will be to offer original interpretations for many of the stories found in the Christian Bible. A third aim is to create new and inventive symbols, rituals and events which reflect the deep and abiding relationships that Jews and Christians could enjoy. Ultimately, our mission is to increase interfaith knowledge while simultaneously reducing anti-Semitism.
