PCJCMR was first founded in the 1950s with a focus on building positive relationships between Chrisitans and Jews. With the growth of a large, wonderful and diverse Muslim community in the United States, we have added development of relationships between and among Christians, Jews and Muslims to the tasks we consider crucial.  We hope to build dialogues between the faith communities on the local level, be advocates for peace and justice on issues that relate to the three faith communities, and sponsor educational opportunities.  We invite your ideas and participation in our work.  We are an informal group of members, ministers, and congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA); we are not an offical agency of the Presbyterian Church.

Jews For Judaism
It's a law of physics. It's also true in the realm of the spirit. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When any group perceives itself as a "target" for evangelism, you can expect a reaction. This is particularly true of Jews, who have lots of experience reacting to misguided Christian evangelists.

They are committed to interjecting a key part of Jesus' message and ministry into the conflict: namely enemies need to love, not terrorize each other; speak with and negotiate, not ignore each other.
