Interfaith and Intergroup Relations

Through partnerships, events, community programs and discussions, JCRC/AJC works to maintain and improve ongoing relationships with major ethnic, religious, racial and civic groups in metropolitan Detroit. Our outreach to diverse groups, including the Muslim, Black, Hindu and Latino communities, enables us to collaborate on issues, such as minority rights and immigration reform.

JCRC/AJC works regularly with the Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC), Council of Baptist Pastors of Detroit and Vicinity and Interfaith Leadership Council, among other groups. Bridge building initiatives include Mitzvah Day with the MMCC and the 2018 launch of the Coalition for Black and Jewish Unity with the Council of Baptist Pastors.
