Background on Interfaith Issues

Interfaith issues at the Religious Action Center exist on two separate levels — through coalitions and in our communities. The Reform Movement works with various religious groups on several social justice issues. Despite certain theological differences, the Religious Action Center has found common ground with other religious groups, such as the National Council of ChurchesUnited Methodist ChurchBaptist Joint Committee on Religious Liberty, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Islamic Council of North America. Through coalition work, we have been able to set aside our differences and work toward common goals, such as preserving basic fundamental human rights, cherished by faith communities. The Religious Action Center also deals with the relationship between the Reform Jewish community and other religious groups, outside of the political arena, on a local and national level.
