Mission and Activities: The primary goal of the Council is to foster relationships between religious communities through education and mutual support. The Council identifies the religious community's response to the 1981 destruction of a Jewish synagogue by arson as the primary source of their commitment. At that time, various Christian congregations banded together to provide space and resources to support the Jewish congregation. Today, in addition to periodic 'pulpit swaps,' the Council coordinates joint outreach efforts to the community.
