The Council of Christians and Jews is Britain’s oldest national inter-faith organisation. It was established in 1942 to (1) promote religious and cultural understanding between Christians and Jews (2), to work for the elimination of religious and racial prejudice, hatred and discrimination, particularly antisemitism and (3), to promote religious and racial harmony on the basis of ethical and social teachings common to Christianity and Judaism. The CCJ is organised into a series of local branches and the Norwich Hebrew Congregation is pleased to be an active supported of the Norfolk branch who together arrange talks, services and quizzes and other events throughout the year including the extremely successful and well attended Holocaust Day Memorial Service which is held annually in late January at the church of St. Peter Mancroft in Norwich.
