IN TIMES OF CONFLICT AND CONTROVERSY
IN OUR COMMUNITY, MCCJ HAS BEEN
A BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS.”
— H.T. Smith
Embracing diversity….building an inclusive community
MCCJ’s mission is to advance understanding and respect among all cultures, religions and races.
MCCJ was founded in 1935 as the Miami branch of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Since 2011, following the demise of the national organization, we have been known only as MCCJ.
MCCJ seeks an inclusive community in which all people are treated with dignity and respect. Rooted in interfaith good will, our mission includes creating safe havens for dialog, training inclusive leaders, and highlighting the benefits of diversity through education, advocacy, dialog and conflict resolution.
