American Jewish Committee Statement on Judaism, Pluralism and Peoplehood

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1996

In this statement, adopted by the National Council and Board of Governors of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), the AJC insists that whatever denominational differences divide the Jewish people, it is essential to ensure that the different denominations can work together to remain one people worldwide. In Israel, the AJC advocates official recognition of the Reform and Conservative movements. The AJC further suggests that the denominations work together to agree on conversion standards acceptable to all, so that lack of interdenominational marriage-eligibility does not cause a schism.
