Presbyterians for Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Relations (PCJCMR) responds the to “Steadfast Hope: The Palestinian Quest for Just Peace”

Presbyterians Concerned for Jewish, Christian and Muslim Relations (PCJCMR) was first founded in the 1950’s with a focus on building positive relationships between Christians and Jews. In 2010, the scope of the organization was expanded to include concern for positive relationships with Muslims. It is a group of members, ministers, and congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA). In May, 2010, PCJCMR studied the training materials entitled “Steadfast Hope: The Palestinian Quest for Just Peace” that was prepared by the Israel/Palestine Mission Network (IPMN) of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and concluded that because of significant errors of fact and omission, the training material has such an imbalance as to make it inappropriate for approved use by members and congregations of the PCUSA.
