History/Biographical The Canadian Council of Christians and Jews (CCCJ) began when several people met in 1933 to discuss inter-racial relations. From a small committee they eventually grew into an official organization in 1947. Religiously motivated, the CCCJ's clerical, educational and business community members aim to combat antisemitism, promote inter-faith dialogue, bring different ethnic groups together, and analyze, moderate and eliminate prejudice. Based on similar groups in America and Britain, their methods include folk and music festivals, student exchange programs, lectures, films, workshops, dances, radio and television spots, and the sponsoring of Brotherhood week. The CCCJ has a human relations award, and publishes extensive educational material for school, business, youth, men's and women's groups and labour-management organizations that it deals with. Run with the help of volunteers, the CCCJ has chapters across Canada, though it was started in Montreal and Toronto.
