Jews and Christians must work together for justice and peace. Jews and Christians, each in their own way, recognize the unredeemed state of the world as reflected in the persistence of persecution, poverty, and human degradation, and misery. Although justice and peace are finally God's, our joint efforts, together with those of other faith communities, will help bring the kingdom of God for which we hope and long. Separately and together, we must work to bring justice and peace to our world.

In this enterprise, we are guided by the vision of the prophets of Israel:"It shall come to pass in the end of days that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established at the top of the mountains and beexalted above the hills, and the nations shall flow unto it . . . and manypeoples shall go and say, 'Come ye and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob and He will teach us of His ways and we will walk in his paths'" (Isaiah 2:2-3).
