The National Conference of Christians and Jews, was formed in 1928 to facilitate cooperation between religions on civic and social justice issues and to promote understanding and mutual respect through education and dialogue. The roots of the conference's founding conference lay in the Committee on Good Will between Jews and Christians, which was founded circa 1923 within the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America. Dr Alfred Anthony, executive secretary of the Home Missions Council, and John W. Herrings, of the Federal Council's staff, provided early initiative and leadership for the committee. Accounts of its founding indicate that the committee was formed, in part, as a response to the resurgence and popularity of the Ku Klux Klan during the 1920s. The conference began as a series of meetings and discussions between a small group of supporters and interested individuals. Early backers of the idea included leaders of the Federal council of the Churches of Christ, B'nai B'rith, the Central Conference of Rabbis, and the Roman Catholic Church. In 1927, the decision to create the National Conference of Christians and Jews was formalized. Everett R. Clinchy was appointed to direct a program for the conference. In the fall of 1928, the first NCCJ seminar, created by Clinchy, was hosted by Columbia University. Clinchy also secured cooperation of three co-chairman for the new organization: Carlton J. H. Hayes as the Catholic co-chairman, Newton D Baker as the Protestant co-chairman; and Roger Williams Strauss (who was an early supporter of the Conference) as the Jewish co-chairman. The organization continues to work for social justice as the National Conference for Community and Justice. A time line of the history of the organization is available on the NCCJ website.
