Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The London Society for Jews and Christians was founded in 1927. It arose from an initiative of the Social Service Committee of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue and was one of the earliest inter-faith organisations in the country. Rabbi Israel Mattuck of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue was a founder member, alongside the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral.

The aims of the Society are to promote co-operation and understanding between Jews and Christians; to foster respect for differences of faith and to combat religious intolerance. The Society is still extant, co-chaired by a senior rabbi from the Liberal Jewish Synagogue and a senior clergyman from either Westminster Abbey or St Paul's Cathedral. Meetings are held at the Liberal Jewish Synagogue.
