Mormon-Jewish Relations

The American Jewish community welcomes increased dialogue and understanding with our Mormon neighbors.  The Mormon community has made a significant effort to reach out to American Jews, hailing a long record of support for the Jewish state.  This support is warmly welcomed, too.  The relationship is not without strain.  There is a need to honor commitments made not to posthumously baptize Jews. The Jewish community relations should continue to engage the Mormon community and, where appropriate, form coalitions on matters of common concern.
