Rise in fortunes for Christian-Jewish ties
Council of Christians and Jews' chief executive David Gifford is encouraged by a five per cent growth in membership over the past two years.
"We have been pushing local branches to look at increasing their members," he said. "People are being more pro-active than they have been in the past."
CCJ recently held a national meeting for branch representatives for the first time in four years at which plans were discussed for its 70th anniversary in 2012.
