Gibraltar Jews host interfaith group

Gibraltar’s Jewish community has invited a leading interfaith group from the UK to the British overseas territory.

Representatives from the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) will arrive on the rock on June 18 on a familiarisation visit.

“In the context of our centuries of religious diversity, Gibraltar is blessed with excellent relations between Christians and Jews. Jews have lived in Gibraltar in tranquility since the British landing. There are some local Jewish families with a genealogy dating back to the early 1700s,” according to  a statement from the community, an EJC affiliate.

“The local inter-faith co-existence is almost exceptional in the world. The purpose of the visit is to enable the delegation from the CCJ to see for itself the magnificent local cohesion,” the statement added.
