In today’s episode, we’re discussing interfaith advocacy and specifically, the collaborative efforts between Catholics and Jews. Steve Hunegs, the executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) joins us in the studio.
The JCRC is a great partner with the Minnesota Catholic Conference. Together the Catholic Conference and JCRC are part of the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition which also includes faith leaders from the Islamic Faith and Protestant Christian denominations.
