Shared Values
In Policy Center

Washington (JTA) — Empha-
sizing shared values and the de-
sire to create a more civil, "moral
society,' a coalition of conserva-
tive Jews and Christians has
formed a new Washington pub-
lic policy center.
"Our goal is to transcend and
heal divisions, those between
Jews and Christians, Republi-
cans and Democrats, liberals and
conservatives, and to seize those
shared values in public policies
that are unfortunately being ig-
nored and shunned because of
the polarization marking our dif-
ferences," said Rabbi Yechiel
Eckstein, founder and president
of the new Center for Judeo-
Christian Values in America.
Building on the 13-year-old In-
ternational Fellowship of Chris-
tians and Jews, which has
focused primarily on support for
Israel, the new organization will
make policy recommendations
primarily on domestic issues.
Speaking at a news conference
announcing the center, Sens.
Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., and
Dan Coats, R-Ind., who will serve
as co-chairmen of the organiza-
tion, both stressed a need to find
common religious ground in or-
der to establish moral standards
and a greater sense of personal
accountability in society.
The center's director, Chris
Gersten, said the office would
open early next year.
Specific policy proposals have
not yet been put forth, though
the center's leadership said it
sees as a starting point Coats'
"Project For American Renew-
al," a 19-bill initiative that sug-
gests ways the government can
strengthen families and com-
munities through tax credits and
