CCJ is delighted to announce the appointment of Reverend Patrick Moriarty as joint Honorary Secretary on the Board of the Council of Christians and Jews. Patrick Moriarty is also the Head Teacher of the Jewish Community Secondary School.

Patrick is a passionate advocate for Jewish-Christian relations and views this as ‘something that I seek to live out in my life, in the unique position of being an ordained deacon in the Church of England and the Headteacher of a Jewish Secondary School.  Having lived all my life as an Anglican amongst the Jewish Community, studied and taught both Christianity and Judaism, and served as a leader of religious/educational institutions of both faiths, I have a honed sensitivity to what unites and separates these two theologies and communities, and a deep yearning for them to grow in appreciation, understanding and respect love for each other’.
