B'nai Shalom Children of Peace .org is a world-wide organization, originating in UTAH in 1967. Gatherings in other locations are under the direction of the organization's Presidency and Board of Directors.
We seek to bring together members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who have Jewish heritage or who are interested in the cultural and spiritual similarities and differences between the Mormon and Jewish faiths, for greater understanding. And we guide to resources for the unique genealogical challenges of Mormons with Jewish heritage. ...More information about the Organization.
