The American religious landscape is continually evolving. There are growing Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Sikh, and other communities.

In addition, xenophobia has complicated life for minority communities. The Jewish community relations field should engage diverse religious communities and, where appropriate, form coalitions on matters of common concern.
