The partners of CJUI support the ideals and goals expressed in the great founding documents ofAmerica. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,Libertyand the pursuit of Happiness." The actions of CJUI are guided by these principles in pursuit of the following objectives.

(e.) To protect and promote the historical record of the ancient Jewish connection to thelandofIsraeland to the City ofJerusalem, as the heart of Judaism. To protect the integrity of all Christian and Jewish sites in a unitedJerusalemunderIsrael’s auspices and to protect the integrity of all Jewish and Christian sites throughout the Biblical land underIsrael’s auspices, so that access to all is secure and respectful.
(f.) To promote the freedom of worship for people of all faiths without violating the rights or safety of others.
(g.) To identify and name all individuals and groups that perpetrate evil and unjust acts.. To create an effective alert system to inform and to educate the community to take actions against anti-Israel groups.
We support Israel - her right to exist as an independent, undivided nation, in peace and security. We accept and respect all persons, regardless of faith, who support that right.
We are not affiliated with any political party, either in the United States or Israel; nor do we support any particular strategy or direction that we think Israel "should" take - that is up to her people and her democratically elected government. We do support a united Jerusalem as now exists, however, as that is the only way to guarantee access to persons of all faiths.
As anti-Zionism and anti-semitism are intrinsically related, we also work against anti-semitism in all of its forms.
