Contemporary Jewish-Christian Relations: What Are the Challenges and Opportunities?

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Centuries of anti-Jewish ideology and pogroms in Europe preceded the Holocaust.

After the end of World War II, numerous Christian denominations and organizations embarked on self-critical endeavors to refine, redefine, revise, and refute previous teachings on the Jewish people and the Jewish tradition. Where does this take us and where can it lead?

With Dr. Jesper Svartvik, Visiting Professor, Boston College
Moderated by Prof. Marc Brettler, Duke University

8 pm Israel / 1 pm ET

The lecture is a part of “Jews and Christians through the Centuries: Communities in Conflict and Contact”, a series from the National Library of Israel.
