Antisemitism has been in the headlines in recent years in the UK. Allegations of antisemitism have rocked major political parties and incidents on the streets and online are at historically high levels. The last two years have also seen, tragically, the loss of life in American and German synagogues in violent attacks perpetrated by individuals motivated by hate. This resource arose out of a concern on the part of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) and the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) to help ordinary Christians understand these issues, as well as wider ones related to Christian faith and practice.
Connected Communities: Churches Responding to Prejudice Against Jews and Judaism is a resource for Christians to learn more about Jewish-Christian dialogue, antisemitism, and anti-Judaism. The intent is to grow appreciation for the connections that have linked Christians and Jews for the last two thousand years, to equip local churches to engage in Jewish-Christian dialogue, and to cultivate esteem for Judaism in Irish and British churches.
