Tracing the Roots of Modern Antisemistm
International Holocaust Remembrance Day Commemoration
For many leaders of the early Christian Church, understanding Jews and Jewishness was an important part of the effort to forge doctrines and ideas that not only shaped the Church, but also explained the world in which it existed. Many centuries later, is it possible to trace modern manifestations of antisemitism to the ideas of these early Christian thinkers? This program will explore ideas emanating from the early Christian church, how these ideas were transmitted across time and cultures, and the ways that they manifest themselves in our time.
Panel discussion moderated by Rob Leikind, Director, AJC New England
Speakers: Professor Deeana Klepper (Boston University, Elie Wiesel Center); Rabbi Noam Marans (AJC Director of Interreligious and Intergroup Relations)
Welcoming remarks from Ambassador Meron Reuben, Consul General of Israel to New England, and Prof. Michael Zank, Director of the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies.
