Two Paths to One God: Jews and Christians Exploring Holy Difference

October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Wednesdays, September 30, October 7, 14, 21, & 28 ● 7:00 PM – 8:45 PM via Zoom ● Taught by Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum and Rev. Elizabeth Riley
Fifty years ago, the Christian world revolutionized its relationship with the Jewish people by rejecting the teaching of contempt, the belief that Jews were to be blamed for the death of Jesus. This led to a dramatic decrease in Christian antisemitism. But, in recent decades, antisemitism has once again been on the rise both in our local community, and globally. In our age of polarization, the profound transformation of Jewish-Christian relations can serve as a model for all of us.

  • What led to the teaching of contempt in the first place?
  • What has harm has come from anti-Semitism? How is it reemerging?
  • What is the work we still have to do to create a more compassionate relationship?
  • How is it possible for Jews and Christians to feel passionately about our own religion without denigrating each other’s traditions?
  • Can there be more than one truth about God?
  • How can a deepening understanding between Jews and Christians create opportunities for us to work together to build a better world?

Open to anyone who was not part of our First Cohort to take this course in January 2021, $50 per person.
