Responding to Anti-Semitism


Welcome!

This page explores the relationships between Orthodox Christianity and Judaism through the centuries and today. The resources featured here aim to address Anti-Semitism through a variety of interviews, readings, and videos, as well as an original miniseries of panel conversations moderated by Archdeacon John Chryssavgis.

We are delighted to offer this material to parishes and people of good will in the hope of bridge-building and peace-making within the religious and wider community.
