Adult Forums – Fellowship Hall

Antisemitism: the World’s Oldest Hate Crime

Recent events show antisemitism has raised its ugly head in our society. On the first three Sunday of February, join Neil Leifert, the Director of the Center for Holocaust and Jewish Studies at Penn State Harrisburg, as he explains its origins. Dr. Russell Sullivan, Pastor of Pine Street, will conclude the series on February 23.

February 2 – “Overview of Antisemitism” – What are the origins of Christian and-Judaism? How id this develop into racial antisemitism in the 19th century? As we journey into the 20th century, we’ll note the significance of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the work of Henry Ford and his antisemitic publication, The International Jew.

February 9 – “The Jewish Enemy” – Nazi propaganda vilified “World Jewry” as a “clear and present danger” to German survival. What was their motive for genocide and the Holocaust?

February 16 – “Lingering Ideology” – Jewish conspiracies and the Holocaust denial abound in our world, and antisemitism masks in the guise of anti-Zionism. How can we understand these phenomena?

February 23 – “Does God Only Have One Blessing?” – Dr. Sullivan will propose that we have read the relationship between Christians and Jews incorrectly for centuries. Can we read the Christian story in a new way? How can we counteract antisemitism?

History

Since 1858, Pine Street has been a powerful force for good in the Harrisburg community. From feeding the hungry and homeless of Harrisburg to exalting God through worship, music, and the related arts, the ministries of the church are as strong today as ever.

Pine Street Presbyterian Church was founded in 1858 as a group of forty-two members led by James McCormick, Jr. They erected an elegant Gothic Revival church designed by Luther M. Simon at Third and Pine streets and laid the cornerstone in 1859. Worship services during the first year were held in various places around town, including the Senate chamber of the Capitol.
