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?

Our Staff

We are a diverse and dynamic community of believers who are dedicated to worshiping God, increasing our faith through Christian education, and serving one another and our community.
