This fall, Paul Mojzes, Ph.D. and Alan L. Berger, Ph.D. will embark on a four-week conversation on Jews and Christians exploring aspects of this complex changing asymmetrical relationship with the major emphasis on how it was impacted by the Holocaust.
They will examine various theological reflections about the meaning of the Holocaust and other genocides and their effect on post-Holocaust religious reflections and behavior.
The topics that this course will cover includes the following:
- From enmity and tragic persecution to mutual respect and cooperation
- Impact of the Enlightenment and the Holocaust
- Post-Holocaust theological responses to the Holocaust
- Current challenges to Jewish-Christian relations in the age of nationalism
