At the very beginning of our activities surrounding the 500th anniversary of the Reformation to be observed in 2017, we want to address a sad part of our heritage: the occasionally tragic relationship between Lutherans and Jews. You are invited to join the Metro D.C. Synod and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington for:
Understanding Jesus Means Understanding Judaism
Thursday, December 8, 2016
9:30 a.m.-2 p.m
Emmanuel Lutheran Church
7730 Bradley Blvd, Bethesda, MD 20817
In a day of study that will include local rabbis, we will have the opportunity to relearn and reaffirm what it means to say that Jesus was a Jew. We expect an opportunity to make a public statement that repudiates Luther’s late, hateful anti-Jewish writings.
