Event Details

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.

Presenter: Dr. Amy-Jill Levine, E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies and Professor of Jewish Studies, Vanderbilt University Divinity School


Registration Cost: $20 includes a free copy of The Jewish Annotated New Testament co-edited by the presenter, Dr. Amy-Jill Levine. Payment can be made by check to the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod (305 E. Street NW Suite 300, Washington, DC 20001) with "Understanding Jesus" in the memo line or online with your registration. Lunch will be provided.

Co-sponsored by the ELCA Metro D.C. Synod and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington
