High Holiday greeting from the ICCJ President Liliane Apotheker.


Rosh haShana 5784. High Holiday greeting from the ICCJ President Liliane Apotheker.

For us who are committed to dialogue between Christians and Jews, these are particularly difficult times. Jewish communities and their leaders are torn between their traditional perception of Israel, the narratives they hold true about the ethics and the moral standing of their religion, and the disturbing reality that now confronts us. For many it is difficult to relinquish these traditional perspectives and support the fight for democracy alongside the myriads of Israelis who stand up to their government.

ICCJ President's Greetings for Pesach and Easter 2023

This year again Passover and Easter are almost concomitant. That means that we can celebrate the gift of our feasts at the same time, rejoicing for ourselves and for others.
So, what will this year’s matza taste like? What “affliction“ will it designate? What freedom will we long for? The Hebrew word “Taam” connotates both taste and meaning.
