When the Seelisberg Conference that is known largely for its “Ten Theses” and for the founding of the International Council of Christians and Jews (ICCJ), took place from July 30 through August 5 in 1947, Europe was devastated by WW2 and all its horrific consequences. In this context, Jewish and Christian theologians gathered in the small town in Switzerland for an "International Emergency Conference on Antisemitism". The courage displayed by the participants must inspire us all to pursue our work in particular in these trying times.

Presenting the Passion … without blaming “the Jews”

In collaboration with its US member organization, the Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations (CCJR), the ICCJ publishes a video series on Jesus' passion.
Jesus’ Passion – arrested, sentenced to death, crucified – is retold through readings in Christian services during Holy Week. Tragically, over the centuries, these retellings have caused enmity between Christians and Jews and have even led to murderous violence. Such sinful consequences are contrary to the Good News of Christ.
