Reply To: How can you work to combat antisemitism and supersessionism in your own Christian community?

I find that it is very important to constantly fight against antisemitism because Jews are our older siblings and our traditions come from theirs. The Christian community needs to understand that and appreciate their traditions. My church at my college works with our local Hillel to host events. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn from each other and interact in a way that we most likely would not have done. There are a few clubs on my campus, such as the pro-Israel club, which are great to go to. I am part of my campus’ Young Americans for Freedom chapter, and we love to work with the Jewish groups because we hold many of the same values.
