Tikkun Olam: The Legacy and Future of Jewish – Christian Relations
Fifth Annual Lutheran Studies Conference at PLU – Thursday, September 24, 2015
The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the execution of German and other European Lutherans who resisted the National Socialist regime. Such an anniversary invites the university and larger community to consider a relationship marked by polemic, persecution, tolerance, and the possibility of growing friendship around a common cause. Might the crises of the contemporary moment unite Christians with Jews in tikkun olam, in efforts to bring healing to the world?
