Reconciliation: How One Denomination Has Come to Terms with its Anti-Judaic Heritage
7:30 pm Wednesday, March 18, 2009 In Seabury Auditorium at General Theological Seminary.
In 1994, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America issued a "Declaration to the Jewish Community" in which it repudiated Martin Luther's anti-Jewish writings, expressed its sorrow for their baleful effects in subsequent generations, and affirmed its "urgent desire to live out our faith in Jesus Christ with love and respect for the Jewish people." Dr. Sherman,who chaired the committee that prepared the Declaration, will discuss how it emerged, how it was received,
and how it has been followed up in the years since.
