JNS.orgA group of 40 Catholic school educators traveled to Washington, DC, in late July as part of a program to learn more about the history of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust.

The Eileen Ludwig Greenland National Bearing Witness Summer Institute is a long-running program sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Catholic Educational Association, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and Georgetown University’s Program for Jewish Civilization.

Over a five-day period, the program seeks to educate participants about the history of anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, and recent changes in Catholic-Jewish relations.

“Bearing Witness is a unique program in its partnership between the Catholic and Jewish communities and our joint commitment to changing the dynamic between our communities so that the past does not serve as a model for our future engagement,” Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director, said in a statement.

“In working together to understand and teach the difficult history of anti-Semitism and the impact of this history on Catholic-Jewish relations historically and today, Bearing Witness is a powerful example of how we can work together to shape a better future,” Foxman said.

Since 1996, ADL’s Bearing Witness program has trained more than 1,700 Catholic school educators.

  • GEE..I WISH I PROOF READ MY COMMENT ABOVE,
    AND english is my first language….
    lolol
    well I am sorry for the grammer,
    I do hope every one goyeem included get the message…..
    YOU OWE US AN APOLOGY FOR ALL THE HORRORS YOUR 2000 YEARS HAS DONE TO US.

    LEAVE JEWS ALONE!
    We are the light to the nations.
    You dont need any batteries for this light.
    You just need to learn what the very same G-D that jesux originally prayed to before he prayed to himself,,,,
    what does G-D wants from YOU non JEWS.

    • ASK A KNOWLEDGABLE JEW
      WHAT DOES THE ”ONE G-D” WANT FROM YOU GOYEEM.

  • TRAIN THEM IN T HE SPANISH INQUISITIONS the crusades, the countless JEW KILLING HUNT FOR 2000 YEARS…
    and now there are laws against murder so JEWS have to defend against misisonaries seductions deceptive luring of innocent jews into idol worship.

    To me its hilarious that ALL xtians claim to know TORAH, SOMNE EVEN CLAIM TO KNOW TORAH better then any JEW and stand by a man written numerous gospels also claiming to be the replacement jew, and these ‘scholars of JUDAISM have to be ‘enlightened to the horrors done to JEWS THROUGH OUT THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THEIR CHURCH.

    I am not against this education but I find for the most times these so called ‘educators only use this new information to formulate new twists to support their jesu agenda. Jews ”needing” to ”prove” to the xtians of the horrors DONE TO JEWS BY THEIR CHURCH must remember that their doctrine is xtian believe in order to bring jesux again for the second time all JEWSS must go to ISRAEL. The xtian agenda of zionism is a selfish xtian agenda.

    ASK THESE xtian zionists ”DO YOU AGREE THAT ISRAEL IS FOR THE JEWS BY THE JEWS AND ALL JEWS SHOULD PRAY AND SERVE EXACTLY AS MOSES DELIEVERED THE ONE G-DS WORDS TO US AND NO OTHER AND THE JEWS BELIEF SHOULD NOT BE ATTACHED OR INFLUENCED BY ANY OTHER BELIEF?

    ASK THAT QUESTION……
    TELL ME WHAT THEIR ANSWER IS AFTER THEY TURN THEIR BACK ON YOU WHILE WALKING AWAY.
    Just remember to duck from their swords and spears.
