For centuries a gap has existed between Jews and Christians. This gap widened as a result of Christian anti-Semitism which left a trail of destruction and grief within the Jewish world. In the last five centuries, particularly since the 1860’s, the tables have begun to turn as Christians around the world began to reject age-old hatreds and replacement theology. Christians passionately came to believe that God is faithful to His covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and thereby would restore the Jewish people in their ancient Land, the culmination of this promise bearing literal fruit on May 14th 1948. Despite this modern-day miracle, fragments of division and mistrust still permeate in Jewish and Christian communities…with Christian anti-Semitism far from being dead. Since 1976, Bridges for Peace has sought to repair this gap by reaching out to Christians and the Jewish community in Israel and around the world.
