The recent phenomenon of mass Christian support for Israel is well publicized. But what motivates these Christians? Do they view Judaism as a legimate religion? Don't all Christians believe that the church has replaced Judaism? After all the centuries of Christian anti-Semitism, do we really want their friendship? Isn't Christianity considered idolatry by Jewish law?

These questions and more are on the minds of Jews living with this new reality. Join Rabbi Pesach Wolicki, Associate Director of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding & Cooperation (CJCUC), in understanding the world of Christian Zionism, the monumental changes that are currently unfolding in Christian attitudes towards Jews and Judaism, and how this all fits in to a fuller Jewish religious perspective on the modern State of Israel.
