Kristallnacht

November 14, 2012 7:00 PM

St. Joseph’s University Institue for Jewish-Catholic Relations will host Rabbi Dr. Mark Winer for a talk on “The Lessons of Kristallnacht” at McShain Hall.

Kristallnacht, or "The Night of Broken Glass," was a planned series of attacks on Jewish synagogues and businesses in Nazi Germany that erupted on the night of November 9-10, 1938.  Many historians date this rampage as the beginning of the Shoah (Holocaust).  In our own time, acts of terrorism couched in religious rhetoric have intensified feelings of interreligious hostility. Rabbi Winer, drawing on his extensive experience in promoting understanding among Jews, Christians, and Muslims, will reflect on the interreligious attitudes among these three traditions today.
