75th Anniversary of the Seelisberg Conference

In 1947, Jewish and Christian theologians gathered in Seelisberg, Switzerland, for an International Emergency Conference on Antisemitism. It was a critical step in the evolving work of Jewish-Christian dialogue and is considered the founding event of the International Council of Christians and Jews (ICCJ).

    To mark the 75th anniversary of the Seelisberg Conference and ICCJ's foundation, special editions of the ICCJ newsletter are being issued every two weeks till the 5th of August 2022, each with reflections on Seelisberg.
