An International Christian Leadership Seminar on the Holocaust, Anti-Semitism and Israel
April 12 – 20, 2015
Place: Yad Vashem, Jerusalem

The Holocaust is a defining event in human history, which generated a credibility crisis of major proportions in our most basic assumptions about the nature of mankind, of society, of the modern state, and of our responsibility as individuals to take a stand against unjust suffering of innocent people everywhere. These universal questions, and many others, touch upon the very foundations of civilization and even now, over sixty years since the end of World War II, we have not yet come to terms with the implications of this event. The Holocaust has therefore become a compelling challenge for concerned individuals all over the world.
Yad Vashem is best placed to help these committed individuals to meet this challenge in an open, honest, and professional environment. Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies is offering senior pastors and ministry leaders a unique educational experience. During a weeklong seminar in Israel the select group of about 20 participants only will experience world-class lectures, moving Holocaust survivor testimonies and an introduction to Israel through trips to key sites and monuments. Special emphasis will be placed on Christian theology as background to modern anti-Semitism. The language of instruction will be English.
The week of the seminar includes Yom HaShoah, the Holocaust Memorial Day, which enables the participants to experience this unique event at Yad Vashem.FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Christian.Friends@yadvashem.org.il www.yadvashem.org Tel: +972-2-644-3804 From U.S. 011-972-2-644-3804 Fax: +972-2-644-3429
