Resolution on Jewish-Christian Relations

The LWF Assembly resolves as follows:   

  1. To call upon LWF member churches and theological institutions to develop further theological reflection on Jewish-Christian relations from a Lutheran perspective in a global context;
  2. To encourage LWF member churches to explore the possibility of beginning or furthering dialogues with Jewish partners both at the academic and grassroots level to foster a deeper understanding of each other’s communities; and 
  3. To call upon the LWF Communion Office to further dialogue, engagement and collaboration with Jewish partners such as the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations (IJCIC) on topics of mutual interest by the next Assembly.
