Today, the nexus between Judaism and Christianity marks a high point in the history of Jewish-Christian relations.

But this was not always the case. Since the C2nd CE, mainstream Christianity was resolutely anti-Jewish.
The myth of Jews as Christ-killers fuelled anti-Judaism and antisemitism through the Christian centuries and it was not until after the Holocaust that the Church embarked on a path towards reconciliation with the Jewish people.
In this short course we will trace the trajectory of Jewish-Christian relations from a position of conflict to one of coexistence.

For more than a decade, Paul Forgasz was principal of the secondary (grades 7-12) campus of Mt Scopus College, a large K-12 Jewish day school in Melbourne, Australia. He also lectured in Bible and Jewish history at Monash University’s Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation and taught about Jewish education, as well as school leadership, in the university’s Faculty of Education. Since 2010, Paul has also curated and led Jewish study tours to various European destinations under the auspices of the Jewish Museum of Australia. For most of his professional life, Paul has also been actively involved in Jewish-Christian dialogue and he also works closely with teachers in the Catholic education sector.
