The Middle East is the cradle of the three Abrahamic religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Today, the Christian population is rapidly decreasing due to systematic persecution and mass migrations abroad. Very few Jewish people live in the region outside of the Jewish State of Israel. These realities are alarming for the future of religious pluralism in the region.
April 24 is Holocaust Remembrance Day, when we remember the slaughter of 6 million Jews by the Nazi Reich. In pledging "Never Again," it is appropriate that we seek to preserve the mosaic of religious minorities in the cradle of their heritage.
Please join The Philos Project for a networking reception and panel presentation on vanished Jewish heritage in the Middle East. Panelists will include Jason Guberman of the American Sephardi Federation, Mina Abdelmalak, a Coptic activist, and Robert Nicholson, Executive Director of The Philos Project.
The Philos Project is generously providing free entry to YPFP members for its event "A Vanished People: Jewish Heritage in the Greater Middle East." Normal entry is $10. Members may RSVP by logging into their accounts.
The Philos Project is the network hub for leaders and future leaders who are committed to promoting positive Christian engagement in the Middle East. Its mission includes:
- Proclaiming friendship with those in the region who support liberty and justice for all peoples;
- Reviving an intellectually rigorous Christian approach to foreign policy, especially as it relates to the Middle East;
- Educating Christians on the theological, historical, and political issues surrounding Israel and the Jewish people; and
- Empowering the church to advocate for real peace in tangible ways.
