Virtual Program

Co-hosted by the Washington National Cathedral and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Building upon the dedication of the Elie Wiesel carving at the Washington National Cathedral, this afternoon symposium will explore the long entangled history of antisemitism and Christianity, its implications during the Holocaust, and some of the ways that contemporary theologians, faith leaders, and educators address these legacies today. The workshop is open to anyone interested in learning more about this history. We especially welcome faith leaders, professionals, and educators from all religious backgrounds. 

After an introduction by Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin, Sr., Canon Missioner and Minister of Equity and Inclusion at the Washington National Cathedral and remarks by Dr. Rebecca Carter-Chand, Director of the Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, this symposium will feature a panel discussion among leading scholars and participants will be invited to participate in a Q&A. 

This program is part of a continuing partnership between the Washington National Cathedral and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Stay tuned to learn more about a follow-up program in the Spring.

Panel Speakers:

  • Dr. Philip Cunningham: Professor of Theology and Director of the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations, St. Joseph’s University
  • Dr. Benjamin Sax: Jewish Scholar, Institute for Islamic, Jewish, and Christian Studies
  • Dr. Katherine Sonderegger: The William Meade Professor of Systematic Theology, Virginia Theological Seminary
