Not on my Watch
On November 9th and 10th, 1938, 267 synagogues were broken into, desecrated, set on fire, and destroyed. Another nearly 10,000 religious schools, Jewish cemeteries homes, and businesses were ransacked, defiled, and demolished. It became known as Kristallnacht—the night of broken glass—a reference to the shattered glass filling the streets.
In the days that followed more than 30,000 Jewish men were falsely imprisoned and sent to concentration camps. hundreds more were murdered in the streets. Reports of rape, assaults, and beatings were too numerous to count. The Jews were blamed for the attacks. They were told that they had brought it on themselves.
The world responded with shock, then passivity, and the atrocities were quickly forgotten. The church largely ignored and surrendered their moral authority to the Nazi Regime. The world shrugged. Antisemitism engulfed the nations, resulting in a time of primitive savagery where over 6,000,000 Jews were brutally and systematically exterminated.
Not on my Watch
On October 7th, 2023, over 1400 Jews were ruthlessly slaughtered in Israel. Families were savagely brutalized in their own homes. Young men, women, and children were hunted down and shot to death, assaulted, and raped. Countless others were burned alive, decapitated, tortured, and led off as hostages to be paraded through the streets of Gaza as Palestinian people cheered. Then they were hidden underground in tunnels like animals, trapped by cruel and heartless demonic entities we know as Hamas.
The world responded with shock. Then neutrality. Then they moved to “moral equivalency”, quickly forgetting the horrific brutality committed against innocent men, women, and children. Once again the blame shifted to Israel and the Jews. Israel and the Jewish victims are now considered the oppressors; Hamas and the Palestinian oppressors are proclaimed the victims. The UN along with most of the media is calling on Israel to bear the cost and responsibility of providing humanitarian aid and restoring peace to people who have vowed to destroy her.
Not on My Watch
As Christians, our fathers failed to stand up for our Jewish brothers and sisters in 1938, when the world went dark. What will our legacy be? Passive lip service to our love of life and truth? Will our pastors and Christian leaders again surrender their moral responsibilities to the enemies of Israel? Or will we as Christians say "Never Again", and stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel and the Jewish people? Are we, as children of God, redeemed by the King and Messiah of Israel, who gave His life for us, willing to live our lives to bless and guard the people and nation He loves and calls the apple of His Eye?
Join us for a roundtable discussion with a panel of seven Jewish and Christian leaders as we discuss the past, present, and future relationship between the Jewish people and the Nations. There will be testimonials from survivors of Kristallnacht and the Simchat Torah Massacre.
We will wrap up the time by sharing impactful ways for Christians to bring about change in their part of the world. Change that will begin pushing back the tide of moral equivalency and antisemitism. Change that will fight the darkness that is engulfing the world.
