Anti‐Semitism is a very light sleeper and there is still work for the Council of Christians and Jews, founded in 1942, to perform. A particular issue for Christians at the moment is balancing concern for the safety of Israel with sympathy for Palestinian suffering. Apart from Israel, there is the key question of how far the New Testament itself incites anti‐Semitism through certain of its attitudes and statements. There is a major obligation on those who have responsibility for teaching and preaching the Christian message to avoid even implicit anti‐Judaism and to ensure that statements that can be interpreted in an anti‐Semitic way are properly understood in their context. The Roman Catholic Church has been a pioneer in giving instruction on how Christianity should be preached in relation to Judaism in such a way as to avoid the obvious pitfalls.
