Christine Darg wept and no doubt along with other Christians were doing cartwheels at the release of a statement on 3rd December 2015 by the CJCUC. The CJCUC headed by Rabbi Riskin have their fingers in the pies of almost every interfaith endeavour across the Christian spectrum of belief from the likes of the initiatives of the Roman Catholic’s Domus Galilaeae, evangelical Christian groups such as the ICEJ and so called messianic Judaism.
In the guise of ‘charitable’ cooperation in the common goal of easing ‘suffering’ we have nothing to fear apparently:
Now that the Catholic Church has acknowledged the eternal Covenant between G-d and Israel, we Jews can acknowledge the ongoing constructive validity of Christianity as our partner in world redemption, without any fear that this will be exploited for missionary purposes. (point 3 of the Orthodox Rabbinic Statement on Christianity)
According to Christine Darg we have a common enemy:
You see, even in the highly demoralizing terrorism coming out of San Bernardino, California, God is bringing good. People of faith are rising up to say “this city belongs to God.” Inevitably, the peoples of the Book, Jews and Christians, must come closer together because we have a common enemy.
When will we Jews understand we also have a Holocaust of love also?
Just to give you a flavour of what the CJCUC are up to here is a fortaste:
CJCUC Improving Christian Relations or Destroying Jewish Foundations?
JewishIsrael has been closely monitoring the continued radical interfaith activities associated with the Center for Jewish Christian Understanding and Cooperation (CJCUC), founded by the Chief Rabbi of Efrat, Shlomo Riskin.
A comprehensive report, as well as a statement fromJewishIsrael Rabbinic Director, Rabbi Sholom Gold, will be forthcoming in response to the following endeavors:
- The new “Orthodox Rabbinic Statement on Christianity” which endorses such positons as “Jesus brought a double goodness to the world… he strengthened the Torah of Moses majestically… “.
- CJCUC’s active fundraising to purchase a facility for a missionary church in Jerusalem.
- CJCUC’s participation in and promotion of events with personalities who directly seek to evangelize Jews.
- CJCUC’s collaboration with a controversial Catholic advocacy group on funding Christian schools loyal to the Palestinian Authority.
- CJCUC’s cooperation with a Christian University involved in anti-Israel activities and missionary work.
- CJCUC’s radical reinterpretation of the intentions and writings of Rav Joseph B. Soloveitchik, Z”L.
- CJCUC’s continued promotion of mixed Christian-Jewish prayer events.
