Jewish-Christian Alliance

On December 18 – 22, 2016 The Herzl Institute held a conference on the topic:

Jewish-Christian Alliance: Reclaiming and Rebuilding Conservatism

This conference aimed to lay the groundwork for an alliance of Christians and Jews working together to restore the conservative movement and through it the civilization of the West by means of a revitalized encounter with our founding traditions, texts and ideas.

The conference focused on issues such as:

  • The conservative movement: Where did we go wrong?
  • Can there be conservatism without nationalism and religion?
  • Is Western democracy in decline?
  • The Bible and the Western political order
  • What is a conservative foreign policy?
  • Israel and the future of the West
  • Obstacles to Christian-Jewish collaboration
  • Toward a new Jewish-Christian agenda
