For a basic introduction to anti-Semitism past and present, the first place to turn is now Rabbi Evan Moffic's First the Jews."

--Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, Celebrated Author and Chief Historian of National Museum of American Jewish History
"Rabbi Moffic has written a book every Christian should read. An essential guide to making sense of the painful history and present reality of anti-Semitism. This is a truly important book."
-Adam Hamilton, Senior Pastor, The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection


"How far the institutional church has strayed from following the rebel-rabbi Jesus! Evan shines light on the need for Christian and Jewish brothers and sisters to come together against this rising tide of hate."
-Michael Slaughter, author, speaker, pastor emeritus of Ginghamsburg Church


Are we in danger of experiencing another Holocaust?


News reports of and statistics about defaced synagogues and death threats against community centers are on the rise around the world. A rise in anti-Semitism from the right side of the political spectrum has been accompanied by a different kind of anti-Semitism from parts of the left revolving around the state of Israel.


Rabbi Evan Moffic provides a compelling discussion to help Christians understand this dangerous rise by working to address tough questions including:

Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history? What is different between anti-Semitism in the past versus today's culture? How, and in what forms, may it be carried out in the future?
Focusing on the events since September 11, 2001, Rabbi Evan Moffic considers the twenty-first century anti-Semitism and the historical pattern of discrimination to other groups that often follows new waves of discrimination against Jewish communities. With a hopeful and collaborative tone, he suggests actions for all people of faith to combat words and actions of hate while lifting up practical ways Christians and Jews can work together.


First the Jews offers new insights and unparalleled perspectives on some of the most recent, pressing developments in the contemporary world.


Includes chapter responses from Amy-Jill Levine, Mike Slaughter, Justine Coleman, and Imam Hassan Selim.
