For long centuries, India has been the home for Jews, and they have imbibed the Indian culture beautifully. Paradoxically, even after their long stay in India, they maintained their identity. As Rabbi Ezekiel Isaac Malekar, Head Priest of the Synagogue Judah Hyam Hall New Delhi, describes it,”Israel is in my heart, India is in my blood.” It is said that India is perhaps the only country in the world in which, through the long centuries, Jews have dwelt in complete security and have always been treated honourably in the social structure of the land.READ MORE

One of the main groups of religious people that Jesus had to deal with were the Pharisees. Jesus had several encounters with them, and He frequently socialised with them. In fact, He and the Pharisees had a number of religious convictions in common. Nevertheless, at times, He was also very confrontational in his approach to them. Particularly their interpretation of the religious law brought them into conflict with Jesus. But in His love for them, Jesus invited them to an intimate relationship with God the Father.READ MORE

In September 2021, the decision was made to focus our EEA communications work in the first half of 2022 on the theme “East meets West – West meets East”. The aim was to create a platform for dialogue with our newsletters, particularly between Western and Eastern Europe, where we could hear one another, learn from each other and celebrate that together we are the Body of Christ in Europe.Read more
When my parents and I came to Germany in 1976, I had no idea how much coming from Russia would shape my life and my identity. In Russia, we were called fascists and Germans. Here in Germany, I heard in the schoolyard: “Those are the Russians!”. The few Russian-German children in elementary school stood out because of their language, clothing, and behavior. We spoke German with an accent and made many mistakes.Read more

The Alliance Week of Prayer already took place in the Czech Republic in the interwar period and even survived the communist regime. This prayer initiative was one of the few occasions when Christians of different denominations would meet and start the New Year together in prayer.Read more
Conflicts between West and East are manifold. They are not always well-founded. And it is not unusual that semantic problems lie at the root.
