Episcopal Church mulls changes to Holy Week readings seen as antisemitic

April 14, 2022

When the Cathedral Church of St. Mark in Salt Lake City hosted dialogues last year on the Episcopal Church’s Sacred Ground curriculum, wrestling with issues of race and white privilege in the United States, it didn’t entirely resonate for Daniela Lee.

Lee, a student at Bexley Seabury Seminary at the University of Chicago, had been born and raised in Romania. What she needed to reckon with, she said, was her country’s history of antisemitism.

So Lee picked up a copy of the book “Jesus Wasn’t Killed by the Jews: Reflections for Christians in Lent,” edited by Jon M. Sweeney, and organized a series of conversations about it at the church.
