The Holocaust- 9/2 Roots of Anti-Judaism o Term: anti-Semitism – what is the distinction? o How Christianity viewed Judaism as an inferior/dangerous religion There were geographic reasons even before the Christians came  along for disliking the Jews However, most people at this time managed to respect other faiths  and incorporated aspects from one faith into their own Pagan people observed elements of the Sabbath They didn’t make sacrifices to idols, which set them apart Also their views on sacrificing animals (keeping Kosher) There was also a lot of attraction to Judaism, people were  converting because they liked the monotheism o Matthew::70-80 His blood be on us and on our children.” The Jews asked for not only them to suffer for their  actions, but for many generations to come as well Most important passage in the text This text was read on Good Friday for a long time, until the  Vatican wanted to make peace with the Jews and remove  anti-Jewish sentiments from the liturgy o This meant for Jews that Good Friday was Bad  Friday Christians would come out of their churches  and attack Jews for crucifying Jesus, so  Jews would try to stay indoors on this day

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
