The Rossing Center’s 2023 Annual Report on “Attacks on Christians in Israel and East Jerusalem”

In recent years, there has been an increase in attacks on Christians, and with the sharp rise in cases, we realized we had to do something. Last year, we began collecting data, and we are trying to understand it, hoping that with more reports and information from the field, we can identify the factors contributing to the rise in the number of incidents, as well as characterize the attacks and attackers and place the attacks within a broader context. Our goal is to generate ideas and solutions to address the phenomenon. 

At the conference, Hana Bendcowsky, Director of the Jewish-Christian Relations program at the Rossing Center, presented the findings, and Bishop Dr. Sani Ibrahim Azar from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land provided a Christian-Palestinian perspective on the challenges faced by Christians in Jerusalem. John Munayer discussed the questions and issues that arise for Christians from abroad, Palestinian Christians, and Zionist Christians in relation to violence against Christians in the Holy Land.
