“The lecture was a reassurance to me that Jews are not alone in their fight against antisemitism,” said Benjy Schwartz ’16, one of the students who attended the lecture. “The former Archbishop made me realize that interfaith cooperation and support can accomplish much more good in the world than any single religious group could ever accomplish independently.”
