In response to recent comments in the media about the Archbishop of Canterbury, CCJ’s Director Elizabeth Harris-Sawczenko has made the following statement:

‘The Archbishop of Canterbury is a trusted friend and supporter of the Jewish community and a consistently strong and leading voice in challenging antisemitism in contemporary Britain. As President of the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) Archbishop Welby supports CCJ’s work in building bridges between Christians and Jews throughout the UK through our national programmes. Archbishop Justin Welby is particularly supportive of CCJ’s Holocaust education programme for Christian clergy and Holocaust commemoration.’
