STATEMENT FROM THE DEAN OF SOUTHWELL
WEDNESDAY 13 MARCH 2019
The December 2018/January 2019 printed edition of Southwell Leaves magazine included an article which in reflecting on the suffering of Palestinians used antisemitic language.
As Dean I apologise unreservedly. Mindful of the ways in which Christians have contributed to antisemitism throughout history, the Cathedral condemns antisemitism, recognising the pain and fear it causes the Jewish community. I have accepted the offer from the Council of Christians and Jews to deliver training on antisemitism to relevant Cathedral staff and volunteers and so enable a clearer understanding which addresses and prevents antisemitism.
The Cathedral values its partnership with the Anglican diocese of Jerusalem and St. George’s Cathedral, and we will continue to work and pray for peace and justice in Israel/Palestine, but always within the parameters of respect for all people.
The Very Revd Nicola Sullivan
