New ‘Catholics Against Antisemitism’ coalition promises solidarity with Jewish neighbors

A new coalition of influential Catholic leaders is promising to combat antisemitism and to promote friendship with the American Jewish community amid the devastation of the Israel-Hamas war.

It’s the right pro-life thing to do,” Mary Eberstadt, the Panula Chair in Christian Culture at the Catholic Information Center and senior research fellow at the Faith & Reason Institute, told Our Sunday Visitor of the Coalition of Catholics Against Antisemitism (CCAAS).

“In a moment when many believers are demoralized and wondering what the Faith means now, the Coalition of Catholics Against Antisemitism affirms a powerful answer,” she added. “Like Jews, Catholics love life. And we stand for life from conception to natural death — including, and emphatically, the lives of our elder brothers and sisters in faith.”
