The community in the city

In this episode, members talk about how the community interacts with the 
general public.

Margarita Voloj talks about how, as a teacher, she observed anti-Semitism among her pupils, and therefore decided to offer guided tours in the community. The chair of the community, Sharon Fehr, and Ruth Frankenthal (former Jewish chair of the CJZ) talk about their attitude to interreligious exchange, to which the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation (CJZ) in Münster is also dedicated. The episode shows how members are repeatedly confronted with anti-Semitism and with ignorance about Judaism, and yet are committed to dialogue in their city of Münster.
