Archbishop Naumann interviews Gavriella Geller, Executive Director of the Kansas City Jewish Community Relations Bureau / American Jewish Committee.   They discuss how Catholics and people of good will can be more aware of and confront anti-semitism. “I met Gavriella last Fall when I had the privilege of touring the Union Station exhibit: Auschwitz: Not Long Ago, Not Far Away, and then participating in a conversation with other KC area clergy about the problem of antisemitism.  Sadly, in January we were all reminded of the reality of how Jew’s don’t feel safe to go to worship, when a gunman took hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville Texas.  So, I invited Gavriella to come help us better understand the growing problem of antisemitism and what we as Catholics can do.”  Deacon Bill Scholl
