About the author (1984)

Geoffrey Wigoder, Dr. Geoffrey Wigoder was the editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia Judaica. Since 1984, he served as the Israel delegate on the International Jewish Committee for Inter-religious Consultations. He published numerous incisive commentaries on the state of Jewish-Christian relations. Wanting to foster a better understanding of Jews and Judaism, Dr. Wigoder wrote "Jewish-Christian Relations after World War II" (1988), which brought a vast amount of empathetic understanding, and "Jewish-Christian Interfaith Relations: Agendas for Tomorrow" (1998).
