The city of Wittenberg, in Germany has an offensive Sculpture on display on one of it’s Churches. A Judensau (Jew-Pig) from 1305 is visable on the facade of the Stadkirche, the church where Martin Luther preached.

Richard Harvey, friend and previous employee of CMJ, is on a mission to have the “Judensau” sculpture removed. On the petition website he says,

"The sculpture continues to cause offence and defame Jewish people and their faith. It needs to be removed to another location so it is not publicly displayed on the external wall of the church, and properly housed and explained elsewhere. Otherwise Jewish people continue to experience the antisemitic power of such an abusive image, and their worst fears about the nature of the Christian faith are confirmed. If the Church is truly repentant over such images, it must take steps to remove them from such prominent display."

Please consider supporting our Jewish and Messianic family in Germany, by signing the petition. Thank you.
