In April 2013, Revd Bruce Thomson joined a few colleagues to found “Methodist Friends of Judaism.” They had come to believe it necessary to focus more sharply on the Methodist/Jewish relationship in Great Britain. They intend to build bridges and cross them to shake hands, maybe even embrace, but certainly, given the opportunity, to enter into dialogue. Thompson is now chair of the group.
