Mr. Yitzhak Mor
Yitzhak Mor is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Comparative Religion at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research examines the relationship between Jews and Christians in the United States in recent decades and the spectrum of Christian beliefs ranging from philo-Semitism to antisemitism underlying this relationship.
His MA thesis examines relations between Neo-Conservative Catholic and Jewish thinkers in contemporary America. In his upcoming research, titled: Between Philo-Semitism and Antisemitism: The Image of Jews and the Influence of Judaism on the New Religious Right in America he wishes to investigate Judaism’s position in the political theology of conservative religious streams of the American “New Religious Right” at the turn of the twentieth century, as well as the participation of individual Jews in the movement.
His broader research interests include political theology, Jewish-Christian interfaith dialogue, American religious and political conservatism, Christian Zionism, Holocaust consciousness and antisemitism in America.
Mor is the recipient of Sir Sigmund and Lady Hazel Sternberg Prizes for Interfaith Understanding, the Annenberg Prize for American Studies and a scholarship for the study of antisemitism, racism, the Holocaust, genocide and mass violence from the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University. During his MA, he was a fellow at the Center for the Study of Christianity at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is also an independent editor and served as a content writer for the President of the State of Israel.
