      Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim anoints Syriac Scholar Andreas Juckel into the
      Syriac Orthodox Church

      Born into a Protestant family in East Germany, Andreas Juckel grew to
      love and adore the Syriac Orthodox Church and informed His Eminence Mor
      Cyril Aphrem Karim that he wanted to convert. On Sunday, October 14th,
      at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Teaneck, New Jersey, the Archbishop, in a
      very joyous ceremony, witnessed by several fellow Syriac Scholars and a
      Cathedral filled with our Syriac Orthodox faithful, His Eminence, at the
      foot of the altar, anointed and accepted Professor Juckel into the
      faith. Several Clergy and deacons of the Archdiocese, including the
      newly ordained Ewangeloyo George Kiraz, took part in the service.

      At the conclusion of the ceremony, His Eminence spoke about Professor
      Juckel noting that he is on the staff of The Institute for New Testament
      Textual Research at Muenster University, where he is responsible for the
      institute’s work on the Syriac New Testament. The Syriac scholar has
      traveled extensively doing research on the subject and is recognized for
      his accomplishments in the field.
