In my country the formation of havurot has thus far been difficult as many within the Church are still somewhat wary of things connected to Jews and Judaism, and associate it with “Judaizing”.

More generally, though, matters are compounded even further as exploration of Jewish culture and languages is seen as going against VII insofar as it is believed all spiritual activities, be them prayer or study, must be carried out in the vernacular and be reflective of the present/local culture.

Therefore any attempts to pray in Hebrew/Aramaic or explore Jewish traditions/sources are understood as a sort of form of traditionalism, except with Hebrew instead of Latin.
