Nostra Aetate to Explore Catholic-Jewish Interfaith DialogueContact: Nina Romeo
Catholic-Jewish interchange will be the subject of the 17th annual Nostra Aetate
Dialogue, which will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5, at the McNally Amphitheatre on Lincoln Center campus.
The discussion, "The Future of Catholic-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue," will feature Timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of New York, and Arnold M. Eisen, Ph.D., the seventh chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Edward Bristow, professor of history at Fordham University, will serve as moderator.
The event is co-sponsored by the Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture and the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan. Admission is free and open to the public.
The Nostra Aetate
Dialogue can be traced to the Nostra Aetate
(In Our Time) document, a declaration by the Second Vatican Council stressing the importance of relationships between the church and non-Christian religions.
The Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture was established in 1995 to foster Catholic-Jewish dialogue and in addition to the Nostra Aetate
Dialogue, hosts the annual Russo Lecture.
