NEW YORK - Two religious scholars will debate the similarities and critical differences between Judaism and Christianity during Fordham's ninth annual Nostra Aetate Dialogue on Thurs., Nov. 8 at 6:30 p.m., in Pope Auditorium at the Lincoln Center campus.
The discussion, "Do Christians and Jews Worship the Same God? Two Experts in Dialogue," will feature Rabbi Jan Katzew, director of the Department of Jewish Education at the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (UAHC) and Philip Cunningham (FCO '72), executive director of the Center of Christian-Jewish Learning and an adjunct professor of theology at Boston College
Fordham's annual 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 program contributes to the interfaith dialogue between Catholicism and Judaism.
