The Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations will hold its 9th annual meeting at Saint Joseph’s University on October 27-28, 2010, hosted by the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations. The meeting will coincide with the forty-fifth anniversary of the groundbreaking Second Vatican Council document, Nostra Aetate.

The keynote address will be offered by Dr. Terrence Tilley, the Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., Professor of Catholic Theology and Chair of the Theology Department at Fordham University in New York.  He is also a past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America.

Dr. Tilley’s presentation, “Doing Theology in the Context of the Gift and the Promise of Nostra Aetate,” will consider the development of Christian theologies that are non-supersessionist with respect to Judaism.

Brief responses will be offered by three contributors to a forthcoming book addressing a similar topic, entitled Christ Jesus and the Jewish People Today: New Explorations of Theological Interrelationships. The respondents are: Philip A. Cunningham (Saint Joseph’s University), Edward Kessler (Cambridge University), and Barbara Meyer (Hebrew University and Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem).

Please join us for this important anniversary discussion!
