At the end of 2015, three significant statements from the Vatican, the French Jewish community, and a group of Orthodox rabbis were issued on the relationship between Christians and Jews. The Institute has invited some leading scholars to SJU for a consultation to study these texts, many of whom will join in a public conversation about these fascinating documents. The texts are available at the bottom of the webpage found HERE.
Speaking about the documents for the public evening program:
- Rabbi Dr. Ruth Langer
- Dr. Elena Procario-Foley
- Rabbi Dr. David Sandmel
- Rabbi Dr. David Berger; Rabbi Noam Marans, Rev. Dr. John T. Pawlikowski; Rev. Dr. Peter A. Pettit; Rabbi Dr. Ruth Sandberg; and Dr. Matthew Tapie.
Note: The consultation resulted in the publication of several articles on the 2015 Vatican document. For more information
