Next Steps in the Jewish-Catholic Dialogue

4 April 2022 – 17:00

Location: Angelicum – Aula Minor, and live-streamed
Language: English and Italian

Please join us for “Next Steps in the Jewish-Catholic Dialogue,” a pair of lectures co-sponsored by the Angelicum Thomistic Institute and the Cardinal Bea Center for Judaic Studies (Gregorian). In the last half century, the dialogue between Jews and Catholics has advanced in many unpredictable ways, but has still left many open questions to explore.

The event is divided into two evenings. The first conference on Monday, April 4 at the Angelicum will present a Catholic rereading of the latest document drawn up in the rabbinical field on the relationship between Jews and Christians followed by a Jewish response. A kosher reception will follow in the Sala delle Collone.

The second evening, Tuesday, April 5 at the Gregorian, will focus on a dialogue about the Land Promise, a theme rarely touched upon due to its sensitive political and historical nature and equally essential both for its central importance for the People of Israel and for the Hebrew Bible.  All lectures will be available in both English and Italian via simultaneous translation both in person and online.

Programme for April 4 at the Angelicum:
From Jerusalem to Rome: Catholic Reflections on a Document by Orthodox Jewish Rabbis – H.E. Bruno Forte, Metropolitan Archbishop of Chieti-Vasto

Response – Prof. Karma Ben-Johanan, Humboldt University, Berlin
