Lustiger’s NY Yeshiva Tour, Endorsement of Chabad Lubavitch as Religious Model

The cardinal [Jean-Marie Lustiger] cited three New York Jewish communities he visited last year “homogeneous in their spiritual and practical choices” as models for how religion can successfully integrate modernity …

Asked later by The Jewish Week to which communities he was referring, Cardinal Lustiger said “Yeshiva University, the Jewish Theological Seminary and Lubavitch.” (Eric J. Greenberg, The Jewish Week, Feb. 14, 2003)

Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, the Archbishop of Paris, recently organized an expedition that brought twelve Catholic scholars who were well versed in Hebrew and Judaic subjects to New York City. Hoping to gain an appreciation for Jewish institutes of advanced learning, Lustiger and his delegation visited several schools around the city, including the Jewish Theological Seminary, Hebrew Union College, and Yeshiva University.
