Catholic-Jewish interchange will be the subject of the 17th annual Nostra Aetate Dialogue, which will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5, at the McNally Amphitheatre on Lincoln Center campus.

The discussion, “The Future of Catholic-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue,” will feature Timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of New York HERE, and HERE, and Arnold M. Eisen, Ph.D., the seventh chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Edward Bristow, professor of history at Fordham University, will serve as moderator.

The event is co-sponsored by the Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture and the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan. Admission is free and open to the public.

The 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 Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture was established in 1995 to foster Catholic-Jewish dialogue and in addition to the Nostra Aetate Dialogue, hosts the annual Russo Lecture.

Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 14,700 students in its four undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx and Manhattan, a campus in Westchester, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.

    "…first Righteous Among Nations Award, …to Pope John Paul II …Catholic-Jewish relations,"

    Maybe they could establish "The Judas Iscariot fund for world religious indifference and freemasonic blasphemy," as well. Just a thought.

    How about this, "The Pontius Pilate endowment for truth and clean hands."

    Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ warned us:

    18 ¶ If the world hate you, know ye that it hath hated me before you. (DRV)

    And this, especially:

    26 Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets. (DRV)
