Dr. Adam Gregerman to Speak
To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Nostra Aetate, the groundbreaking 1965 Roman Catholic declaration on the relation between the Church and Judaism, both Jews and Catholics have released major theological statements on Jewish-Christian relations. Dr. Gregerman will critically analyze these important new documents. He will situate them in the context of the dramatic changes that have taken place since Vatican II and consider what they indicate about contemporary theological trends and challenges in Jewish-Christian relations.
Dr. Adam Gregerman will present Rethinking the Covenant with God, Rethinking Relations with Each Other: Recent Statements on Jewish-Christian Relations
