A Rabbi Encounters the Catholic Church

A Conversation with the First Rabbi Professor at the Gregorianum in Rome

with Rabbi David MEYER, Professor of Rabbinic Literature Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome,

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and Radius

In the wake of the Holocaust, many Jews are questioning their people's covenant with God. Yet at the same time, the Catholic Church is vigorously affirming the enduring value of this covenant. This paradox is more than a theological curiosity--it is a sign of the misunderstandings and insights that emerge when Jews and Christians venture to meet without bracketing their faith. Rabbi David Meyer has engaged in such encounters as a scholar and a member of an intercultural organization, but never more so than by stepping into the classroom at one of the world's premier Catholic seminaries. He will discuss with Radius and Crossroads Cultural Center what he brings to his students, what they bring to him, and how they have tackled together some of the most difficult issues that face all those who believe (and doubt) in God today.

The event is open to the public and free of charge.
