February 7, 2012

Presenter: Rabbi A. James Rudin, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Religion and Judaica, Saint Leo University and Senior Interreligious Advisor for the American Jewish Committee

In this new book (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2011), Rabbi Rudin demonstrates how Cardinals Richard Cushing and Francis Spellman influenced the Second Vatican Council to adopt Nostra Aetate—a statement against anti-Semitism—and how Cardinal John O'Connor transformed that document's sentiments into practical results a generation later.

Cosponsored by the Boston College Center for Christian-Jewish Learning and the School of Theology and Ministry
