Selections from the 2009 Nostra Aetate Dialogue featuring Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York.
Every year Fordham University brings together Catholic and Jewish leaders to engage in dialogue at the Nostra Aetate lecture. The dialogues are inspired by the Vatican II document that addresses the church's relations with non-Christian religions. This year, newly installed Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York sat down with Arnold M. Eisen, the chancellor of Jewish Theological Seminary. They discussed the pressing issues facing both faiths, notably the diminishment of religious practice among the young. Archbishop Dolan's remarks are reprinted in the Feb. 1-8 issue of America under the title "A Shared Path." Photo: Ken Levinson.
