Celebrating Nostra Aetate

A Call to Love in our Time

Nostra Aetate was a landmark document issued at the Second Vatican Council, in which the Church rescinded what has come to be known as its centuries-old “teachings of contempt” toward Jewish people. This document effectively reset Jewish-Catholic relations in the modern era and opened the way for the positive relationships we enjoy today.

You are invited to join Bishop Gregory Bittman, Rabbi Daniel Friedman, Father Lawrence Frizzell, and Rabbi Kliel Rose for a Jewish and Catholic Celebration of Nostra Aetate’s 50th Anniversary: A Call to Love in our Time on Sunday, November 29, 7 - 9 p.m. at Beth Israel Synagogue, 131 Wolf Willow Road, Edmonton.
