Monday, March 31, 2014 7:00 pm


On March 23, 1995, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin delivered a lecture titled Anti-Semitism: The Historical Legacy and the Continuing Challenge for Christians in the Senate Hall at Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The lecture was the centerpiece of his visit to Israel. The annual Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture continued this dialogue between Jews and Catholics on the theological issues affecting their relationship.

This year’s lecture was presented by
John W. Crossin, OSFS.
 

Father John W. Crossin, a member of the Oblates of St. Francis De Sales, is known for his expertise in the world of ecumenism and interfaith relations. He holds a PhD in moral theology and master’s degrees in psychology and theology from The Catholic University of America and serves as executive director of the Secretariat of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. A sought-after teacher and widely published author, Father Crossin is also the past president of the North American Academy of Ecumenists.
