A Radical Transformation: Jewish-Christian Relations 1947-2017

On Monday, October 16, 2017 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., you are invited to a dialogue on Jewish-Christian relations over the last seventy years.

In 1947, an important post-war conference in Seelisberg (Switzerland) gathered several dozen Jews and Christians, to address together the question of the Christian "teaching of contempt" for Judaism. The resulting "Ten Points of Seelisberg" sketched out a very different type of Christian-Jewish interaction.

How important was the role of Seelisberg in setting the trajectory for this transformation--and how far have we come in those seven decades? What important issues still remain to be tackled? 

Please join us as our expert panelists help us to explore these fascinating and relevant questions:

Dr. Robert Ventresca is associate professor of history at King's University College and Western University in London (Ontario).

Dr. Adele Reinhartz is a professor in the Department of Classics and Religious Studies at the University of Ottawa.

The event takes place at Regis College, 100 Wellesley St. West, Toronto, with free admission. For more information, please email torontodialogue@gmail.com
