Sacred Threads: Encountering Nostra Aetate for our Time – A Regional Interfaith Conference
Through the groundbreaking declaration Nostra Aetate, the Catholic Church stated its intent to revere “the work of G-d in all major faith traditions.” It was informed by the Holocaust and committed the Church to end antisemitic and anti-Jewish practices. Nostra Aetate additionally addresses the Church’s relationship to Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam.

It is the perfect document to explore for our time. The program will empower people of faith, from all faiths, to understand the spiritual nature and remarkable content of Nostra Aetate, and to reflect on the steps needed today to counter antisemitism and advance interfaith understanding.
