A Rabbi and a Priest Walk Into a Cafe

What happens when a Rabbi and a Priest walk into a cafe? In an event jointly sponsored by the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation, more than 50 attendees came to Cafe Reconcile to find out from visiting scholar, Rabbi David Rosen. Rabbi Rosen was joined by Father Buddy Noel, from the Archdiocese’s Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. The two spoke on Catholic-Jewish relations: past, present and future.

 

Rabbi David Rosen is International Director of Interreligious Affairs of AJC and its Heilbrunn Institute for International Interreligious Understanding. Former Chief Rabbi of Ireland and a past Chairman of IJCIC, the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations (a broad-based coalition of Jewish organizations representing world Jewry to other religions), he serves on the leadership of various international interreligious bodies.
