A Rabbi and a Priest Walk Into a Cafe

What happens when a Rabbi and a Priest walk into a cafe? Join the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation at Cafe Reconcile (1631 O.C.Haley Blvd., New Orleans) on Wednesday, June 1 at 6:30 p.m. to find out from visiting scholar, Rabbi David Rosen. Rabbi Rosen will be joined by Father Buddy Noel, from the Archdiocese’s Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. The event's topic is "Catholic-Jewish Relations: Past, Present & 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. He received a papal Knighthood in 2005 for his contribution to Jewish-Catholic reconciliation and in 2010 he was made a CBE (Commander of the British Empire) by H.M. Queen Elizabeth II for his work promoting interfaith understanding and cooperation.

 

Kosher-style hors d'oeuvres will be served. Kindly RSVP to cait@jewishnola.com.

Update on GiveNOLA 

On Tuesday, May 3, the GiveNOLA website was down for more than 10 hours, and most agencies, as a result, still don't have a clear picture of how much was raised. On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, thank you. We are incredibly grateful to all those who called and e-mailed, despite the inconvenience, and who insisted on being a part of this incredible community crowdfunding project. 

 

We especially want to thank Allan Bissinger, Dr. Juan Gershanik, Lisa Heller and Maury Herman for their generosity as matching funds sponsors. We also want to thank the Greater New Orleans Foundation for their tireless efforts, as well as the fantastic host of JNOLA's GiveNOLA happy hour, Tracey's Original Irish Channel Bar.

 

Federation will keep you posted on the results, but please know how grateful we are for your generosity.

    Tatiana and Bronislav are disabled and live in a remote Ukrainian farmhouse far from the nearest town. They get by thanks to care packages from Federation partner JDC delivered by their caretaker Tania. When snow, ice and extreme cold close the roads, Tania does whatever it takes to get Tatiana and Bronislav the lifesaving supplies they need to stay alive.

  • A Journey to Justice in Ukraine

    An alum of Federation partner JDC’s Metsuda program for training young Jewish leaders in Eastern Europe, Nikita Didenko knows how to act under pressure. When violence erupted in his small hometown in Ukraine, he made the agonizing choice to leave behind everything he knew—including his fiancée—and move to Kiev. Once there, he was taken in by Federation-supported Moishe House where he discovered his calling—big-city police work.
