Catholics and Jews: The New Frontiers

By A. James Rudin

American Jewish Committee (AJC), November 1986

Over twenty years after the Roman Catholic Church published in the Second Vatican Council its "Nostra Aetate" - the document that reestablished the Church's relation to non-Christian religions - the author of this report assesses the state of Catholic-Jewish relations. He addresses central factors in the relations, including the Holocaust, Antisemitism, and internal struggles of each camp, concluding that there is an enormous hunger among both Catholics and Jews to overcome the 1900 years of misunderstanding, suspicion, persecution, senseless deaths and cruel murders that marked so much of that tragic history.
