Glazer Institute: The Legacy of Vatican II
Monday, April 27th, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
The 73rd Annual Rabbi B. Benedict & Ada S. Glazer Institute on Judaism will continue to fulfill Rabbi Glazer’s quest to build goodwill among all people. This year, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Vatican II and the Nostra Aetate document that revolutionized relationships between the Catholic Church and many faith communities. At the same time, we will focus on the shared concerns, hopes, and dreams that will allow us to build stronger relationships and a more cohesive future.
