Tuesday, August 13, 2002 Catholics reject evangelization of Jews
The Catholic Church, which spent hundreds of years trying forcibly to convert Jews to Christianity, has come to the conclusion that it is theologically unacceptable to target Jews for evangelization, according to a statement issued yesterday by organizations representing US Catholic bishops and rabbis from the country's two largest Jewish denominations, the Boston Globereports.
On the Catholic-Jewish ecumenical front: Mark Shea (here and here and here) and Joe Katzman offer a conscientious and large-spirited approach to respecting another's faith and your own at the same time. Their essays on acknowledging God at work in those who do not share your creed are worth any six seminars on interfaith dialogue you could take at your local college. Do read them.
