Nostra Aetate

E-mail Print PDF

IDC organized a lecture for the Turkish American Muslim Community on the declaration on the relation of the church to non-Christian religions, Nostra Aetate proclaimed by His Holiness Pope Paul VI on October 28, 1965.

Speakers were Father Francis V. Tiso, Associate Director of the Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, USCCB, Washington DC and Rabbi Jack Bemporad, Director, Center for Interreligious Understanding, NJ.

Both speakers discussed from different perspectives the importance of the declaration, what has happened so far, and what is to be done in the future. Questions and answers followed the lectures.

We thank Father Tiso and Rabbi Bemporad for informing our community about Nostra Aetate, which was a milestone in the 20th century.
