Two conferences – one of Roman Catholics and Jews, and the other of Ecumenicals on the Israel-Palestine Conflict, recently took place on this day. The question for the history of Messianic Jews is: “where were we?”
The 21st meeting of the International Catholic-Jewish Liaison Committee (ILC) was held in Paris, France from February 27 – March 2, 2011.
The conference, titled “Forty Years of Dialogue – Reflections and Future Perspectives” addressed the past, present and future of Catholic-Jewish dialogue in its international settings. The event began with a review of the 40-year history of the ILC, which was begun in 1970. For the current conference, delegates came from the United States, Europe, Israel, Australia, Latin America and Africa. The conference highlighted the positive relationship that began with the Second Vatican Council and the promulgation of Nostra Aetate (the declaration on the relationship of the Church to non-Christian Religions) in 1965.
