The 2017 Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture
The 2017 Bernardin Jerusalem LectureMonday, February 13, 2017 - 7:00 pm
Every year, Spertus Institute partners with the Archdiocese of Chicago, American Jewish Committee, Anti-Defamation League, Chicago Board of Rabbis, and the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago to present the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture. This annual program commemorates Cardinal Bernardin’s 1995 visit to Israel and continues the dialogue he advocated between Jews and Catholics.
This year’s speaker is Rabbi Dr. David Shatz of Yeshiva University. He will be discussing the work of seminal Jewish philosopher Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (1903–1993), who rejected the idea of theological dialogue but embraced the shared interests, ideas, and challenges of American Christians and Jews.
Rabbi Dr. David Shatz is the Ronald P. Stanton University Professor of Philosophy, Ethics, and Religious Thought at Yeshiva University and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Stern College for Women. He is a prodigious scholar, author, and editor, whose work includes books, articles, and reviews on general and Jewish philosophy. Rabbi Dr. Shatz received his rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University and his PhD from Columbia University.
Sponsored by the Archdiocese of Chicago, American Jewish Committee, Anti-Defamation League, Chicago Board of Rabbis, Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, and Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership.
