Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture

Each year, Spertus Institute proudly partners with the Archdiocese of Chicago and Jewish organizations across our region 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, Spertus proudly hosts the lecture, for the first time to be presented online. The featured speaker is His Beatitude, Latin Patriarch Pierbattista Pizzaballa, OFM, who was appointed Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem in November 2020.
