Rabbi lauds continued progress in Jewish-Catholic relations

Catholic World News - June 14, 2012

A rabbi active in Jewish-Christian dialogue has written an op-ed piece for The Jerusalem Post lauding continued progress in Jewish-Catholic relations.

“Most Jews in Israel and around the world remain ignorant and unaware of the revolutionary changes which have taken place between Christian groups and Jews and Judaism since the end of World War II,” writes Rabbi Ron Kronish, director of the Inter-religious Coordinating Council in Israel.

“Many, if not most of the Jews in Israel and abroad simply know virtually nothing about these theological and religious changes,” he added. “Instead, they continue to hold negative attitudes toward Catholics and other Christians, which are based on a very unfortunate negative history of Church persecutions of Jews throughout the Middle Ages, and even in the 20th century.”

Rabbi Kronish praised a recent lecture by Cardinal Kurt Koch as “another positive step in the deepening of relations between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people and the State of Israel that has been going on for many years now.”
