More than forty years have passed since the promulgation of Nostra Aetate and thirty years since the creation of the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews. These events mark one of the most surprising developments of the twentieth century, which changed to a great extent the two-thousand-year history of relations between Christians and Jews, with momentous consequences for the whole world. Both Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II strove to demonstrate that conversion, a new beginning, and reconciliation were possible. Among the new endeavors to be undertaken by the Pontifical Commission, two are worth mentioning: the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Vatican and the State of Israel, and the dialogue and reflection on the Shoah. This chapter also looks at the future tasks and challenges of the Pontifical Commission.
