The Catholic Church and the Jewish People

Rabbi Dr. Riccardo Di Segni

Fordham University Press

The recent work of the delegations of the Vatican Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel's Commission for Relations with the Catholic Church is one of the most significant signs of the progress made in Jewish-Christian dialogue. A problematic element of the relationship between Christians and Jews that has remained unresolved is the issue of Orthodox Judaism. This problem is still far from being solved, this chapter discusses, but the participation of some Israeli chief rabbis in the dialogue is a sign of a readiness to listen and to adopt a more trusting attitude for the future. The first open question in Jewish-Christian relations is the definition of who the parties involved are in this dialogue, and who they represent; this is clear in the Catholic Church, but not yet apparent in other Christian churches. Another contentious issue is the perception of a certain degree of uncertainty as to the Christian theology of Judaism and as to the real intentions of the Christian churches toward Jews.
