This chapter discusses contemporary Jewish spirituality from an Ignatian perspective. It explains the influence of a March 1963 meeting in New York chaired by Abraham Joshua Heschel to the Second Vatican Council's Nostra Aetate. This dialogue was attended by Augustin Cardinal Bea, head of the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity, and his assistant Monsignor Jan Willebrands. This chapter explains the relevance and similarity of Jewish spirituality expounded by Jewish writers Martin Buber and Abraham Joshua Heschel to the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

Keywords:   Jewish spirituality, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Second Vatican Council, Augustin Cardinal Bea, Monsignor Jan Willebrands, Spiritual Exercises, Martin Buber, Saint Ignatius of Loyola
