Religions come together at STU to mark 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate

Jewish and Catholic leaders will gather at St. Thomas University on the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate, the landmark doctrine by the Catholic Church to improve relations with non-Christian religious groups.
Nostra Aetate, which is Latin for "in our time," was issued in October 1965 by Pope John Paul VI to try and build better relationships and understanding with other religious groups. This event will commemorate 50 years of groundbreaking progress with discussion, prayer and a special musical presentation by musician Paul Posnak and friends of the St. Martha-Yamaha Concert series.
Speakers include:   
The event is free and open to the public, and will take place Nov. 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Thomas University’s Goldbloom Convocation Hall. Please RSVP by Oct. 30, to Cynthia Rose-McIntyre, crose@stu.edu, or 305-628-6641.
This conference is a joint effort by St. Thomas University, the American Jewish Committee and the Archdiocese of Miami, in collaboration with the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews, the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami and the Jewish Community Relations Council.
