TOWARD A TEACHING OF RESPECT

Dr Mary Boys, SNJM
 Archbishop Donald Bolen
Rabbi Jeremy Parnes

Dr Mary Boys is joined in conversation by Archbishop Donald Bolen and Rabbi Jeremy Parnes.
They will explore how Christians might develop a “teaching of respect” for Jews and Judaism,
and offer concepts and a vocabulary that could make such a teaching accessible to those with minimal theological background.

 

Dr Mary Boys is a Religious Sister of the Congregation of the Holy Names and American scholar specialising in religious studies. She is Dean of Academic affairs and McAlpin Professor of Practical Theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York.

Archbishop Donald Bolen is Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina on the Canadian prairies. He is a member of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, is a longtime participant in international ecumenical dialogues, and has a lifelong interest in Jewish-Christian relations.

Rabbi Jeremy Parnes is Rabbi at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Regina Saskatchewan Canada. Rabbi Jeremy is a past Chair of ALEPH – Alliance for Jewish Renewal. He is deeply committed to interfaith bridge-building and learning to respect the dignity of our differences.

Chaired by Sr Lucy Thorson, NDS
