The Surprising Story of How Three American Cardinals Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations

Rabbi James Rudin, the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Religion and Judaica at Saint Leo University, talks about how Cardinals Richard Cushing and Francis Spellman influenced the Second Vatican Council to adopt Nostra Aetate—a statement against anti-Semitism—and how Cardinal John O'Connor transformed that document's sentiments into practical results a generation later.

Rudin is introduced by Ruth Langer, associate director of the Center for Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College; Martin Kaplan, chair of the American Jewish Committee's Interreligious Affairs Commission; and Raymond Flynn, former mayor of Boston and United States Ambassador to the Holy See.
