Abraham Skorka


This article emphasizes the dramatic need for a deep and substantial dialogue between Christians and Jews in the present. Abraham Joshua Heschel’s call, in his famous “No Religion is an Island,” is presented as an actual message for today. It is shown that despite the clashes between Jews and Christians since the very beginning of Christianity, generations of great Jewish scholars have stressed the importance of the interfaith dialogue for the construction of a better humanity. A review of the very important development of the Jewish–Catholic dialogue since Nostra Aetate in Argentina is also presented.
