Within this podcast, Adele Reinhartz, Ph.D. and Rev. Leo D. Lefebure, S.T.L., Ph.D. speak on the topic of Jesus as a Jew and what implications this has for interfaith relations and dialogue.  This lecture was held on November 14, 2016, as part of the annual Rabbi Hayim Perelmuter Conference, and was co-sponsored by the Department of Interfaith Affairs of the Anti-Defamation League, the Center for Religion, Culture and Community at DePaul University, and the Catholic Jewish-Studies Program of The Bernardin Center for Theology and Ministry at Catholic Theological Union.  This particular date also marked the 20th Anniversary of Joseph Cardinal Bernardin's Death, from whom The Bernardin Center takes its name and to whom it retains his legacy and memory.

About the speakers:  Dr. Reinhartz' research includes special focus upon the New Testament, early Jewish-Christian relations, the Bible and Film, and feminist biblical criticism.  She received her doctorate from McMaster University.  Dr. Lefebure focuses his research upon interreligious dialogue on a wide scale, including Christian-Buddhist, Christian-Muslim, Christian-Hindu, and Christian-Jewish dialogue.  He received his doctorate from The University of Chicago Divinity School and was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1978.

About the lecture:  Dr. Adele Reinhartz, professor at the University of Ottawa, will reflect on her ongoing scholarship about the Jewish setting for Jesus' preaching and ministry.  Dr. Leo D. Lefebure, professor at Georgetown University and presbyter of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will reflect on the implications of the ‘Jesus the Jew’ model for wider interreligious dialogue.
