The conciliar declaration ‘Nostra Aetate” is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year.

On the occasion of this event, five leading figures of French Judaism have drafted a text entitled “A Declaration for the Upcoming Jubilee of Brotherhood,” which reflects the desire for a renewal of the brotherhood between Jews and Christians.

The authors of this declaration come from the various movements of French Judaism: Jean-François Bensahel (President of the Union Libérale Israélite de France), Philippe Haddad (rabbi of the Union Libérale Israélite de France), Rivon Krygier (Rabbi of the Adath Shalom Massorti community), Raphy Marciano (Director of the Espace Culturel et Universitaire Juif d’Europe) and Franklin Rausky (Director of Research for the Elie Wiesel Institute).

During a ceremony to be held on November 23rd, the Chief Rabbi of France, Haïm Korsia, will give this document to Cardinal André Vingt-Trois, the archbishop of Paris.


The ceremony will take place at the Collège des Bernardins in Paris.
