Catholic-Jewish Relations

Source: The Buffalo News

On January 2, 1999, the Buffalo News published an
article on the Catholic-Jewish Educational Enrichment Program, which
is an effort to educate students in Catholic and Jewish schools about
each other’s faith. This program is in place in Philadelphia and
similar programs exist in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San
Francisco. It involves a teacher-exchange situation, where a Rabbi
visits to a Catholic school and a Priest visits to a Jewish school. The
Catholic-Jewish Educational Enrichment Program is funded by the
Righteous Persons Foundation, which was established by Steven
Spielberg to bolster interfaith relations.
