Book Talk: ‘The Nun in the Synagogue: Judeocentric Catholicism in Israel’ with Emma Polyakov (Merrimack College)

November 9, 2021 at 5:30 pm

In the wake of the Holocaust, a religious phenomenon arose in Israel fueled by survivors who had converted to Catholicism as well as by Catholics determined to address the anti-Judaism inherent in their religious tradition. This talk examines this “Judeocentric Catholicism” as a case study in Catholic perceptions of Jews, Judaism, and the state of Israel.

Emma Polyakov is Assistant Professor, Religious and Theological Studies at Merrimack College.

MASKS are required when inside a campus building. Night parking policy in effect. Detailshttps://jewishstudies.unc.edu/event/the-nun-in-the-synagogue-judeocentric-catholicism-in-israel/
