As part of his residency, Rabbi Mordechai Levin, who met fellow Argentinean Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio before he became Pope Francis, delivered a lecture titled “Pope Francis and the Jewish People: From Catholic-Jewish Relations in Argentina to Catholic-Jewish Relations around the World.”
The Jay Phillips Center’s rabbis-in-residence program promotes the study of Judaism, with special emphasis on the relationship of Judaism to Christianity and other religions. Along with presenting public lectures, the rabbis involved in this program serve as guest professors in classes and teach in other venues at the University of Saint Thomas and the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University.
