Albany NY Celebrates 40 Years of Dialogue

Last week, the Catholic and Jewish communities of Albany, NY gathered to celebrate 40 years of friendship and dialogue in the New York state Capital Region. The program featured Mary C. Boys and Sara S. Lee, co-authors of the book, “Christians & Jews in Dialogue: Learning in the Presence of the Other.”

The Capital District Board of Rabbis honored Bishop Howard Hubbard for his singular role as catalyst in promoting dialogue during the past 40 years. In 1968, as a young priest and chairman of the Commission for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the Roman Catholic Diocese, he was part of the grass-roots effort to start this process of dialogue, laying the foundation for building bridges of reconciliation and friendship between Catholics and Jews. Living room conversations brought together leaders in each community. They evolved into broad-based community programs promoting a deeper understanding of each faith.
