The Psalms: A Doorway to Jewish Catholic Dialogue

Dec 15, 2020 | CIJA Publications, Publications, Uncategorized

The leadership of the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus, as participants in the Catholic-Jewish Dialogue, have studied Psalms and shared musical moments from הלל (Hallel) and Psalm 23 (ה׳ רעי) and found that, although hermeneutical traditions differ, the interfaith study of Tehillim has demonstrated what the Jewish and Catholic faiths hold in common as well as what differentiates one from another. The result of their studies of these sacred poem-prayers is a small booklet with an explanation of the significance of Tehillim/Psalms in the Jewish and Catholic faith traditions, along with translations and commentary of some verses and some comments.
