Chasing Peace: A Conversation with Rabbi Abraham Skorka
Burns Back Court, Loyola Marymount University. January 22, 2015 from 7:00 - 9:00pm

Rabbi Skorka is one of Pope Francis’ closest friends and has written with Francis on numerous occasions. Some of these collaborations include: Fe, dignidad, oración, solidaridad (Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos, 2013) and Entre el cielo y la tierra (Editorial Sudamericana, 2010) recently published in English. He is an eminently respected Jewish leader in Argentina whose scholarship has a global reach.  He will make a three-city tour with a focus on international relations in Washington, DC, on civil rights in Atlanta, and in Los Angeles, on how the Latino world is having an impact on religion.

Abp. José Gomez has accepted the invitation to give a welcome to Rabbi Skorka and to take part in the evening’s program. The event is free and open to the public (but see below about RSVPing), and will feature simultaneous English/Spanish translation.
