On Tuesday night, March 9, at 7:30 p.m. the Cathedral Heritage Foundation and the Louisville Seminary will co-host a public presentation entitled “The Passion of Jesus: Some Christian and Jewish Views.” The event is co-sponsored by The Temple
and the Louisville Jewish Federation
The presentation will take place in Hundley Hall at Gardencourt on the Seminary's campus. It will include brief presentations by a panel made up of several Louisville-area Christian and Jewish leaders, and a question and answer session with those attending the event. The event is free and open to the public.
The local religious leaders taking part in the event include:
Peter Anik, Executive Director, Jewish Community Relations Council
Rev. Ron Gaddie, President, Kentucky Council of Churches, and Pastor, Highland United Methodist Church
Fr. Joe Graffis, Pastor, St. Edward Catholic Church
Rabbi Joe Rooks Rapport, Senior Rabbi, The Temple
Terry Taylor, Executive Director of the Cathedral Heritage Foundation
, will moderate the discussion.
The evening’s discussion will begin with reactions by the panelists to Mel Gibson’s film, The Passion of the Christ,
but will extend into other important areas of discussion. Among these are views held by many mainstream Christian denominations regarding the role of Jews in the Passion events, and the anxiousness felt by many local Jewish residents about the aftermath of the film’s screening in the Louisville area.
