A Global Perspective with Rabbi David Rosen

Rabbi David Rosen, the “Rabbi to Three Popes,” recently led the delegation of Muslim leaders to Auschwitz.  He is the International President of Religions for Peace, and AJC’s Jerusalem-based Director of International Interreligious Affairs.

Join us for an inspirational report on new efforts towards reconciliation and interfaith relations.

Rabbi Rosen is the Honorary President of the International Council of Christians and Jews; and the Jewish representative on the Board of Directors of the King Abdullah International Center for Interreligious Dialogue. He was part of the Israeli team that negotiated full relations between the State of Israel and the Holy See, and is a past chairman of the IJCIC, the Jewish umbrella organization for interfaith relations. In 2005, the Pope made Rosen a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great in recognition of his contribution to Catholic-Jewish reconciliation; and in 2010 he was named a Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for his interreligious work. Rabbi Rosen was one of the founders of Rabbis for Human Rights. From 1979 to 1985, Rosen was Chief Rabbi of Ireland; and before that served as senior rabbi of the largest Jewish congregation in South Africa.
