Synagoga and Ecclesia in Our Time

Synagoga and Ecclesia in Our Time

by Joshua Kauffman

St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“In 1965, Nostra Aetate rejected such images, declaring that Jews are beloved by an ever-faithful God whose promises are irrevocable. The statue of ‘Synagoga and Ecclesia in Our Time’ will portray Jews and Christians using the medieval figures in a strikingly different way to express Catholic teaching today.”

C. Kevin Gillespie, S.J., St. Joseph University President, April 24, 2015
