Jego wyjątkowość polega na tym, że rodzi się on ze świadomości duchowego pokrewieństwa obydwu religii. W duchu nauczania Soboru św. Jan Paweł II - nawiązujšc przy tym do słów Adama Mickiewicza - określał Żydów "starszymi braćmi w wierze”, a Benedykt XVI dodawał, że są oni dla nas również "ojcami w wierze"."

"One of the easiest ways to assess the difference in relations between Christians and Jews in the forty years since 1965 is to examine a library catalogue. The number of books devoted to the historical, theological and philosophical dimensions of our relationship grows larger every year. Beyond the printed pages there are human encounters which encourage exploration of our religious traditions. There are dozens of symposia and many research centers that focus on the past, present and future of this relationship. If someone were to investigate this topic prior to 1965 they would discover only a few Jewish authors who explored the Christian tradition and even less Christian authors who examined Judaism with a measure of empathy.

    Nostra Aetate reflections from Elijah leaders. Dear Friend, In October 1965, the Vatican promulgated Nostra Aetate, the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions, a landmark document that radically changed Catholicism's relations with other faiths and attempted to right earlier injustices, particularly with regards to the Church's attitude towards the Jewish people. From October to December 2015, members of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders and the Elijah Academy participated in many events around the globe to commemorate 50 years since this major achievement of the Second Vatican Council and to reflect on its impact.
