The “Pope’s Rabbi” is Coming to Town

Sunday, April 3, 2022

The Catholic-Jewish Dialogue of Collier County proudly presents Rabbi Abraham Skorka who will describe his 25 year “deep and sincere friendship” with Jorge Bergolio, the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, who is now Pope Francis.

This friendship, which continues to this day, began a dialogue that became an important component of both their personal lives and responsibilities as clergy.  They collaborated in writing a book and engaged in 31 TV discussions.

According to Rabbi Skorka, “Our personal dialogues had taken on the mission of spreading a culture of dialogue throughout society In as many ways as possible.”

This event will be in the Ballroom of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church at 3:00 pm.

The Ballroom is in the building directly behind the church, which is at 625 111th Ave. N., Naples
