The Rev. Dennis H. Holstschneider, C.M., president of DePaul, and Archbishop Blase J. Cupich delivered welcoming remarks at the 20th annual Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture. Rabbi David Sandmel, director of Interfaith Affairs for the Anti-Defamation League, was the guest speaker at the event, lecturing on “Our Spiritual Patrimony: A Jewish Perspective on the Transformation of Jewish-Catholic Relations.”

The Annual Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Jerusalem Lecture series began in 1995, when Joseph Cardinal Bernardin delivered a lecture titled "Anti-Semitism: The Historical Legacy and the Continuing Challenge for Christians" in the Senate Hall at Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The annual lecture series continues to contribute to the dialogue between Jews and Catholics on issues affecting their relationship.
