Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, OSM

Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics
Former Director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program

Rev. Pawlikowski is a member of the Order of Friar Servants of Mary (Servites) and was ordained at the University of St. Mary of the Lake. A pioneer in modern Catholic-Jewish dialogue who was the founding director of CTU’s Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, Fr. Pawlikowski served on the faculty from 1968 until his retirement in 2017.

This panel features three world-renowned scholars who will discuss the rising and varied manifestations of antisemitism in America today against the backdrop of their areas of expertise in Jewish-Christian relations, American history, and political science. In putting their analyses into conversation with one another, this panel will offer not only expert insight, but also a way forward in defining what antisemitism is, how it is expressed in political and religious forms, and how it can be most effectively addressed.


Moderated by

Dr. Malka Z. Simkovich
Crown-Ryan Chair of Jewish Studies
Director of Catholic-Jewish Studies at Catholic Theological Union
