L’Amitié Judéo-Chrétienne de France included in the program of its General Assembly in June 2011 the theme of the “difficult brotherhood”. The interventions at this event are published here : an introduction by Florence Taubmann, the president, a long study by Rev. Jean-Pierre Sternberger on “Cain, son of Adam, murderer, brother” and Professor Raphaël Draï’s testimony on the “condition the Jews in the land of Islam”.
The issue also includes Florence Taubmann’s meditation on the theme “Cain could have avoided killing Abel” and a commentary of the Book of Genesis (chap. 2 on the creation of Eve and chapt. 4 on Cain and Abel) by Father Dominique Cerbelaud with an interesting application to the Jewish-Christian dialogue.
In the “Books” section, Bruno Charmet gives account of Cinquante ans après Vatican II (Father Jean Dujardin’s latest book which takes stock of the dialogue between Jews and Christians) and Cardinal Lustinger (signed by Henri Tincq). For his part, Yves Chevalier presents Sylvie Bernay’s L’Église de France face à la persécution (1940-1944) and Limore Yagil’s La France, terre de refuge et de désobéissance civile. Exemple du sauvetage des Juifs.
