Documents and News Releases Produced by the Catholic-Jewish Dialogues

During his Apostolic Visitation to the United States in April of 2008, Pope Benedict XVI addressed the Jewish community of New York Citys Park East Synagogue. Speaking in tones of deep respect marked by fraternal warmth and affection, the pope stated:

In addressing myself to you I wish to re-affirm the Second Vatican Councils teaching on Catholic-Jewish relations and reiterate the Churchs commitment to the dialogue that in the past forty years has fundamentally changed our relationship for the better Because of that growth in trust and friendship, Christians and Jews can rejoice together in the deep spiritual ethos of the Passover.

Pope Benedict XVI was, of course, referring to the Second Vatican Councils document Nostra Aetate, whose 1965 publication proved to be a seminal moment in Jewish-Catholic relations. This new relationship, which has advanced steadily over the last fifty years, is rooted in Nostra Aetates articulation of the Churchs attitude of mutual respect and gratitude, as well as historical and theological indebtedness to Judaism and the Jewish people. As the final document promulgated by the Council, Nostra Aetate stated:

As the sacred synod searches into the mystery of the Church, it remembers the bond that spiritually ties the people of the New Covenant to Abraham’s stock. Thus the Church of Christ acknowledges that, according to God’s saving design, the beginnings of her faith and her election are found already among the Patriarchs, Moses and the prophets. She professes that all who believe in Christ-Abraham’s sons according to faith are included in the same Patriarch’s call, and likewise that the salvation of the Church is mysteriously foreshadowed by the chosen people’s exodus from the land of bondage. The Church, therefore, cannot forget that she received the revelation of the Old Testament through the people with whom God in His inexpressible mercy concluded the Ancient Covenant… Since the spiritual patrimony common to Christians and Jews is so great, this sacred synod wants to foster and recommend that mutual understanding and respect which is the fruit, above all, of biblical and theological studies as well as of fraternal dialogues. – Nostra Aetate #4

It was in this same spirit that in 1966 the Bishops of the United States began informal dialogue with the American Jewish community under the directorship of Rev. Edward Flannery and the fledgling Secretariat for Catholic-Jewish Relations. These consultations took on a formal status in 1977, when then director of the Secretariat, Dr. Eugene J. Fisher, convened a biannual symposium with the Synagogue Council of America (SCA), representing Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Judaism. In 1980, Dr. Fisher and Rabbi Daniel F. Polish published Formation of Social Policy in the Catholic and Jewish Traditions, followed in 1983 by Liturgical Foundations of Social Policy in the Catholic and Jewish Traditions, documenting the early years of the changing tide in Jewish-Catholic relations.

Consultations with the National Council of Synagogues (NCS), as successor to SCA and representative of Reform and Conservative Judaism in the United States, beganin 1987.Also initiated in 1987 was a separate dialogue between the Orthodox Union, the Rabbinical Council of America, and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) through the Bishops Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. This group has explored topics of mutual importance to both communities, such as marriage and school choice, and has published official joint statements.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Ryan, who is Catholic, seemingly hinted at finding out about his roots.

“Guess I need to start saying ‘L’Chaim’ now, too!” he tweeted, attaching a GIF of himself holding up a drink. He did not reference the show itself in the social media post.

ISJL – North Carolina Fayetteville Encyclopedia – Goldring …

Fayetteville: Historical Overview

The first Europeans to appear in the area were Scots from the highlands of their native country. Following the Yamasee and Tuscarora Wars in the early 18th century, Fayetteville became a commercial center of the British colonies. Located along the Cape Fear River, this inland port was divided into two towns originally named Campbellton and Cross Creek. Following the American Revolution, Fayetteville rose to prominence as a hub of business and government. In 1783, Campbellton and Cross Creek merged and officially became Fayetteville, the first town in the US to be named after the famed French Revolutionary general, Marquis de Lafayette.

As an inland port, the town grew in wealth and size, being the second largest city in North Carolina by 1820 with 3,500 residents. It also became a major destination due to its centrality in the plank roads system that was crucial to transportation in the antebellum South. Though suffering a devastating fire in 1831, the city emerged and was rebuilt, including a new Market House that became a major locale of commerce.

Jews have been an active part of Fayetteville throughout its history, and a Jewish community remains today.

Stories of the Jewish Community in Fayetteville

Throughout the 19th century, Jews lived in Fayetteville but their numbers remained modest. The city was severely damaged by General Sherman during the Civil War but rebounded and grew tremendously afterward. Reconstruction and the New South era brought new industry and institutions to Fayetteville, including pioneering centers of African American education. In 1867, the Howard School was established, which later became Fayetteville State University. Still, by 1878, there were only 52 Jews recorded in the town.

Over the next few decades, Jews would play a pivotal role in the citys economic development. The first skyscraper in Fayetteville was a department store owned by the Russian-born Stein brothers. It was opened in 1916, four years after Kalman Stein and his brother Jacob formed The Capitol Department Store. Kalman Stein ran the business until 1940 when his son J. Bernard Stein, took over. J. Bernard Stein became a prominent business and philanthropic leader in Fayetteville. In 1909, Hyman Fleishman established B. Fleishman and Brothers department store on Market Street. Like the Steins, the Fleishman enterprise became a mainstay in the business world of Fayetteville.

From its beginning, Beth Israel was an Orthodox congregation. The synagogue was built within walking distance of the congregants homes and included a mikvah (Jewish ritual bath). The congregation hired a series of shochets (kosher butchers), who also usually led services as best they could. Beth Israel also did not have an ordained rabbi until 1943 when the congregation hired Rabbi Charles J. Shoulson, a graduate of an Orthodox seminary. According to a contemporary history of the community, after Rabbi Shoulsons arrival, services and the Hebrew School were reorganized along more modern lines. He also set up an adult bible study class.

Anti-Semitism in FayettevilleRabbi Shoulson confronted anti-Semitism in Fayetteville in lectures for local civic groups and weekly radio addresses. In 1944, one article claimed that It should be stated incidentally, that the Jewish population in Fayetteville has always enjoyed cordial and friendly relationships with their non-Jewish neighbors. Still, some Fayetteville Jews have noted that they faced a degree of social exclusion. Monroe Evans, a longtime member of Beth Israel, states that, Jews were segregatedWe werent invited to join certain groups. There were certain places we knew better than to go.

Beth Israel responded with expanding its presence in the city, building a community center on Morganton Road in 1950 with a large social hall and a kosher kitchen. As more and more members moved to the area around the Beth Israel Center, the congregation decided to move its worship services from their downtown synagogue to the center. They built a new sanctuary and chapel in the Beth Israel Center, which became the home of the congregation. The congregation would periodically need to find new classrooms for its burgeoning number of students.

The Community GrowsBy the 1980s, there were 500 Jews in Fayetteville. This growth began to affect the nature of the congregations religious service. In 1972, Beth Israel officially became a Conservative congregation and rewrote its laws to give women more rights in religious participation. In the 1990s, women were called for aliyah and were counted for a minyan, and in 2014 the congregation hired their first female rabbi.

The Jewish Community in Fayetteville Today

Fayetteville still has an active Jewish community today. Though many small towns throughout the South have experienced severe demographic dissipation, Beth Israel continues to offer religious services, a Sunday school for Jewish youth in Fayetteville, and a kosher kitchen. Beth Israel is still the only synagogue in Fayetteville, but with 186 adult members, it is a testament to the rich Jewish experience in Fayetteville and the South.
