The Jewish Cardinal - Film
(Followed by Q&A with special guests from the Jacksonville Jewish and Catholic Clergy)
Closing Night – Wednesday, November 19 at 7:00 PM
The Jewish Cardinal is a historical drama that tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II - and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from either group.
