About Rabbi Tanenbaum

Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum was a pivotal 20th-century interreligious leader in the United States. He helped spur the Roman Catholic church toward what would become the church’s major declaration about non-Christian religions, Nostra Aetate. A Baltimore native, Tanenbaum was a pioneer in Jewish–Christian relations, a civil rights leader and friend of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and a prolific author.
