SIRIUS XM Radio announced today that Archbishop Timothy Dolan and Rabbi Harlan J. Wechsler, who both host regular shows on SIRIUS XM, will co-host a live radio special airing on Sunday, December 20 (3:00-4:00 pm ET).

Archbishop Dolan, Archbishop of New York and host of the weekly show A Conversation with the Archbishop on The Catholic Channel, and Rabbi Wechsler, host of Rabbi Wechsler Teaches on the SIRIUS XM Stars channel, will join in an interfaith dialogue focusing on the Catholic and Jewish Holy Days and the importance of nurturing tradition in an increasingly secularized world. Archbishop Dolan and Rabbi Wechsler will also answer questions from both a live studio audience and callers around the country.

“We are honored to bring together Archbishop Dolan and Rabbi Wechsler for an insightful discussion that will appeal to people of many backgrounds,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SIRIUS XM Radio. “This thought-provoking and timely dialogue about tradition and faith demonstrates the unique power of radio.”

The program will be simulcast on both The Catholic Channel (SIRIUS channel 159 and XM channel 117) and SIRIUS XM Stars (SIRIUS channel 102 and XM channel 155).
