Pope meets with European Rabbis, condemns anti-semitic violence in Europe

2015-04-20

The rise of anti-semitism in Europe and the relationship between the Catholic Church and Judaism: This was the focus of the Pope's meeting with a delegation from the Conference of European Rabbis, which represents more than 700 Rabbis in the continent. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Anti-Semitic tendencies in Europe are worrisome, as are acts of hate and violence. Christians cannot stand still before this, but instead must reject every form of anti-semitism.” 

In light of rising secularism and aggressive atheism in Europe,  the Pope called on the Conference to renew the spiritual and religious dimensions of the continent. 

The Chief Rabbi of Moscow, Pinchas Goldschmidt said Jews in Europe often feel targeted by radicalized Muslim immigrants and some European politicians. 

The Pope called on religious persecution, direct and indirect, to stop. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We must also condemn all the acts of hate and violence that are carried out against Christians and people of others faiths.” 

October marks 50 years since the Nostra Aetate document was issued. The publication marked a turning point in the relationship between Catholics and Jews. 

As a symbol of time and of this anniversary,  the Conference of European Rabbis gave Pope Francis a clock, before taking the official picture and saying farewell.
