Zeldin Rebukes Jews Who Pleaded 'Exoneration and Forgiveness' on Roman PiIgiimages

treasurers of Jewish literature such
as the Apocrypha — Apocalyptic
literature, the writings of Josephus
and the writings of Philo. Were it
not for the Church, the Hebrew
Bible would have remained a book
for the Jews alone, as is the Tal-
mud. By its adoption by the
Church the Hebrew Bible became
a universal book which has had
a tremendous influence on west-
ern civilization.
"Jews . and - Christians are mem-
bers of one human society. Having
a common interest in the wel-
fare of their country. They are
members of one fellowship though
they are separated by their relig-
ions. The Jews respect Christianity
and against interfering with the
theology of Christianity. The Jews

In an article to appear in the
text issue of Jewish Quarterly Re-
view, Dr. Solomon Zeitlin severe
ly criticizes Jewish individuals and
organizations who ran to the Vati-
can to plead for "exoneration" and
"forgiveness."
Entitled "The Ecumenical Coun-
cil Vatican II and the Jews," the
article by Prof. Zeitlin, who is the
editor of the quarterly, reviews the
facts regarding the crucifixion,
declares that "the death of Jesus
has historical and theological
aspects," that the only sources deal-
ing with Jesus' death are the Gos-
pels which were written more than
two generations after the death of
Jesus, and shows how the Gospels
contradict each other and show
"irreconcilable discrepancies."

itarian approaches to the issue by
Pope John XXIII who had inter-
ceded to save Jewish lives, who
ordered changes in liturgy to im-
prove relations between the Catho-
lic Church nad the Jews and who
planned calling the Ecumenical
Council to revise theological prac
tices. When Pope Paul VI conv-
ened the council after John's
death, Dr. Zeitlin charges: "Some
Jews, when they learned that the
Ecumenical Council would recon-
sider the theology of the Crucifix-
ion in relation to the Jews made
pilgrimages to Rome and petition-
ed the Vatican. Among them was
a professor, a theologian. It is to
be assumed that those who ran to
the Pope in the Church theology
on the Crucifixion. They went to
the Vatican to plead for 'exonera-
tion' and 'forgiveness.' Exoneration
for what? Forgiveness for what?
Historically, the Jews were not
guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus.
Jesus was crucified by the Romans
as a rebel. It is not the Jews but
the Christians who have to atone
for the libelous accusation against
the Jewish people."

"Let all the people walk each
one in the name of his God, but
we will walk in the name of
Adonai, our God forever and ever."

"Dialogues between Jews and

Dr. Zeitlin proceeds in his art-
icle to assert that the lobbying of
some Jews at the Vatican "is harm-
ful historically." He adds: "Juda-
ism and Christianity are two dif-
ferent religions with different
theologies. It is morally wrong to
interfere with other theologies.
The theology of the Church is a
matter for Christians. The theology
of the Synagogue is a matter for
Jews!' Prof. Zeitlin proceeds to
state:
"The Jews do not wish to convert
the Christians to Judaism nor be
converted to Christianity. The Jews
respect Christianity as it brought
monotheism to the pagan world.
Even in the middle Ages when the
Jews were prosecuted by the Chris-
tians, Maimonides held that Jesus
he!ped to prepare the way for the
true King Messiah.
"The Jews are grateful to the
Church for its preservation of great
