Local AJC Leader Welcomes Unbiased Passion Play

NAW YORK — Ameri-
can Christian and Jewish
leaders welcomed the recent
vote of the town council of
Oberammergau, Germany,
which has decided that the
1980 presentation of its
famous Passion Play is to be
based on an earlier text
rather than on the highly
anti-Semitic version that
has been presented for more
than a century.
As a result of the vote, the
1980 Passion Play is to be
performed from a script
written in 1750 by a Be-
efine monk, Ferdinand
ner, replacing an .1860
text by a priest named
Joseph Alois Daisenberger.
The Daisenberger version,
which has been acted every
10 years for more than a

*r

century, is filled with
statements and implica-
tions holding the Jejish
people solely responsible for
the death of Jesus: The
Rosner script maintains
that all mankind was re-
sponsible for Jesus' death,
and that his crucifixion
stemmed from a plot
hatched by Lucifer and his
evil spirits.
Representatives of the
National Conference of
Catholic Bishops, the Na-
tional Council of Churches
of Christ and the American
Jewish Committee, at a
news conference at the AJ-
Committee's headquarters,
called the council's decision
"a major step in consolidat-
ing the improved relation-
ship between Christians
