ROME — The new Con-
cordat agreed to by the Ita-
lian state and the Roman
Catholic Church will have
wide implications for the
Italian Jewish commu-
including control of its an-
cient cultural and historical
heritage in Rome.
The Concordat, signed
Feb. 20 by premier Bettino
Craxi, leader of Socialist
Party and Cardinal Agos-
tino Casaroli, the Vatican
Secretary of State, estab-
lishes a clear demarcation
between the temporal and
religious powers of the
church and advances reli-
gious pluralism in Italy. It

is by and large a revision of
the 1929 Concordat signed
between the church and the
Mussolini regime which
formalized Roman Catholi-
cism as the state religion.
Under the new Concor-
dat, this is no longer the
case, Catholic religious in-
struction is no longer com-
pulsory in Italian public
schools.
The revised relation-
ship between church and
state will effect the so-
called "mini-concordats"
between the state and
non-Catholic faiths
which are also up for re-
vision. Italian Protes-
tants will also sign re-
vised agreements with
the government. The
Union of Italian Jewish
Communities is lagging
behind.
No date has been set for a
definitive revision, mainly
because an existing draft
still contains several points
of controversy within the
Jewish community itself.
But the concordat between
the Catholic Church and the
state contains several arti-
cles which will doubtlessly
serve as guidelines for
Jewish requests for re-
visions.
Roman Catholicism is no
longer "the sole religion of
the Italian state" nor are
other religions merely
"permitted." In principle,
all religions now have equal
rights. Primary and secon-
dary public school classes in
"the Catholic religion" are
no longer "compulsory,"
with students of other faiths
or ideologies being allowed
"exemption" from religious
instruction.
The teaching of "the
Catholic religion" is still
guaranteed by the govern-
ment, but as an elective sub-
ject. By the same token, a
revised agreement with the
Jewish community could
provide governmental
guarantees for the teaching
of "the Jewish religion" in
public schools, at the re-
quest of students and par-
ents.
Students of theology
remain deferred from
military service, as are
university students gen-
erally. The clergy may
perform civil service in
place of military service
or be exempt; or clergy
may serve as chaplains
with the armed forces. It
follows that the same
rights and privileges
(some already granted)
will be valid for Jewish
schools, rabbinical
seminarians and the
Jewish "clergy" when
the final revision is
drafted.
Of special interest to the
Jewish community is the
Concordat's provision that

the cultural and historical
patrimony of the church
will be protected and
guarded by special joint
state-church commissions.
The Jewish historical and
archeological patrimony in
Italy is in a sad state of
decay at present for lack of
funds. But the moment may
be at hand for Italian Jewry
to request state help, based
on the Catholic precedent.
