our august Emperor, is the only
one which has been given to us
to express to the philanthropists
of all countries, and notably to
the ecclesiastics, all the senti-
ments of gratitude with which
our hearts are penetrated
toward them and their predeces-
sors."
The assembled delegates
passed the following resolutions:
"Resolved, That the deputies
from the Empire of France and
from the Kingdom of Italy at
the Hebrew Synod penetrated
with gratitude for the successive
benefactions of the Christian
clergy in the past centuries in
favor of the Israelites of the
different parts of Europe; full of
acknowledgements for the recep-
tion which the different Pontiffs
and many other ecclesiastics
have given at different times to
the Israelites of different coun-
tries where barbarity, prejudice
and ignorance united, perse-
cuted and expelled the Jews
from the bosom of society.
"Resolved, That the expres-
sion of our sentiments shall be
placed on the records of the day,
that it may ever remain as an
authentic testimony of the
gratitude of the Israelites of this
assembly for the benefactions
which the generations which
have preceded them have re-
ceived from the ecclesiastics of
the different countries of
Europe."
We might supplement this
authoritative statement by cit-
ing many instances of the famil-
iar friendship which has existed

between the Roman Pontiffs and
distinguished Hebrews in Rome.
During the revival of letters in
the West learned Jews were
especially patronized by the
Popes because of their oriental
scholarship; while the Pontiffs
— especially Boniface IX, Julius
III, Martin V and Paul III —
selected for their trusted physi-
cians men of Hebrew faith and
race.
Granting the Catholic griev-
ance that Jews fail to accept
Catholic allies throughout the
that the Catholic Church failed
miserably to prevent untold
tragedy by permitting
encyclicals like those of Pope
Innocent IV and Cardinal
Lorenzo Ganganelli to remain
mere parchments in the Vati-
can's archives. The publication
and spread of these documents
would have gained for Jewry
Cathlic allies throughout the
world who undoubtedly would
have defended innocent victims
when they were brutally and
mercilessly attacked during the
spread of the ritual murder
libels. Because this libel is still
being spread in supposedly
civilized countries like Ger-
many, it is perhaps not yet too
late for the Catholic Church to
compile the various sentiments
by her Pontiffs on Jewish issues
and to make them a matter of
public record so that it may
truly be said that Catholicism
has come to the front as the de-
fender of truth and justice and
the defier of calumny, even
when it is spread about the
blasphemed Jews.

Ruling To Hud Jews?

New York (JTA) — The Sup-
reme Court ruled today by an
8-1 vote that a Connecticut state
law protecting the right of em-
ployees to absent themselves
from work on their Sabbath is
unconstitutional. But' a Jewish
expert on such laws said in New
York that the ruling seemed un-
likely to affect similar laws pro-
tecting observant Jews in other
states.
Dennis Rapps, executive di-
rector of the National Jewish
Commission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA), provided that
analysis. COLPA and the
American Jewish Congress
acted as attorneys for Donald
Thornton, a former store man-
ager for one of the Caldor chain
stores in Connecticut. The
Jewish organizations entered
the case when the state Sup-
reme Court ruled it unconstitu-
tional in 1983.
Rapps said the Jewish organ-
izations entered the case at that
point, seeking a Supreme Court
ruling because, though Thornton
was a Presbysterian and had
sought to be off work on Sun-
days, the issue involved similar
laws in many states under
which Jews have such protec-
tion. He said the Supreme
Court, in its ruling last week,
focused on the "absolute nature"
of the Connecticut law, meaning
that the Connecticut law had no

provision, as do all other such
state laws requiring the em-
ployer to try to make "reason-
able accomodation" to such re-
quests for Sabbath absences.
Under that clause, an employer
may require a Sabbath observer
to work on his or her Sabbath if
his or her absence would create
severe hardship for the em-
ployer's business.
