U.S. Jewish Leaders
To Meet With Pope

New York (JTA) — American
Jewish leaders last week ac-
cepted an invitation by the
Vatican to meet with Pope
John Paul II in Rome at the
end of August or early Septem-
ber, prior to the Pope's visit to
the United States and the
scheduled meeting with Jewish
leaders in Miami on September
11.
The invitation was extended
by Johannes Cardinal Wille-
brands, president of the
Vatican Commission for
Religious Relations with the
Jews, in a telephone call from
Rome to Rabbi Mordecai Wax-
man, chairman of the interna-
tional affairs department of the
Synagogue Council of America
(SCA) and chairman of the In-
ternational Jewish Committee
on Interreligious Consulta-
tions, (IJCIC).
After a two-and-a-half hour
meeting in the offices of the
SCA, representatives of the
IJCIC decided to accept the
invitation.
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, in-
ternational affairs director of
the American Jewish Commit-
tee (AJC), told reporters that
the meeting with the Pope
should "clear the air" and the
misunderstanding that
resulted from the Pope's recent
audience with President Kurt
Waldheim of Austria who is ac-
cused of being a Nazi war
criminal
"There are fundamental and
difficult matters to discuss,"
Tanenbaum told the Jewish
'Telegraphic Agency "We want
to review with the Holy See the
meeting with Waldheim and
the whole question of the
Pope's attitude toward the Nazi
Holocaust."
Tanenbaum said that the
Jewish leaders, by accepting
the Pope's invitation, are
hopeful that the meeting "will
open the way" for their par-
ticipation in a meeting with the

Pope in Miami on Sept. 11. The
Miami meeting was in doubt
following the Pope-Waldheim
meeting June 25, a meeting
that angered and upset
American Jewish leaders.
The Jewish community was
angered not only by the invita-
tion to Waldheim but also by
the Pope's failure to mention
the fact that Jews were the
main victims at the Maidanek
concentration camp. The Pope
visited Maidanek last May and
listed 14 nationalities whose
members were murdered by the
Nazis. He did not mention the
Jews, although 850,000 of them
were killed there.
A statement issued here by
the SCA said that the meeting
with the Pope in Rome would
last between 60 to 90 minutes.
It said that "the full agenda of
Catholic/ Jewish relations
would be discussed with the
Vatican Commission for
Religious Relations with the
Jews and the Vatican Secre-
tariat to be followed by a
meeting with Pope John Paul
II."
The members of the IJCIC
are The Synagogue Council of
America, World Jewish Con-
gress, American Jewish Com-
mittee, B'nai B'rith and the
Israel Interfaith Association.
Since 1972, IJCIC has repre-
sented the world Jewish com-
munity in discussions with the
Vatican on Catholic/Jewish rela-
tions.
Waxman said that other
issues to be discussed during
the Vatican meetings are anti-
Semitism and the Vatican's
continued refusal to recognize
the State of Israel. As to the
Miami meeting with the Pope,
Waxman said, "We reserve our
final decision on whether or not
to go to Miami for the
ceremonial meeting with the
Pope pending the outcome of
the forthcoming discussions at
the Vatican."

Alleged Con-Man
Held on Charges

Philadelphia — A 25-year-
old Jewish man allegedly con-
nected with a "father-and-
son" scam preying on Jewish
individuals and institutions
throughout the country is be-
ing held in Denver County
Jail on one misdemeanor and
three felony charges.
Daniel Mark Seiden was ar-
rested in Denver July 21 for
petty theft. He also is charg-
ed with failing to appear in
court on credit fraud charges
from 1985, for which he is be-
ing held without bond. He is
scheduled to be arraigned

Sept. 3 on the misdemeanor
charge.
Seiden, a lifelong resident
of Denver, is thought to be the
same man who bilked a
Philadelphia-area physician
out of $950 with a father-and-
son" scam in June.
In the elaborate scheme,
Seiden allegedly posed as the
son of a major contributor to
the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation who suddenly
found himself in Philadelphia
in need of an emergency loan.
His technique allegedly in-
volved having his "father"
