RABBI MORDECAI WAXMAN

Following are excerpts
from the texts of an address
delivered to Pope John Paul
II by Rabbi Mordecai
Waxman, honorary
president of the Synagogue
Council of America, on
behalf of the Jewish
community of America, and
of the Pope's address in
response. (In delivering his
address the Pope did not
use Biblical or other
citations, but these were
provided in the printed text.)

The Waldheim Visit

Such meetings took place
last week at the Vatican and
at Castel Gandolfo. These
conversations, although
quickly arranged, were high-
ly significant. You and high
church leaders listened to the
deeply felt concerns of the
Jewish community that were
raised following last June's
state visit to the Vatican by
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim, who has never ex-
pressed regrets for his Nazi
past.
Obviously, the differences
expressed at last week's
meeting have not been re-
solved. However, this oppor-
tunity for us to express the
pain and anger of the Jewish
community in face-to-face
meetings and for you and
leaders of your church to

Special to The Jewish News

t is our honor and pleas-
ure to welcome you to the
United States. We do so
on behalf of the Jewish orga-
nizations who are represented
here today; organizations
that have been in fruitful con-
versations with the Roman
Catholic Church through the
years . . .
Throughout the United
States, American Jews and
Catholics work in concert
with one another on a wide
range of social justice issues
and fight for global human
rights and against all forms of
racism and bigotry. Our com-
mon agenda has always em-
braced, and our future agen-
da will continue to embrace,
the many crucial problems of
the human family as a whole.
One of the major achieve-
ments of our joint encounters
is the shared recognition that
each community must be un-
derstood in its own terms, as
it understands itself. It is par-
ticularly gratifying that our
Catholic-Jewish meetings are
conducted in a spirit of candor
and mutual respect.

Berries 'n Bon Bons

Rabbi Waxman

listen with respect and open-
ness represents an important
confirmation of the progress
our communities have made
in recent decades. One of the
results of those meetings will
be an instrumentality to
develop closer communication
and contact between our
communities.
A basic belief of our Jewish
faith is the need "to mend the
world under the sovereignty
of God . . . L'takken olam
b'malkhut Shaddai." To mend
the world means to do God's
work in the world, It is in this
spirit that Catholics and Jews
should continue to address
the social, moral, economic
and political problems of the
world. Your presence here in
the United States affords us
the opporutnity to reaffirm
our commitment to the sacred
imperative of "tikkun olam,"
"the mending of the world."
But before we can mend the
world, we must first mend
ourselves. A meeting such as
this is part of the healing pro-
cess that is now visibly under
way between our two com-
munities. It is clear that the
teachings proclaimed in
Nostra Aetate are becoming
major concerns of the
Catholic Church and under
your leadership are being im-
plemented in the teachings of
the church and in the life of
Catholics everywhere.
Catholics and Jews have
begun the long overdue pro-
cess of reconciliation. We still
have some way to go because
Catholic-Jewish relations is
one of this century's most
positive developments.
We remain concerned with
the persistence of anti-
Semitism — the hatred of
Jews and Judaism, which is
on the rise in some parts of
the world. We are encouraged
