FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1989

New York — The Interna-
tional Interreligious Entity
(IIE), a joint cooperative
effort to improve corn-
munications between the
Jewish community and the
international Christian
churches, was formed last
week by the American
Jewish Committee, the
American Jewish Congress
and the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The new group appears to
be an alternative to the In-
ternational Jewish Com-
mittee on Interreligious
Consultations, or IJCIC, the
umbrella group that has
been representing world
Jewry to the Vatican.
Neither AJCongress or
ADL is a member of IJCIC.
AJCommittee, which did
belong to the umbrella
group, decided last week to
pull out, a move that left
IJCIC without a chairman.
The new group with essen-
tially the same purpose
comes at a time of severe
strain in Jewish-Catholic re-
lations over a number of
issues, including the conti-
nuing presence of a
Carmelite convent at the
Auschwitz death camp in
Poland.
AJCommittee this week
was urged to reconsider its
decision to leave IJCIC by
the group's other consti-
tuents, the Synagogue
Council of America, the
World Jewish Congress and
B'nai B'rith.
"It is not good for the
Jewish community to pre-
sent a sense of disunity or
competition among various

agencies," said Rabbi Henry
Michelman, executive vice
president of SCA.
But the formal announce-
ment by AJCommittee,
AJCongress and ADL made
clear that, whatever the
reasons for the AJCom-
mittee's withdrawal, there
are no prospects for its
return.
Ira Silverman, executive
vice president of AJCom-
mittee, would only say that
he thought his organization
"could be effective in an-
other configuration" and
that his group feels more
comfortable working
together with "organi-
zations of closer kinship."
Formation of the new body
was announced by Silver-
man, Henry Siegman, exec-
utive director of the
American Jewish Congress,
and Abraham Foxman, na-
tional director of the ADL.
Those serving in the
Secretariat of the new group
will be Rudin, Rabbi Leon
Klenicki of ADL and Dr.
Michael Wyschogrod of
AJCongress.
