New York(JTA) — Jewish
leaders were gratified by the
Vatican's public endorse-
ment Sept. 19 of a 1987 ac-
cord calling for the reloca-
tion of the Carmelite con-
vent at Auschwitz.
They were particularly
pleased by its offer to con-
tribute funds to establish an
interfaith center away from
the grounds of the former
death camp, where the Car-
melite nuns are to be
relocated.
Those who had urged a
freeze in relations with the
Vatican until the issue was
resolved called Tuesday for a
restoration of formal talks
with the Catholic Church.
Relations between Jews
and the church have deterio-
rated since Feb. 22, the date
by which the convent was to
have been moved. The dead-
line, specified in the 1987
accord, passed with little
sign of progress in relocating
the convent.
Jewish leaders had re-
peatedly called for Pope
John Paul II to state his
support for the 1987 agree-
ment, which was signed in
Geneva by nine 'world Jew-
ish leaders and nine repre-
sentatives of the Catholic
Church, including four Eu-
ropean cardinals.
But for more than a year,
the Vatican remained silent
on the matter, apparently
deferring to the Catholic
Church in Poland, which the
pope formerly headed.
That silence was broken
Tuesday, when Cardinal
Johannes Willebrands, pres-
ident of the Vatican Com-
mission for Religious Rela-
tions With Judaism, issued a
statement offering to con-
tribute financially to the
construction of the interfaith
center.
"The Holy See is convinced
that such a center would
contribute in a significant
manner to the development
of good relations between
Christians and Jews," the
statement read.
"In order to support the
realization of this important
but costly project, the Holy
See is prepared to make its
own financial contribution,"
it said.
The head of the Polish
Church, Cardinal Jozef
Glemp, had raised the finan-
cial issue as one of the obsta-
cles to the removal and
relocation of the convent.
Tuesday's Vatican state-
ment refers to a remark
made by the pope in an ad-
dress to the Jewish commu-
