Fact is, more Americans
may die by the fork than by
any other weapon. That's
because so many of them
use it irresponsibly. Like
to fill up on high-fat, high-
cholesterol foods. Foods
that can load the blood with
cholesterol, which can build
up plaque in their arteries,
increasing their risk of
heart attacks and threaten-
ing their lives. So next time
you pick up a fork, remem-
ber to handle it as you
would any other weapon.
For self-defense, not

Jewish, Vatican Leaders
Visit Eastern Europe

New York (JTA) — Repre-
sentatives of world Jewry
and Vatican officials will
travel together in Eastern
Europe next month to
implement a 1990 landmark
agreement to purge anti-
Semitism from Catholic
The agreement, known as
the Prague Declaration,
came out of a September
1990 meeting of Jewish and
Vatican leaders in the
Czechoslovak capital, the
first between the two sides
after three years of strained
The final document con-
demned anti-Semitism as a
sin against God and human-
ity and called for systematic
efforts to uproot religiously
inspired anti-Semitism in
liturgy, textbooks, seminary
training and Catholic media.
The trip, scheduled for
Feb. 15-23, will create Jew-
ish- Catholic liaison com-
mittees in each of the four
cities the group will visit.
The committees will then
oversee the day-to-day
implementation of the mea-
sures to eradicate any
vestiges of anti- Semitism.
Five representatives of
IJCIC, the International
Jewish Committee on Inter-
religious Consultations, and
three senior Vatican officials
will visit Warsaw, Krakow,
Prague and Budapest.
They will also stop at
Auschwitz, to check on the
progress of the new
Carmelite convent being
built a short distance away
from the notorious death
camp. The nuns now living
in a former storehouse on
the grounds of Auschwitz
are scheduled to be moved
into their new quarters by
In each city they visit, the
delegation members will
meet with Jewish commun-
ity leaders, local and nation-
al Catholic authorities,
members of local Christian-
Jewish cooperative organ-
izations, and government of-
ficials in charge of inter-
religious affairs.
One of the Catholic offi-
cials with whom the IJCIC
representatives may meet is
Cardinal Jozef Glemp,
Poland's Catholic primate,
who was at the center of con-
troversy for several years
after he made remarks Jews
considered anti-Semitic.
When Cardinal Glemp
visited the United States
last October, he apologized
to American Jewish leaders

for the hurt that he said he
may have caused, but fell
short of promising to repeat
his statements of retraction
and regret to his coun-
trymen in person once he
returned to Poland.
The statements he made
while in the United States,
however, were published in
the Polish media.
While some American
Jewish leaders were
satisfied with Cardinal
Glemp's efforts to patch ties,
many were ambivalent and
others were unhappy.
It is not yet known precise-
ly which Polish Catholic
leaders the IJCIC-Vatican
delegation will be scheduled
to meet with, but if Cardinal
Glemp is one of them, it will
be up to each member of the
Jewish group to decide

The Prague
Declaration came
out of a September
1990 meeting of
Jewish and
Vatican leaders in
the Czechoslovak

whether or not he wants to
participate, according to a
spokesman for Edgar
Bronfman, IJCIC's chair-
"We are not telling the
Catholic side who their
representatives are, just as
they are not telling us who
ours are," said Elan
Steinberg, executive director
of the World Jewish Con-
gress and a spokesman for
Bronfman, who is president
of the WJC.
IJCIC was "not willing to
let this mission be
sidetracked" because of the
Cardinal Glemp controver-
sy, Mr. Steinberg said.
The Jewish participants in
the trip include Rabbi A.
James Rudin of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee;
Rabbi David Rosen of the
Anti-Defamation League;
Rabbi Stanley David, Dr.
Leon Feldman and Rabbi
Mark Winer of the Syn-
agogue Council of America;
and Gerhart Riegner of the
World Jewish Congress, who
will represent IJCIC's Euro-
pean secretariat.
Implementation of the
Prague Declaration will also
be high on the agenda when
Jewish and Vatican repre-
sentatives meet in
Baltimore in May.
