marked "again and again by
attempts at forgiveness,
understanding and mutual
acceptance. After
Auschwitz, the mission of
reconciliation and accep-
tance permits no deferral,"
he said.
Even as a child, said the
cardinal, he could never
understand how Jews could
be condemned by the Church
for the death of Jesus.
"Jews and Christians
should accept each other in
profound inner reconcilia-
tion, neither in disregard of
their faith nor in its denial,
but out of the depth of faith
itself. In their mutual recon-
ciliation they should become
a force for peace in and for
the world," he said.
Prominent rabbis from
abroad included Re.ne

rabbi of France and current

of European Rabbis, and
South Africa's Chief Rabbi
Cyril Harris.
Rabbi David Rosen, former
chief rabbi of Ireland and
current director of interfaith
relations for the Anti-
Defamation League in
Israel, served as the con-
ference chairman.
But several European and
Israeli Orthodox rabbis
scheduled to attend the con-
ference apparently suc-
cumbed to pressure from the
Orthodox and fervently Or-
thodox establishment not to
participate.
A statement was issued in
the names of Israel's chief
rabbis, Yisrael Lau and
Eliahu Bakshi-Doron, call-
ing on local rabbis not to at-
tend. Former Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren, originally
slated to participate,
withdrew and publicly
criticized the conference.
These rabbis maintained
the gathering was predi-
cated on the false assump-
tion that the two faiths
share common ground. They
said the meeting would con-
fer an unacceptable
legitimacy on Christianity.
Rabbi Sirat said he believ-
ed the protest may have
been a result of a
misunderstanding about the
