A UNIQUE SPIRITED CAMP FOR BOYS AND GIRLS
AGES 6-15
7, 4 & 3 WEEK PERIODS

Rome (JTA) — The Vatican
will hold a concert in
memory of the 6 million
Jews who perished in the
Holocaust, a spokesman an-
nounced, in a further indica-
tion of warming ties between
the Holy See and world
Jewry.
The concert will be held at
the Vatican on Yom
Hashoah, or Holocaust Re-
membrance Day, which this
year falls on April 7.
In making the announce-
ment, a Vatican statement
described the Holocaust as
"a terrible abyss which has
thrown a black light on the
terrifying depth of human
evil."
A concert, the statement
said, would be the best way
to commemorate the Shoah,
since music is the best way
of reaching people's souls.
"The intent of the concert
is to unite the hearts of those
who hear it in the memory of
terrible events, which
should never be forgotten so
that they are never re-
peated," the statement said.
The announcement of the
Vatican concert came just
six weeks after the Vatican
and Israel signed their
historic agreement to estab-
lish full diplomatic rela-
tions.
Rabbi A. James Rudin,
interreligious affairs direc-
tor for the American Jewish
Committee, who was in-
volved in planning the
event, said the concert dem-
onstrates the pope's com-
mitment to the furthering of
Catholic-Jewish relations.
"It's one more sign of the
enormous sea change that's
taken place between
Catholics and Jews," Rabbi
Rudin said.

Gilbert Levine will lead the orchestra.

The concert, to be held in
the Vatican's modernistic
Paul W auditorium, will be
attended by Pope John Paul
II, Rome's chief rabbi, Elio
Toaff, and other senior re-
ligious officials.
It will include "Kol Nidre"
by Max Bruch, the adagio of
Beethoven's Ninth Sym-
phony, and "Psalm 92," as
arranged by Franz Schubert
for the inauguration of a
new synagogue in Vienna in
1826.
Concluding the concert
will be selections from
Leonard Bernstein's
Kaddish Symphony, which
includes the recitation of the
Jewish prayer for the dead,
and two of his Chichester
Psalms, which also contain
passages in Hebrew.
The concert will be per-
formed by the London
Philharmonic orchestra in
conjunction with the Vat-
ican's Cappella Giulia
Choir.
Leading the orchestra will
be Gilbert Levine, an
American conductor who has
spent more than three years
attempting to arrange such
a concert.
Originally, he had hoped
to be able to have it out-
doors, in Rome's historic
Jewish ghetto.
Mr. Levine, whose wife is
the daughter of a Holocaust
survivor from Slovakia,
served for four years as di-
rector of the Krakow
Philharmonic Orchestra in
Poland, where he became
involved in interreligious
issues.
In Krakow, he was in-
strumental in setting up and
conducting several concerts
at the 19th-century Temple
Synagogue. CI
