Benedict XVI will most likely be the last pope to have the Holocaust and Vatican II in his living memory. What does that fact mean for the church’s future relations with Jews?
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach tries to create a Jesus who could bridge two faiths. Too bad he uses discredited scholarship and ignores important teachings.
World War II-era Pope Pius XII is not just controversial among Jews. He is a divisive figure within a Catholic Church riven by splits between traditionalists and reformers.
It’s a disturbing pattern: Year after year, denomination after denomination, mainline Protestant churches put forward resolutions, reports and policies that are biased against Israel. Jews, in turn, are exasperated by the calls for divestment, statements dismissive of Israel’s security needs and theologically charged denunciations of Israeli policies.
