Benedict XVI in the Synagogue of Rome

Tags: Pope, Jewish
A visit looking to the future rather than the past – that could be one of the ways to describe the presence of Pope Benedict XVI in the Synagogue of Rome, in the afternoon of Sunday January 17, 2010. During the two hours the Pope spent there, there were indeed references to past conflicts and present disagreements, but the main accent was on what Catholics and Jews can do together for the good of mankind. In his speech the Pope invited both communities to a shared effort based on their common roots in the Ten Commandments.
