Pope Shows Interest in JTA at Reception

Download PDF for this date

Keen interest in the work of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was manifested by Pope Pius XI. when he received the foreign correspondents in Vatican City. His Holiness conversed with David Kleinlerer, who represents the Agency in Rome, and asked for detailed information about the organization and work of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

This is the second time that Kleinlerer has been received in audience at the Vatican.
