Publication Furthering Christian-jewish Friendship Started in Spain

For the first time in the history of Spain, the publication of a bulletin devoted to furthering Christian-Jewish relations was started in that country, it was reported here today from Madrid.

The publication, “Amistad Judeo Christiana,” is being issued with the approval of the Bishopric of Madrid, and with favorable letters from the Archbishop of Saragossa and the Bishop of Huelva. The publication also contains articles by Max Mind, president of the Jewish community of Madrid and by Dr. Solomon Gaon of Britain, a Sephardic rabbinical leader.

A tribute to the late Pope John XXIII, in the first issue of the publication, received widespread favorable attention in Spain. The magazine is to be published regularly under sponsorship of the Christian-Jewish Society, which was founded last year.
