B’nai B’rith Council Discusses Vatican Document on Jews

The significance of the recommendations on Jews now being discussed at the Ecumenical Council was discussed here today at the meeting of the B’nai B’rith International Council, the coordinating body of B’nai B’rith groups in 42 countries.

Label A. Katz, president of B’nai B’rith and chairman of its International Council, said that if the recommendations are endorsed, “Jewish communities would seek to work cooperatively with Catholic Church authorities to implement its spirit and purpose.” B’nai B’rith Council members from Latin America and Europe said the Church action could have most profound implications for uprooting anti-Semitism.
