Argentine Catholic Prelate Pledges Closer Ties with Jews, Other Faiths

A pledge to seek closer bonds with all religious groups in Argentina, with “full respect” for people of all faiths, was made here today by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Juan Carlos Aramburu, newly appointed Archbishop Coadjutor of the Buenos Aires Archdiocese.

The prelate made that pledge when he received a delegation representing DAIA, central organization of Argentine Jewry. His pledge was regarded as indication of improved relations between the Catholic hierarchy and the local Jewish population.
