The Vatican Radio will broadcast an entire program of Jewish interest tomorrow night, the eve of Chanukah, Vatican officials revealed. This is believed to be the first program of its nature to be carried by the Vatican broadcasting services. The 30-minute program will include Hebrew melodies, Jewish liturgical chants and traditional Sephardic music. Alice Gabbi, Jewish mezzo-soprano, will be featured on the program.
