Jews in Cologne, Germany, are preparing to welcome the pope. On Friday, Pope Benedict XVI is slated to be a guest of the Cologne Synagogue during the Catholic Church’s World Youth Day celebrations in that city. Local Jewish leaders see the historic visit of the German-born pope as proof of his commitment to interfaith relations and say they’re not troubled by recent tensions over his failure to deplore terrorism against Israel.
