A group of 160 Jewish leaders will meet with the Pope. The group, including rabbis, cantors, diplomats and other Jewish officials from the United States, Israel and Europe, will meet Pope John Paul II on Jan. 18 at the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City. Pave The Way, the ecumenical organization sponsoring the trip, is billing the papal audience as the largest-ever meeting of Jewish leaders with a sitting Pope.
