Pope Francis Reaffirms Need to Repel Anti-Semitism

Earlier this month Pope Francis met with members of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. The Holy Father said anti-Semitism in all its forms is contrary to Christian principles: “I reaffirm that the Catholic Church feels particularly obliged to do all that is possible with our Jewish friends to repel anti-Semitic tendencies.” And this week Pope Francis accepted a new edition of the Torah from Rabbi Abraham Skorka and a delegation of Jewish leaders.
