Rabbi Charged With Shoplifting To Meet Pope Benedict XVI

SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) — A rabbi who temporarily resigned last month as head of South America’s largest Jewish Congregation after being arrested in Florida on shoplifting charges, said he will meet with Pope Benedict XVI when the pontiff visits in May.

Henry I. Sobel, who for more than 30 years led the Sao Paulo Jewish Congregation, was arrested in March on three counts of theft for allegedly stealing ties, with a total value of $680, from several upscale stores in Palm Beach, Fla. He was released after posting $3,000 bail.
