ADL’s Rabbi Greenberg on Benedict XVI/Cardinal Ratzinger

Some tradidionalist pundits would have people believe that Benedict XVI is reversing John Paul II’s work in Catholic-“Jewish” relations. This theory is ridiculous. Benedict is more progressive in this area than JPII and was himself responsible for much of what happened in Catholic-“Jewish” relations during the JPII pontificate as the ADL’s director of interfaith policy, Rabbi Eric J. Greenberg explains:

“The papacy of John Paul II was so overwhelmingly positive for Catholic-Jewish relations, but one must always remember that Cardinal Ratzinger was a key player,” said Rabbi Eric J. Greenberg, director of interfaith policy for the Anti-Defamation League. “He was a part of all this.” (“Jewish relations are at forefront,” Gary Stern, Gannett News Service, April 11, 2008)
