Benedict Wants the World to be Conscious of the Symbolic Significance of his Passover Eve Synagogue Visit

April 14, 2008

Benedict publicly acknowledged the fact that Christ was crucified on Passover eve in his homily of Holy Thursday, March 20, 2008 which coincided with Purim Eve:

The Pope made [the following] observation Holy Thursday in his homily during the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the Basilica of St. John Lateran … “According to John, Jesus died on the cross precisely at the moment in which, in the temple, the Passover lambs were being sacrificed. His death and the sacrifice of the lambs coincided.

“This means that he died on the eve of Passover … “

(“Pope Notes Hypothesis on Date of Passover,” Zenit, April 6, 2008)

Let there be no doubt that Benedict is entirely conscious of the symbolic significance of his visit to a NY synagogue on Passover eve this Friday, April 18, 2008. Having publicly drawn attention to the fact that Christ was crucified on Passover eve only a month ago, it’s as if Benedict wants the world to also be conscious of it.

Not surprisingly, we see denial-based speculation among traditionalists that the Passover eve synagogue visit may have only been a rumor or was canceled due to its absence from the official itinerary for the papal visit. These people have missed the fact that the visit is a “personal and informal visit, which is not part of [the Pope’s] official program” according to Monsignor David Malloy, general secretary of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. It was never on the official itinerary. Neither is his private meeting with the rabbis and Judaic power-brokers on the day before the synagogue visit, Thursday April 17th, which is the actual anniversary of the night Jesus was betrayed by Judas to the Pharisees.

On the following day Benedict will visit a synagogue of Orthodox Judaism, the religion which holds that Jesus was a sorcerer rightly executed on Passover eve for criticizing the Pharisees and leading Israel astray–on the anniversary of the day which their Talmud claims that this claimed righteous execution took place, and the day on which the Gospel records that the most terrible crime in history–the crucifixion of God-incarnate–took place.

And despite this and countless other such acts of treachery, there are still hysterical demands for further “teshuva” and “tikkun” from the modern-day spiritual heirs of the Pharisees whom Benedict calls our “elder brothers.” Witness the fruits of “reconciliation” with “The Jews.”

Rabbi Comments on the "Very Symbolic" Timing of Benedict’s Synagogue Visit

April 5, 2008

As I said, the symbolic significance of Benedict’s visit to a synagogue on the eve of Passover would not be lost on the rabbis:

The pope’s trip to Park East Synagogue on April 18 will be especially meaningful because of its timing, said Rabbi Arthur Schneier, the congregation’s spiritual leader.

“For him to stop in at my synagogue on the eve of Passover really is a very symbolic and significant step,” Schneier said. (“Rabbis applaud pope’s visit to Manhattan synagogue,” Carl MacGowan, Newsday, April 3, 2008)

Adding to the terrible omen of this visit is the fact that Passover Eve falls on a Friday (Parasceve) this year, as is the day of the crucifixion in St. John’s Gospel. Believe me when I tell you, the symbolism of this act of unspeakable treachery will not be missed by the Orthodox rabbis of the world, regardless of the poses they may strike for the public.

Pope to Visit New York Synagogue

RACHEL ZOLL – Associated Press

April 3, 2008

NEW YORK (AP) — During his first papal trip to the United States, Pope Benedict XVI will visit a synagogue led by … Rabbi Arthur Schneier …

“By this personal and informal visit, which is not part of his official program, His Holiness wishes to express his good will toward the local Jewish community as they prepare for Passover,” said Monsignor David Malloy, general secretary of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Passover begins at sundown on April 19.

Separately, the pope has scheduled a meeting with Jewish leaders and representatives of other faiths for April 17 in Washington.

Park East Synagogue is a modern Orthodox congregation that was founded in 1888 and is located near the United Nations. Benedict will address the U.N. the morning of April 18.

Schneier, 78, has led the synagogue since 1962, while promoting religious freedom and tolerance worldwide. He founded the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, which promotes interfaith tolerance, and received the 2001 U.S. Presidential Citizens Medal for service to the nation.

The pope has been reaching out to Jews, following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, who became the first pope to set foot in a synagogue in 1986, when he visited Rome’s main synagogue.

Some tensions arose recently over a Good Friday prayer Benedict revived from the old Latin rite that had historically been used as an excuse for violence and discrimination against Jews. Benedict revised the prayer to address Jewish fears, but some Jewish leaders worried that the changes did not go far enough …
