Writing in the Vatican's official newspaper, the head of Italy's Jewish community criticized Vatican policy but called for strengthened Catholic-Jewish ties. Renzo Gattegna, president of the umbrella Union of Italian Jewish Communities wrote in an Op-Ed published Wednesday that as a step toward "continuing with the initiatives dedicated to reciprocal understanding and friendship," it would be "useful, necessary and certainly appreciated" for the Vatican to openly and forcefully renounce "any manifestation of intent aimed at the conversion of the Jews."
