New Pope Visits German Synagogue

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/new_pope_visits_german_synagogue_20050826

Pope Benedict XVI's visit to a German synagogue was replete with symbolism: most notably, the potential for positive relations between the country's Jewish community and a pope who served in the German army during World War II. For Germany's Jewish community, which has tripled to more than 100,000 since 1989 with the arrival of former Soviet Jews, the live broadcast of Benedict's visit during World Youth Day in Germany served another purpose.
