Daybreak: Is the Pope Jewish?

Nuremberg translator dies, a blast in Lebanon, and more in the news

Print Email

• Pope Benedict will visit Rome’s major synagogue in January. Reuters says this “significant because relations between the Vatican and Rome’s Jewish community—the oldest in the diaspora—have often been considered a bellwether of Catholic-Jewish relations worldwide.” [Reuters]
• An explosion occurred at the home of a Hezbollah official in southern Lebanon yesterday; the blast appears to be an accident, which Israel says is proof that the house was being used as a munitions bunker. [Haaretz]
• Richard Sonnenfeldt, the German Jewish refugee who served as chief interpreter for American prosecutors at the Nuremberg trials died Friday. [NYT]
