Leaders Say Jewish-Catholic Relationship At Risk

Major American Jewish groups say their relationship with Roman Catholic leaders is at risk because of a recent statement by U.S. bishops' on salvation and evangelizing.

Jewish leaders say that they interpret the bishops' new document as a plan to evangelize Jews during interfaith dialogue. Jews say they can't participate in a dialogue under those conditions.

The bishops had issued the declaration in June. They said that the church doesn't evangelize Jews but will invite them to the faith when it's appropriate.

The Jewish protest was made Thursday by the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, and rabbis representing the three largest branches of American Judaism.
