Communications Department - Archdiocese of Miami
Archbishop Thomas Wenski met with Rabbi Solomon Schiff and Consul General Chaim Shacham this week. His Excellency welcomed the consul general to Miami and also spoke to him about the interest of the US bishops on Israelís Knesset move to approve the Fundamental Agreement that was signed with the Vatican some years ago. This agreement would help settle questions regarding the ownership of church properties in Israel. Israelís move for implementing the Fundamental Agreement could help inspire confidence that negotiations on other more contested issues are possible.
