JNS.org – Pope Francis met with the chief rabbi of Rome, Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni, on Monday at the Vatican.

The Vatican said in a statement that the meeting was “cordial” and covered topics ranging from the immigration crisis to other issues facing Europe, adding that the two leaders discussed how religion can play a role in addressing such issues as well as the possibility of future collaborative projects between the Jewish community and Catholic Church.

Last week, Pope Francis met with a delegation of leading European rabbis at the Vatican to discuss Jewish-Christian relations and the ongoing surge of antisemitism in Europe, with the pontiff saying that the “great tragedy” of the Holocaust should remain a “warning for present and future generations.”
