  • Description

    FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MEMORY JEWS AND ROMAN CATHOLICS WERE UNITED IN SPAIN TODAY FOR A JOINT RELIGIOUS SERVICE, HELD AT NEW CHURCH OF SANTA RITA, IN MADRID.

    THE SERVICE WAS ORGANISED BY THE JEWISH/ CATHOLIC FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY, AND MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE OF THE TWO FAITHS ATTENDED.

    THE SERVICE WAS KNOWN AS A 'PARALITURGICAL JEWISH CHRISTIAN SERVICE'. THE PRAYERS WERE SELECTED FOR THEIR COMMON INTEREST TO JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.

    AMONG THE PRAYERS OFFERED WERE THREE PSALMS, READ BY A RABBI AND A ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIEST. THERE WAS ALSO A SERMON IN YIDDISH.

    THERE ARE AN ESTIMATED 7,000 JEWS IN SPAIN, 2,500 OF THEM IN MADRID.

    RELIGIOUS FREEDOM LAW WAS PASSED BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT ON FRIDAY, ALLOWING NON-CATHOLIC IN SPAIN FULL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.
