Israeli priest, convert from Judaism, named to top Vatican tribunal

Catholic World News - June 03, 2011

In Israel, the media have taken notice of the appointment of an Israeli-born priest, a convert from Judaism, to the top appeals court at the Vatican.

Father David Maria Jaeger, a native of Tel Aviv, was named early in May as Prelate Auditor of the Roman Rota. Father Jaeger, a canon-law professor at the Antonianum University, has been prominent as an adviser to the Holy See on Jewish-Catholic affairs, and particularly on negotiations to establish the juridical status of the Church in the Holy Land.

    Careful with this one. One of the captions in my e-mail said "convert TO Judaism." Big difference.
