Israeli priest, convert from Judaism, named to top Vatican tribunal
CWN - 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.
