Israeli chief rabbinate forbids concessions to Vatican

Catholic World News - May 06, 2009

The ruling comes in response to reports that President Shimon Peres has given his support to the proposal, hoping to end a long impasse over the completion of a juridical accord to establish the rights of Catholic institutions in Israel.
