Pope mourns death of Roman Jewish leader

Catholic World News - January 24, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI has sent a message of condolence to the Jewish community of Rome upon the death of Tullia Zevi, the former president of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities, who died on January 22 at the age of 91.

The Pope recalled Zevi—who was a noted author and journalist as well as a Jewish community leader—for “her exalted moral profile and authoritative contribution to the development of values of democracy, peace and freedom in Italian society, and to sincere and profound dialogue between Jews and Christians.”
