Rabbi Avraham Skorka, a close friend of Pope Francis since the day they started serving their respective community in Buenos Aires, escorted the Pope on his historic visit to the Holy Land.
On Wed., May 21, Rabbi Skorka, in front of some 100 journalists covering the Pope’s visit, spoke at the Jerusalem Press Club about the importance of the visit, the reactions to it and about his personal relationship with the Pope. He was interviewed by the Spanish journalist Henrique Cymerman.
The press conference was part of a joint venture of JPC and Fuente Latina, which hosted the Latino and Hispanic American journalists who have come to Israel to cover the Pope’s visit.
JPC is grateful to Michael Leven and the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles for their generous support in hosting these journalists.
