.- Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput is among nine delegates, including New York Governor George Pataki, who have been asked to travel to Spain next week for an international conference on anti-Semitism. The Archbishop will be part of a U.S. State Department delegation who will travel to the conference, sponsored by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, a coalition of 55 nations, including the United States, which focuses on problems of discrimination, oppression and religious intolerance.

The theme of the conference, which will be opened by Spain’s King Juan Carlos, is “Anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance.”

Archbishop Chaput was invited onto the panel because of his membership in the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Other U.S. panelists in the delegation will include, Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Ambassador Edward O'Donnell, the U.S. special envoy on Holocaust issues, and Kamal Nawash, president of the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism.
