The Chief Rabbi of Poland on Thursday described the Catholic Church's annual Day of Judaism as a "holy day."
Speaking at a livestreamed press conference on Jan. 14, Rabbi Michael Schudrich expressed gratitude for the annual commemoration observed by Polish Catholics since 1998.
"The Day of Judaism in the Church for me, a Rabbi, is a holy day," he said at the press conference, which unveiled the theme for this year's commemoration on Sunday, Jan. 17.
The theme will be "Life and death. 'Here, then, I have today set before you life and prosperity, death and doom.'" The quotation is from Deuteronomy 30:15 and the theme reflects the loss of life worldwide as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
