The "Jewish" Pope

Rabbi sings the praises of Pope John Paul II...and wonders about his successor.

From A Pope after the Jews' own heart:

"Pope John Paul II hails from Poland, ground zero of the Shoah, yet he became the greatest friend the Jewish people ever had in the Vatican. As we move ever closer to his final days, it is worth asking will his legacy outlast him, or will Pope John Paul II be an outstanding anomaly?"
