Jewish and Roman Catholic leaders have agreed to work together to combat rising anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe and to forge a closer relationship between the two religions after a recent period of friction. The agreement was announced Thursday after a four-day meeting in Prague between the Vatican's Commission on Religious Relations with the Jews and the International Jewish Committee on Inter-Religious Consultations.

Re "Vatican Apology on Holocaust Too Vague, Some Say," March 17: Cardinal Edward J. Cassidy called the Vatican act of repentance "more than an apology." This might be a classic case of two cultures' confusion caused by different language. I believe the report and its "more than an apology" is directed toward the Jews. If this is the case, the Vatican should be sensitive to these language differences. If the report is truly meant to be an apology to the Jews, then Pope John Paul II should clarify and use the words, "We apologize to the Jewish people and the Jewish nation for the inaction of the Catholics."

Pope John Paul II appears to be close to delivering on a 1987 pledge that the Vatican would assess Catholic treatment of Jews during the Holocaust and church teaching that some contend fostered anti-Semitism. The tract on one of the most sensitive and complicated issues confronting the church is being produced by the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews.

And, unlike most thrillers, the book has the advantage of being all true. Wise spent nearly a decade prying this story from reluctant U.S. government officials, then added to what he learned from Russian sources.

Building on its ties with Israel and its effort to reconcile Roman Catholics and Jews, the Vatican celebrated Hanukkah for the first time Tuesday, lighting a candle in a sheltered garden where popes have strolled for centuries. "There is much darkness in the world around us. There is much need of light," declared Cardinal Edward Cassidy before lighting the candle on Pope John Paul II's behalf, shielded from a late afternoon drizzle by an aide holding an umbrella.
