Pope Benedict XVI visited Rome’s Central Synagogue on Sunday, but his visit was not without controversy. Benedict is being criticized for his moves to push WWII Pope Pius XII toward sainthood. According to an AP story published last week, some Jews and historians have accused Pius of “not doing enough to stop the Holocaust.” Given what you may know about Pius XII, do you believe the criticism Benedict faces is justified? The Rev. Bryan Griem:  Protestants have little regard for the whole practice of officially designating sainthood.

In commemoration of Yom Hashoah, Jewish Holocaust Remembrance Day, a Holocaust survivor will speak at Temple Sinai of Glendale on Sunday, April 30, at 10:15 a.m. about how his adoption by a Christian family saved his life. George Rishfeld was born in 1939 to a Jewish family in Warsaw. When the Nazis seized the city and began rounding up Jews, his parents, fearing for their son's life, left 2-year-old Rishfeld with a Catholic family who taught him their religious traditions. His parents survived, and the family reunited after the war. The expression "Righteous Gentile" honors non-Jews such as this family, who risked their lives aiding Jews during World War II. The event is sponsored by the Temple Sinai Brotherhood.

As part of its annual Holocaust Remembrance Day observance on April 15, the Brotherhood of Temple Sinai of Glendale has invited two Holocaust survivors to speak of their experiences. This year, the speakers are Anna Deutsch and Mike Schwartz. Deutsch and Schwartz were both 17 when their personal nightmares began. Deutsch was born in Hungary and Schwartz was from Romania. Now married, their paths never crossed during that terrible period of history. But their common bond was something they were able to share when they met during the last decade.

What do Richard Nixon, George W. Bush and Barack Obama have in common? Polemicists have compared each of these presidents to the most-evil, genocidal, mass murderer in human history, Adolf Hitler. This activity returned, most recently in 2004, with two video spots, submitted to MoveOn.Org’s website as part of its “Bush in 30 seconds” online campaign. The ads compared President Bush to Hitler. After much criticism, the ads were pulled from the website.

No, Mr. Puglia, society is not becoming too sensitive [“Sensitivity and Gabrielle Leko,” Thoughts from Dr. Joe, Nov. 24]. I suggest that you read what Abraham Joshua Heschel has written on the topic of sensitivity. What I have concluded from Heschel's writings is that as sensitivity decreases, callousness increases. We raise our children to be kind to their family and friends. We hold workshops in the schools about bullying to put a stop to this type of behavior. Our social studies curriculum has been updated to teach our students about the Holocaust.
