On Tuesday, the Jewish Community Relations Council hosted an evening of reflection and camaraderie at the San Francisco residence of Dr. Andy David, the Consul General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest.  The dinner was held to reflect on and honor the recent visit of Pope Francis to Israel.  Archbishop Cordileone and I, along with other local Catholic representatives, spent some time reflecting with our hosts on past and future relations between the Catholic and Jewish communities of the Bay Area.
