Jewish leaders who praised the way John Paul reached out to them during his papacy have joined with a Jesuit university for a historical tribute of his life.
"A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II & the Jewish People" includes hundreds of photos, murals, videos and artifacts starting with the childhood in Poland of Karol Wojtyla, who extended papal recognition to Israel and prayed for reconciliation at the Wailing Wall.
Sponsors hope it will tour Roman Catholic and Jewish universities and other venues in the United States before heading to Europe, and later becoming a permanent display in Israel.
