Cardinal Bevilacqua last addressed a Jewish congregation on May 18, 2000 when he spoke on the topic of Reconciliation to Congregation Adath Jeshurun, also in Elkins Park. The Cardinal spoke at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel once before, on February 22, 1991. This will be Cardinal Bevilacqua's 17th visit/address to a synagogue since he became Archbishop of Philadelphia in 1988. All are welcome to attend the Shabbat Service at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel.

Editor's Note: Media are welcome but are asked to be mindful that the Cardinal's address will be made during a religious service. It is requested that movement be kept to a minimum.
