Faith and the environment will be the theme of the ninth meeting of the Commission for Dialogue between Jews and Catholics due to be held in Rome from 17 - 20 January.

Entitled: 'Catholic and Jewish teaching on creation and the environment', and  'The challenges of human intervention in natural order', the event will be attended by a delegation from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and one from the Holy See Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, according to a communique made public today.

On Sunday 17 January, both delegations will be present for Benedict XVI's visit to the synagogue of Rome. On Monday 18 January, Fr Patrick Desbois, president of the Yahad-in Unum organisation, will deliver a lecture on the Holocaust at Rome's Pontifical Gregorian University.

The delegation of the Chief Rabbinate will be headed by Shear Yashuv Cohen, Chief Rabbi of Haifa, while the Holy See delegation is to be led by Cardinal Jorge Mejia, archivist and librarian emeritus of Holy Roman Church.
