A new dustup has hit IJCIC, the Jewish coalition group that claims to represent the world Jewish community to the Vatican. One key member, the Anti-Defamation League, has quit, even as the umbrella group officially known as the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations tries to resurrect itself in the face of sharp criticism and years of ineffectiveness. ADL interfaith director Rabbi Leon Klenicki said the IJCIC is no longer relevant. Last March, the group was declared dead by the Vatican’s chief interfaith official.
