Matching Yarmulkes

The one moment of the Pope's trip I haven't even mentioned yet is his historic visit to the Park East Synagogue, where he delivered a short message for Passover. Thorough coverage here. Rabbi Schneier, a Holocaust survivor, told the Pope he had an angelic face! Video here --there's a very cool "Alleluia" sung by the choir, and you can catch what the Pope says when presented with the gift of a silver seder plate, and later the Hagaddah & a box of matzoh. Nothing earth-shattering, but it's spontaneous and therefore of interest.

(Powerline notes --puckishly?--that Benedict went to a synagogue while Jimmy Carter went to Hamas.) Happy Passover!
