With LI man's help, Vatican to loan ancient texts to Israel

"Because of efforts from a Long Island Jewish man, the Vatican will loan the work of one of Judaism's most celebrated rabbis and sages to Israel this year in a gesture meant to improve relations between Catholics and Jews.

Jewish community leaders said they are ecstatic to have the opportunity to study the work of Moses Maimonides, and at least three other medieval manuscripts."
