The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith boy- cotted the meeting, and New York Rabbi Avraham Weiss and a small group of follow- ers picketed it. Before the trip began Sey- mour D. Reich resigned as head of the International Jew- ish Committee for Interreli- gious Consultation, protesting the committee's inability to agree on whether Jewish lead- ers should meet with the car- dinal• Reich said they should not meet with him until he repudiated the offensive 1989 comments. But the Jewish leaders who met with the cardinal called their hourlong session the be- ginning of a new relationship between Jews and Polish Catholics. In a statement to the group, which afterwards was made public, Cardinal Glemp said he sincerely regretted earlier statements that "caused pain to the Jewish community." He said he had learned "through dialogue" that his comments "were in many as- pects based on mistaken in- formation," and he recog- nized that they were "seen as fostering stereotypes of Jews and Judaism." At a press conference Car- dinal Glemp said he plans to leave behind the "attitudes and "negative stereotypes of the past and go forward." In a joint statement the Jewish participants called the meeting "a forthright, open and, we believe, constructive conversation." They said that in addition to acknowledging mistakes and expressing regret for them, Cardinal Glemp "ac- knowledged the need to en- L.

Cardinal Glemp began his series of visits to Polish- American communities Sept. 21 in the Diocese of Brook- lyn, N.Y., with a Mass at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neigh- borhood• Hundreds of members of St. Stanislaus and neighbor- ing parishes packed the church. Those who could not get in waited outside and greeted his arrival with thun- derous applause. In his homily, delivered in Polish, the cardinal stressed that Poland's new freedom must have a foundation in morality, said Nadia Gryziec, a member of the parish dele- gation welcoming the cardi- nal. "He said that if the peo- ple can't improve the level of morality in Poland, then they can't be a good nation." Police had established tight security around the church because of previous warnings from Jewish groups that they planned to protest the cardi- nal's visit, but there were no demonstrations. Cardinal Glemp joined Pol- ish Catholics from across Connecticut for a Mass of thanksgiving Sept. 22 in Hart- ford celebrating the 100th an- niversary of the founding of the first Polish parish in Con- necticut, St. Stanislaus in Meriden. At St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York the same day Car- dinal John J. O'Connor com- mented before his homily that Cardinal Glemp was to visit New York Oct. 6-7, at the end of his U.S. visit, and to meet again with Jewish leaders there. Other scheduled stops on his tour included Boston; Al- bany, N.Y.; Pittsburgh; Cleve- land; Gary, Ind.; Chicago; Scranton, Pa.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Philadelphia; and Metuchen and Newark in New Jersey. :::i :: ?:  &  :::,. :'    . :!! • ,: . . • .,. ,  :.:. j   ':-':::'::  ':' :::::':" '!i' ::i:::%:.
