Leaders of the World Jewish Congress met Sunday in Paris for the first time, reaching out to French Jews unsettled by the brutal torture and death of a young Jew near Paris early this year. French Roman Catholic and Muslim leaders joined the two-day gathering, which began late Saturday, condemning anti-Semitism and calling for dialogue among religious leaders.
