As the negotiations to finalize full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Holy See move forward, we traveled to Israel to meet with high Israeli ranking officials in order to further move the process and to eliminate potential problems. We are not involved in any direct negotiations but have a unique place where we can bridge the interests of both sides. PTWF will address any situation, which represents an obstacle that we may be able to resolve. While many others listen to the "nay sayers" at the very least PTWF WILL TRY TO RESOLVE THE DIFFERENCES and overcome the obstacles between the faiths.
