  Rabbi Abraham Skorka, rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a leader in the country's Jewish community, is pictured in March. Rabbi Skorka said soccer formed the initial bridge between he and Pope Francis, but their bond went beyond sport and helped to bring Christians and Jews closer together after a period of less-than-cordial relations in Argentina.
