It's good the Hebrew-speaking Catholics have a good catechism.

But there's no mention of using this catechism to help bring Israeli non-Catholics into the Church.

Why this omission?

It is probably illegal or at least discouraged, so they would not want to draw attention to it in the press release.

That's a more charitable interpretation.  But how far are we willing to go to avoid something illegal or discouraged?  Salvation is at stake.

We ought to be prepared to do what is illegal or discouraged when salvation is at stake.  However, this does not mean we ought to draw attention to the fact that we are doing so.

Was their a Latin-Hebrew Missal in Israel prior to Vatican 2?
