Israel Goldstein who has headed Many of the worlds most important jewish organizations has remained steadfast to one for thirty five years. It is neither the largest nor the most significant but it has an unsophisticated innately jewish Quality that tugs it the Heartstrings and binds ene closely to the ancient patterns of jewish life.

It has settled during its existence More than 50,000 cases that run the Gamut from family crises where children want to marry out of the Faith to litigation involving declining synagogues burial societies benevolent organizations Etc. It answers the question a where shall i turn a for thousands of the perplexed. An observer at a court session is stunned by the emotional turmoil that rages around the lives of so Many Quot Little As you hear the contending parties you cannot avoid making your own judgment and you wonder if the three judges listening so sympathetically to both sides will arrive at a similar decision. Who Are these judges who talk to the litigants informally often in yiddish who persuade and cajole who mete out Justice with compassion and understanding in the spirit of Beth Din the rabbinical court of old there Are three at each of the court hearings a a rabbi a business Man and a Jurist or lawyer. Their decision is made jointly after consultation among them. Many prominent Community leaders find the experience rewarding and mrs. Ruth Richman widow of the founder and the executive Secretary has a Long list of volunteers to draw upon. The judges in the past have included the late Rebekah Kohut the late Justice Max Steuer and Domestic relations judge Jacob Panken now retired who was one of the founders. Recently mrs.

Litigants in these disputes come before the tribunal snarling at each other because of their Sharp disagreement. Yet they accept the authoritative decision of the court gracefully and leave As friends. Mrs. Richman estimates that 25 per cent of the current cases that come into the boards Headquarters at 225 Broadway Are in this category. And what of the future of the jewish conciliation Board in View of the shifting jewish population and its changing mores or. Goldstein in his address at the anniversary Celebration summed it up this Way a the East Side of today is not the East Side of 45 years ago. Many of the immigrant generation have died out. Their children Are assimilated into the american environment. And yet the jewish conciliation Board continues to fill a need not Only the civic need since litigation in our state and City courts is still clogged with delays and fraught with expense but the human need for a listening ear acid an understanding heart a and most of All a a the jewish need. Quot yiddish is still spoken but i finishing by but the filling of the jewish need is not Only a matter of language. It is mostly a matter of understanding the a mores of jewish living the patterns of jewish organizations and congregations the Gap Between the jew. Ish generations which often leads to tensions and of being Able to Appeal in the name of jewish Honor and jewish tradition.
