Decision now being mad jewish bodies May stand firm on school Aid new York to a the jewish Community was digging deep this week to come up with its answer to the Johnson bal on Aid to Public education. Meetings of National jewish organizations were taking Placo almost nightly As the Best brains sought to come to terms with a Radical shift of the National government on school Aid. None of the agencies Are concerned with the Bill As such. Almost universally the organized jewish Community has favored Federal Aid to Public education. What worries the jewish leadership Are those aspects which involve Aid to parochial schools. The Board of governors of the american jewish committee met tuesday night wednesday the sessions of the anti defamation league National commissions got under Way in Washington . The rabbinical Council of America held its midwinter convention the beginning of the week and the Union of orthodox jewish congregations of America met on wednesday.

The Uorca will most Likely support the Johnson Bill and the stand of the Ria will very Likely lean in that direction but May have some reservations. In the Johnson Bill there Are three places where it is Felt the constitutional guarantees seem to be ignored. Under title i the shared time question which has traditionally been opposed by All jewish groups is officially recognized. It is termed a dual enrolment Quot in order to avoid objection from jewish and other sources which is that classes from parochial schools in Masse come to classes in the Public school on such subjects As math and science. To overcome this dual enrolment Calls for individual enrolment not by classes but seems to operate in precisely tie same Way from a practical standpoint. Shared time in vocational and Home economics classes has years of practice behind it. But in Only one school in the United states is shared time presently practice in other subjects. The orthodox and one other National organization opposed the position paper of the joint advisory Council on shared time. The orthodox seems to favor shared time. A second provision of tie Bill has to do with free text books. This is opposed in the Jac paper but the orthodox seems to favor this part of the Johnson Bill also. In title Iii of the Bill the jewish groups find additional grounds for opposition. This concerns supplementary educational centers in areas of the education system requiring enrichment and where experimentation might be carried on.
