Cohen m Grant to hebrew Academy we take Issue with rabbi Ronald Gray a satisfaction that Kosher food was provided at the recent annual meeting of the jewish welfare federation for those who requested it. This cannot possibly be considered As a great achievement. A i believe that the jewish welfare federation is to be praised for making such a the Indianapolis Jef is the Only one in an area of 250 Miles from Indianapolis which does not serve a Kosher meal to everyone at its annual meeting. We made such a Survey several years ago and As a result the Jef meeting the following year was Kosher. We did not consider that As a great achievement just because we were years behind other federations in doing what was right. Rabbi Gray has therefore undercut those of us who believe that while individual jews May do what their consciences dictate the jewish Community As such has no right to the dispensation. It represents All the jews of the Community not merely those who eat Trefe. A a great step Forward has been made and we sincerely Hope that the precedent has been established. The other jewish organizations would do Well to follow this courageous and commendable action a writes rabbi Gray. Surely the rabbi must be talking with his Tongue in Cheek. Is is possible that he is writing this out of conviction is tokenism what he believes the orthodox Community in Indianapolis wants had rabbi Gray been Here at the time the Mikvah was built with federation funds we would today have had no Mikvah. We could have used the swimming Pool at the jewish Center which is what in some communities has to be done. We would suggest that rabbi Gray walk Over to the jewish Community Center on the Sabbath and anything he cares to say we will be Happy to publish. As rabbi he must be concerned with Observance of the Sabbath in a Community facility. It Well could be that he will want to a a Salute the federation again who knows. For those who might be interested we did not raise the Issue at the annual meeting of the federation of the refusal of the federations director Frank Newman to answer a civil letter from us. We did not feel that the matter was of sufficient weight. But for those who run the federation let us reveal to them something they did not know a and that is that during the Sabbath service there is provision for anyone who feels aggrieved to Rise to the pulpit and state his Case. This is traditional and while the federation annual meeting is not a prayer service it is attended by Many probably most who Haven to set foot in a Temple or synagogue since the last High holidays and their loyalty to the federation is in essence their Way of showing their jewishness which incidentally is something we approve of entirely.
