Pen pal club Quot Congress Well within rights in refusing Kahane platform Harry Golden tells Why Wexler Rothberg wrong editor Post and opinion i see where or. William Wexler and my Friend or. Rothberg have suddenly become Republican or. If anyone in his right mind believes that president Mcgovern would abandon Israel he is crazy with the heat. In the first place Israel is fighting americans Battle in the Middle East and it is strictly in americans interest to continue to support Israel and Mcgovern is an american Patriot. It is hardly a coincidence that the jews have been democrats for two generations. The reason for this is that the republicans have fought every bit of social legislation introduced by the democrats from Federal Reserve to Tva to social Security to minimum wage to the eight hour Day to medicare and the Many other bits of legislation. What is the interest of the jews in these social reforms the jews would like to see an expansion of the social reforms of the 20th Century perhaps even an Fec and a Guaran teed annual wage which Only can come from the democrats. Because when the gentiles Are in trouble the jews catch hell and the idea since Roosevelt has been to keep the gentiles out of trouble with Tvan a and the strengthening of the labor unions. There must be no halt in the March of social legislation. The social legislation of Roosevelt Truman Kennedy and Johnson. This is the greatest Security for the safety and Well being of the jews of America. Harry Golden Box 2505 Charlotte . 28201 fruit destroyer Tel Aviv a a glut of fruit produced by a bumper crop has not caused prices to decline or even aided the Farmer the fruit production and marketing Board pointed out. The 5000-ton surplus was mostly destroyed to buoy prices. Israelis Are the largest fruit Consumers in the world. R torah and Flora amp portion of the week Elev deut. 7.12-11.25. The verse discussed is 11.15. By . Rabinowitz the portion of this week contains one of the Best known pass a g e s of the Bible since it is part of the obligatory portion of the daily prayers binding up o n every observant jew. I re Rabinowitz Fer of course to deut. 11. 13-31, which is the second of the three paragraphs of the shema which is read both during the morning and the evening service. That passage describes the blessings which will accrue to the jew if he a hearkens diligently to the commandments of the lord thy god a and since the Bible envisages the jewish people living in their land As a purely pastoral and agricultural Community these blessings Are that a i will give the rain of your land in its due season the former rain and the latter rain and be shall gather your Corn your wine and your this is one of the Many passages in the Bible which speak of the Bounty of the land and which displays one curiosity which is often overlooked. It appears to envisage a purely vegetarian diet there is no mention in this or in most of the other passages of a meat diet. Whether it is the a seven products which Are the glory of the land of Israel Juicy steaks also mentioned in the same portion 8.8 or whether it is a each Man sitting under his Fig and his wine a it is always the produce of the soil and of the Trees. The next verse however does mention animals a and i shall give grass in thy Fields to thine cattle and thou Shalt eat and be the rabbis deduce a Beautiful lesson from that verse that when one has animals one should never sit Down to eat before seeing that they Are fed since the order of the verse is first grass for the animals and then Only a thou Shalt but i was travelling through Hebron with my dear Friend the late prof Cecil Roth and i commented on this fact. And Roth had a rare sense of humor and he said to me a Louis i know of course that Beautiful moral and ethical comment of the rabbis and you must admit that it is after All Only a Beautiful homily which does not necessarily convey the literal meaning of that verse. Done to you think it just Means that in addition to the a scorn the wine and the Oil the Bible promises us that our cattle grazing on the most luscious grass will produce first Quality prime beef and we shall enjoy a Nice Juicy Steak a there was a twinkle in his eyes As he said it but the More i consider that verse the More i think he is right and we turn from vegetarians to carnivores or. .

Rabbi Feinberg lauded for serving in Church editor Post and opinion rabbi Abraham Feinberg served Many years in a distinguished capacity As rabbi at the holy Blossom Temple in Toronto Canada. Since the unfortunate passing of his wife he has moved to the san Francisco Bay area. The loss of his enlightened presence in their Community is our gain. While he be Reform and i orthodox i Admire and respect his courage and forthrightness to Champion the jewish issues As he sees them. His joining the staff at Glide memorial Church is an attempt on his part to reach out to All of the alienated jews Young and old who Are a turned off to the hypocrisy of the american jewish Community. They have not forsaken being jewish. However they do not find within the jewish Community an articulation of their existential concerns. Glide is attempting to be relevant and to meet the needs of the alienated Community. Rabbi Feinberg is to be saluted for this heroic stance in reaching out to them. Rabbi Paul s. Laderman by Nai by Rith Hillel foundation at the University of California 2736 Bancroft Way Berkeley Calif. 94704 no jewish Content for our grandparents editor Post and opinion its Good to see Mike Tabor a column in the recent Issue. We do need to be reminded that even though our grandparents never sat at $50.00 a plate dinners they knew a few things about living. As we rack our brains for something called a jewish Content a we would do Well to recall the Day by Day vitality of their jewish lives. A is Toby Brooks 2832 g. Cedarwood or. Ottawa Ontario editor Post and opinion i have been fuming Over the display of nonsense and naivete in an article in the May 26 Issue of the Post and opinion. Yossi Klein wrote about Kahane and the american jewish Congress. Or. Klein committed egregious errors of Law logic and morality in lambasting the action of the Congress barring Kahane from the convention Cleveland platform. Since when is it a violation of Freedom of speech to deny anyone the right to use a private podium of an individual or organization did Klein Ever study the sacred and hallowed tradition of the common Law vis a vis the inviolability of Many a Castle i am not duty bound to open Rpy Home or Hall to any person for any reason Good or evil unless i am constrained to do so by due process of Law. The american jewish Congress had every right to select those personages who were going to Grace their speaking dais and to turn away anyone whom they deemed undesirable or mischievous. I am not concerned with the Wisdom of the Congress officialdom in preventing Kahane from espousing his generally not All noxious ideas from their stage. Morris Abram in the by times of june 2 exposed the weakness and hollowness of the Kahane lamentations about the perils supposedly confronting american i also do not hold any Brief for the Congress since their vicious anti Vietnam position in my judgment is injuring the Basic interests of the state of Israel. Kahane made this concept Clear in an article in the May 26 Issue of the jewish press when commenting on the Allon speech at the convention. Klein is a rash Young Man with generally Bright views on non constitutional matters such As the plight of soviet jewry. But he is highly ignorant of the boundaries and frontiers of the american Bill of rights especially the clause enunciating Freedom of speech. Samuel Abrahams 2785 w. 5 st. Brooklyn . 11224 statement by rabbis is not religious editor Post and opinion the jewish Post and opinion published a statement on intermarriage written by rabbi Friedman rabbi Schechter and rabbi wine. The rabbis state that they do not accept the traditional value system and that the ban on intermarriage is irrational and immoral. The rabbis Are undoubtedly sincere men but i am convinced that this is not a religious statement. The rabbis do not express any concern about god and his will nothing about the torah and the jewish tradition which bind our conscience. It lacks the essential elements of a religious statement since it has no awareness of what we Are from a jewish Point of View. It lacks any Faith in gods commandments and shows Only a highly individualistic attitude without any religious discipline and moral standards. There is no certainty concerning religious obligations and it does not say what we ought to be As jewish men and women and what we have to do. The rabbis also state that they Are pleased to officiate at intermarriage in order to affirm the Freedom and dignity of All people who require their ceremonies at intermarriage. No rabbi is needed for such a purpose. A civil ceremony with a judge As officiating person will be much better for the affirmation of such Freedom and dignity. The jewish religion is not immoral with its ban on intermarriage because the ban is based on truth. A jewish marriage ceremony is based on religion on the principle of service and duty. It is meant for two people who love each other and who take upon themselves the commitment to establish a jewish Home and to bring up jewish children. That requires that both partners Are jewish or that the non jewish partner accepts the jewish Faith. Intermarriage is an agonizing problem because the happiness of two human beings is involved however True happiness comes As a by product in life resulting from fulfilment of duty and from obedience to the will of god. The traditional principle is still the Only moral principle in this Case a marriage ceremony is Only jewish if it is performed a according to the Law of Moses and of Israel.�?�. .
