While war with the Arabs has served to cement tho coali- tion, religion the basis for Israel's creation now threat- ens to fopplo tlio leadership. Tho problem is not new. In Report criticizes churches for discrimination in S.A. JOHANNESBURG (Reutcr) An independent report on churches in South Africa lias criticized them for discriminat- ing against white at the same time acknowledging thai apartheid makes their work difficult. The report, by the Church Commission ot the Study Proj- ect on Chrislir.nity in Apartheid Society, took tlircc ycara lo prepare, and is likely In cause wiscspread controversy when mado available- to the public. It criticizes petty apartheid which it says operates in some churches, citing as an example the policy of whites sitting nt tile front of the church so they can take communion first. It also claims whites maintain power "by packing the impor- tant committees and commis- sion, of their churches with, and by keeping the highest posts in tho hierarchy for, membci's of [heir own race."

Guntlier Plaut, senior rabhi of Holy Blos- som Temple in Toronto, about 100 reform Jewish rabbis have begun lo lay the foundation for specific standards for persona living. Reform Judaism, the ,most liberal of the Judaic branches, has generally allowed each rabbi to formulate bis particu- lar set of ethics, within a hu- manistic framework. The lack of defined eels of standards in such areas as mar- riage ceremonies, conversions, divorces and sabbath observ- ances had led increasing num- bers of young people to leave reform Judaism. Young people wero leaving the synogoguo either because they have been "assimilated or because they want a more in tensive Jewish said one rabbi. Dr. Tlaut would set standards for marriage, divorce and con- versions and would also set up a regional set of religious courts which hnvc not existed in the reform movement in genera- tions, he said.

It also says ihc practice of placing a few blacks in important posLs, is also prac- tised by some churches. But, the report acids, many whiles arc recognizing their 'colonialist" tendencies, and things are changing. ft says apartheid seriously restricts the church, and cites deportations, refusals of visas and withdrawal of passports as examples. Among the report's roco modulations are: acts of resistance by Christians against what Is false and unjust" in the church, by churches to al- low themselves to be described as white, African or colored In legal documents. re-examination of organ- izations with whom churches have business dealings, support for con scienlious objectors. tax on church members to support African education. Signatories to the report, who include a number of prominent churchmen, make It clear they do not agree with all of It, but add they support its ''general direct ion." sanctuary dedicated EDMONTON A new seat sanctuary was dedicatee at Edmonton's Central Gospel Tabernacle. Over people attended four services the open- ing day, anil the church's cap- acity was exceeded in Uie main dedicatory service- la the after- noon. liev. Robert W. Taitinger. former pa-stor and now genera! superintendent of the P.A.O.C. was guest speaker in the after- noon service. Rev. Charles Yatcs, superintendent of the Alberta district of tiro P.A.O.C., performed the official dedica- tion. Over was given by the congregation in the offerings that day, designated to the building fund. The new sanctuary, second only lo tho Jubilee auditorium In seating capacity in Edmon- ton, has become to the citizens of Hie city as "the Pyramid." 24 years, the Socialist have al- ways held the upper hand but mve failed to win an outright parliamentary majority. Tradi- ionally, the only suitable part- ners for a coalition have been members of the National Rell- party, dedicated to root- ng tho Jewish stale In the Bible. Socialism and the Bible don't always jibe, but the system has someliow worked, although its critics say democracy suffers. Marry non-religious 'ar the majority in iect to religious restrictions: no liuses or movies on the Sabbath no marriage except by a rabbi ;cgregatcd .swimming on some trenches and other structures. Now two heated religious is- sues have combined to push the worst crises it has known. The Independent liberals, minor partners in the coalition, have proposed a bill to allow civi marriages for Jews barred bj religious law from being wet by the rabbinate. VIOLATES AGREEMENT Tho bill defies a coalition agreement to leave tbe thorny marriage question alone, so the Lilxirals face possible, expulsion from the government. But there la widespread sup- port for civil marriage. It migh solve the plight of some 40.00C Israelis who want to marr; non-Jews, or who have alread; done rendering their clrldrcn whi can't have a rabbinical wedding for other reasons. An important segment of Mrs Meir's Socialist Labor party wants to vote for the Libera bill. Such defiance of Mrs Meir's policy would make a mockery of the coalition plat form worked out after the las election in 1969. Coupled with civil marriage which has not yet faced a vole has come an attempt by the extremist religious faction Agu dat Yisracl to tighten the "who- is-a-Jew" laws of tho Bible This bill threatened to plant ob- stacles in the path of much needed immigrants from the United States and Russia, many of whom are wedded to non Jew? or were not married bj rabbis.
