Western priests told 'accept patience' EDMONTON (CP) The Western Conference of Priests must accept the "stern law of patience" in seeking changes in the Roman Catholic Church, president Rev Edward F Kennedy of Edmonton told the group's seventh annual meeting this week Issues raised by the conference since it was formed six years ago had met with good results, Father Kennedy said "One of the big issues (six years ago) was clerical dress. being required to always wear black suits and clerical collars in public." "I think that one's been he told more than 200 priests attending the meeting, many of whom were dressed in business suits, slacks and jackets, blazers and turtleneck sweaters and striped cardigans. Father Kennedy, director of Edmonton's Catholic Information Centre, said laicization dispensation from a priest's vows and a return to lay status was a frequent topic during the conference's early years. "Since then the Vatican has brought in new measures making it easier for those who make this change in their lives." Resolutions asking that priests who left the ministry be permitted to remain active in the work of the church had resulted in former priests Visitor There is a wee touch of Irish in Lethbridge Church of the Nazarene pulpit this week.

Church writers stay at home South Africa tour said 'inopportune9 TORONTO edi- tors of two church publications have been told by the South African government that it would be "inopportune" for them to visit the country, Dr. A. C. Forrest, editor of the United Church Observer, said this week. Or. Forrest said he, DeCourcey Rayner of the Presbyterian Record and other churchmen he was unable to identify were in- vited to visit South Africa in March by two Dutch Reform churches to view racial condi- tions. The editor told the United Church's general council Wednesday that no reason was given for the refusal, but said today in an interview that he does not think it is because of his or the 'church's con- demnation of South Africa's racial policy. "So I will not be he said. Mr. Rayner said he will not be going, but knew of three others who will. Dr. Forrest said the Dutch Reform church "pretty well" supports the government's ra- cial policies and invited him and the others to meet with the church's black leaders and view conditions firsthand. His comments were made during a debate in which he successfully defended the right of Observer staff members to visit South Africa or any other country "so the true positions of both sides can be determined."

WOMEN SERVE Recommendations that women be given increased opportunities to serve in the church had borne fruit and women now were taking part in many specialized ministries Resolutions recommending the election of bishops and making celibacy optional for priests still hadn't met with success, Father Kennedy said, but "the last thing we should do is give up trying." Rev. Eugene Cooney, former director of the Calgary religious education centre said priests are sometimes content "to retreat behind theological words and stereotyped formulas" instead of asking themselves "what am I making of my life, what am I Father Cooney, paster of St. Mark's parish in Calgary, said priests can help shape the future but "we have to choose to be responsible ministers."

February 24 Gut issue divides Judaism Jewish identity debate revived By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) That searing, old question. "Who is a is crackling again in Israel and among the world's adherents of Judaism. The problem threatens the stability of Israel's government at a time of critical peare negotiations and it also riles the relationships and divides the voice of Jews in America. "It's a gut said Rabbi Louis Bernstein, president of the Rabbinical Council of America, representing about Orthodox rabbis, in challenging the views of the Reform and Conservative wings of Judaism. "On all else there can be compromise and accommodation, but on this issue there can be no he said. "In this, the Orthodox cannot retreat." However, Reform and Conservative branches, representing a total of 2.200 American and Canadian rabbis, said the Orthodox insistence on a single, unilateral position endangers Jewish unity and is counter to its tradition of variety. "The real issue is the Jewish principle of said Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, executive secretary of the Rabbinical Assembly, the Con- servative clergy organization "In Judaism, there is no hi- erarchical monopoly, but rather a recognition of the authority of the rabbi accepted in each community. It is un- precedented in Judaism to seek any monolithic domination." SEEK TIGHTER LAWS He cited the olden Jewish concept of a rabbi as "mara 'd "master of the community" he leads. What aroused the controversy was the current demand by Israel's National Religious party to expand re- quirements for designating an immigrant a "Jew" eligible for full citizenship under Israel's law of return. The present law defines a Jew as a "person who is born of a Jewish mother or who has converted." The Orthodox party wants to specify further that the conversion be according lo ritual code of ancient Jewish scripture. In effect, this would limit recognition only to conversions under Orthodox auspices and "cast aspersions on the legitimacy" of conversions under non- Orthodox rabbis, the Reform and Con- servative groups say. They add this would be an "affront" to most of the world's Jews, who are non-Orthodox, and would "endanger Jewish unity at a time when that uniiy is needed more than ever." The issue took on sharpened forus as a result of Israel's recent elections which gave the National Religious party pivotal bargaining power in efforts to form a coalition parliamentary majority. Rabbi Kelman said "whet is at stake here is the right of return" for converts outside Israel, since most conversions take place under supervision of Reform or Conservative rabbis. LAWS SPECIFIC The ancient halacha provides that converts be circumcised, accept all ritual laws of the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) and undergo a a ritual immersion or form of Jewish baptism. Rabbi Kelman said conversions under Conservative auspices adhere substantially to the ancient ritual codes, and so do those in some Reform communities, while others vary. Most Reform and Conservative rabbis also require courses of instruction of six months or longer. "The real anomaly is that it's not a question of what is done but who does Rabbi Kelman said, noting that Or- thodox only officially authorized rabbinate in not recognize the authority of non- Orthodox rabbis. "We aren't arguing about the rights of Israel's rabbis in Israel, but we also have he said. On the other hand. Orthodox Rabbi Bernstein insisted Judaism must "operate in a framework of law" to preserve its unity. He said Orthodoxy recognizes conversions in other branches if found proper by Orthodox standards, but added: "H is they who have broken the ancient Jewish tradition with wide deviations from Jewish religious law." a a THE HCUCMI CHURCH OF CHUM REVEREND L FRANK LEE. 8-A.
