"We want to show we are very, very serious about this.” The pair jumped into the swiftly moving river through a hole chopped In the ice.

The current edition of the United Church Observer says in an editorial that the income-based segment of the clergy — encompassing 60 per cent of the church’s ministers — will have their salaries raised to $6,300 from 16,000. But it says inflation will reduce the actual pay, noting that the cost of living last year rose 8 7 per cent The new salary increase amounts to about five per cent. By MALCOLM N. CARTER NEW YORK (AP) - The minister blames the rabbi. And the rabbi blames the minister. Two congregations are in disagreement after sharing one flouse of worship for 19 years. Brotherhood? scoffs Toronto-born Rev. William Glenesk, a Presbyterian who became the church’s minister two years ago. “My people wanted to maintain the image that there was brotherhood going on,” he said recently, “but it was all a facade.” Retorts Rabbi Irving Block, the synagogue’s first and only spiritual leader: "My philosophy and his philosophy are diametrically opposed to each other ... He doesn’t believe in sharing—his only sharing is with a dollar and cent sign.” Charges of anti-Semitism, arrogance, and selfaggrandizement have swirled about Mr. Glenesk, though his supporters say he is the victim of an intransigence that came with the synagogue’s growth to about 600 members. A middle-aged former drama student who brought nudity to the church’s theatre and welcomed homosexuals to the sanctuary, Mr. Glenesk says the covenant of brotherhood drafted by his predecessor and Rabbi Block has bridled him. “The convenant is not a sacred object. It wasn’t drawn up by Moses on Mount Sinai. It was drawn by two human beings. Because the church was tied by a straitjacket which was called the convenant, I walked into a sinking ship.” That "ship” stands in a tree-lined street. Built in 1846, it is a graceful structure with two bulletin boards out front, a bell rung by hand and six Doric columns, grey and peeling. PLAQUE IS MOCKED Inside the stately Greek revival building in Greenwich, the divisiveness mocks a plaque that proclaims to the world outside the vision two congregations once had. “Together the Village Presbyterian Church and the Brotherhood Synagogue engage in community activities to foster better understanding and co-operation,” reads the plaque fastened to a wrought-iron fence. Raobi Block had a congregation of about 100 members seeking a new home in 1954. He approached Rev. Jesse Stitt about sharing quarters. Together they drafted what they called their covenant of brotherhood, jointly making decisions about use of the church facilities, the budget and maintenance through the Brotherhood Council. The synagogue began by paying one*tenth of the maintenance expenses. As it grew, it voluntarily raised its share to two-thirds of the $25,000 total, based on its size and its use of the sanctuary on both Fridays and Saturdays. So successful was this experiment in brotherhood that Block and Stitt were invited to Israel, West Germany and a number of states to talk about it. Dr Stitt rettO from his ministry a little more than two years ago and his congregation looked for a new minister Village Presbyterian had one of Off-Broadway’s oldest theatres in its basement, and Mr. Glenesk had established himself at the forefront of a movement to bring avante-garde theatre into the church The congregation invited Mr Glenesk to lead them for what has been described as a pittance. He had been pictured on the cover of Life magazine for his work at Brooklyn’s Spencer Memorial Church and had performed the marriage of Tiny Tim on network television "Why was such a man sent’” Rabbi Block demands, having appealed to the Presbytery of New York City to take note of Mr Glenesk. He was not sent, replies Rev James Watson, the presbyter, in effect the church organization's executive director. The choice was up to the congregation, Mr. Watson said in an interview, terming the brotherhood failure “a tragedy." Whatever the validity of accusations against him, most everyone agrees that the trouble began after Mr. Glenesk arrived One issue was the nature of plays performed under his auspices They contained, in some cases, profanity and nudity Rabbi Block told Mr. Glenesk- “If you know that certain plays you put cm will affect the reputation of the synagogue, you don’t do it. We’ve just said that such plays have no place within the framework of a bouse of worship,” DEMANDS INCREASE Then Mr. Glenesk said the synagogue was getting its space in the church at a steal.’’ He asked for an increase in its annual contribution a year ago. The synagogue declined. Village Presbyterian’s governing body demanded last November that the synagogue voluntarily contribute 125,000 a year. Rabbi Block was incredulous. The last straws, the rabbi said, were Mr. Glenesk’s comments in his church bulletin. In September, 1973, he referred to “the Jewish theocracy" that “persecuted" early Christians, “comparable to our situation as a minority and remnant in New York City.” Just after the Yom Klppur war in the Mideast, Mr, Glenesk wrote in the bulletin to “our friends, Arab, nonZionist Jews and all who are offended by the arrogant, self- righteous sign posted outside our sanctuary by the synagogue re “victory for Israel. Each was taken by the syna-le to be anti-Semitic, le accused the rabbi of trying to take over that house, influence the church elders, censor bis productions and control his preaching from the pulpit. “'what be wants to do,” Rabbi Block said, “he wants to be tbe landlord.’’ The synagogue voted last November to leave the church to the Presbytery. Presbyter Watson appointed four ministers ana three church elders to look into the matter. “We’re trying to be a party of reconciliation in this,’’ he said. But Rabbi Block says that regardless of the outcome of the presbytery’s investigation, the two faiths cannot again share the same house of worship. Mr. Glenesk believes he can keep the church open—that enough groups would like to use the space available and make “offerings” so that continued operations are feasible.
