Rabbi has found happiness in Methodist Church By EDITH M. LEDERER SAN FRANCISCO (AP) How can a singing, swinging, 72-year-old peacenlck rabbi find happiness and fulfilment as "rabbi In residence" at a Meth- odist church? It's easy, says Rabbi Abra- ham L. Feinberg, as long as the church is unconventional, doesn't mention the word Christ in its liturgy and is concerned with theology. And that, he said, is the phi- losophy behind San Francisco's Glide Memorial Methodist Church which offers its worship- pers a sometimes ear-splitting combination of live jazz music, light shows, singing and rock CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 1203 AVE.

Four months ago Glide's pas- tor, Rev. Cecil Williams, as- sisted by actor Sammy Davis Jr., installed Feinberg as the church's first "rabbi in resi- dence." Feinberg is rabbi emer- itus of Holy Blossom Temple In Toronto. Williams, 40, a handsome black whose flock of hippies, homosexuals, social and reli- gious dropouts overflows Glide's aisles every week, called the rabbi's appointment a "giant step forward into the ecumeni- cal movement." COUNSELS OLD, YOUNG In his non-salaries post, Rabbi Feinberg has delivered several sermons, which at Glide are called "revolutionary mes- and has concentrated on counselling old and young Jews who come to the church. The white-haired rabbi, who has failing eyesight, says: "My work at Glide is in the basic tradition of the Hebrew prophets, mainly justice to the oppressed, to the underprivi- leged, to the downtrodden, to the marginal people. "Glide is not Christianity. It's practical Christianity. It's prac- tical Judaism, too, hut it is not either Christian or Jewish in the doctrinal sense." After 28 years In as rabbi of Holy Blossom Tem- ple, the leading reform congre- gation in the death of his wife, Feinberg decided to come here. Of all professions and occu- pations, the preacher's kids seem to be the most discussed, and the most constantly observ- ed in our society. Yet no scientific material has been produced to support the claims that children of clergy- men arc more wild, or religi- ous, or industrious or success- ;ul than the children down the street. There were some statis- tical studies in "Who's Who" that appeared to indicate a high performance pattern, high achievement cycle that belong- ed to the youngsters of the lanse. But usually, we lived for the comments and clues of neigh- bors, church members, biogra- phers to tell us about the track record of preacher's kids. However, a national study has just been completed, the lirst of its kind touching upon the life and attitudes of the children of clergymen and pub- lished in the June 28 issue o[ Christian Century. In an article, "Children of Clergymen: Do They Fit the Alan Bayer, Laura Kent and Jeffrey E. Dutton have produced a sig- nificant document which an- swers the question they and others have pondered. In 1969, entering fresh- men at 390 institutions of higher education filled out a question- naire. In this group, some children of clergymen were id- entified and the comparat i v e studies of their hobbles, habits, life style and religious loyalties were most revealing. The- national study disclosed that youngsters from the manse do have high motivation in re- gard to scholastic achievement and academic accomplishment. In their graduating class, the young people from pastor's homes were in the top quarter of their class, some 55 per cent of them compared to 44 per cent from other fammlies. More than 47 per cent of the minis- ter's children had tutored oth- ers during high school com- pared to 41 per cent of their contemporaries. In the grant and scholarship field, minister's children got 37 per cent of their grouping on the receiving to only 16 per cent from others' homes. (This is not a fair com- parison, since many of the young people from ciergy homes qualify for low income grants, a favored group in the eyes of some college funds.) The most dramatic compari- son of ministers' children com- pared to other young people in the population is in the field of music. More than 48 per cent from clergy homes musical instruments. college played Compare (his to 37 per cent of other freshmen and 4.1 per cent of other womon. Music is big in the church and important in the life of clergy families. A large number of stage, televi- sion and other show business personalities got their start in the church choir ac 1 the piano in the parsonage. Contrary to some opinion, the survey revealed that children of clergymen did not express disdain or scorn of the reli- gious life. The opposite is true, in their church attendance and In their pursuit of religious con- cerns. While 28 per cent of the entering class of freshmen said they discussed religion "fre- a massive 51 per cent of clergy kids indicated their participation. On the drinking question, 56 per cent of the freshmen class said it drank beer occasionally 31 per cent of the ministers' youth was hitting the same boltle. Perhaps it Is no accident that George McGovem is active in politics, for other ministers' children show a high interest in government and politics- much higher than their class- mates. In the concept of ser- vice and motivation toward hu- manity, the young people from the manse rate high. Minister shortage faces UC TORONTO (CP) An execu- tive of the United Church of Canada says that the church is facing a serious shortage of ministers but the quality of those seeking ordination is higher than ever before. Rev. Ernest E- Long, secre- tary to the church's general council, said in an interview that many of those entering the church come from successful careers as engineers, teachers and doctors, bringing maturity and experience to their new' role. He said that by 1974 the church will be short 175 men in spite of merging of some con- gregations. There were 44 or- dained to the ministry this year compared with 118 in 3555, the year Mr. Long became council secretary.
