Rosh Hashanah Message From Martin E. Citrin,
President, Council of Jewish Federations
The High Holy Days come at a
time of change for the three great
democracies to which we are
closely tied.
Here in the United States we
are in the midst of the profound
self-examination that marks a
presidential election. In Canada
one era of political history
recently ended and another
began. And we have watched
with pride as Israel
surrounded by countries of
tyranny and autocracy
conducted an election process as
free and democratic as any in the
Change is all around us, but
the High Holy Days recall us to
the unchanging, the timeless, the
eternal: the call to justice,
compassion, personal and collec-
tive accountability that are the
foundation of our Jewish
heritage. In this New Year we are
confronted by continuing
challenges: the needs of the new
Jewish poor in our communities;
escalating hardship for the Jews
in the Soviet Union; turmoil for
the Jews of Ethiopia; rising
economic pressures that erode
the quality of life for our Israeli
brothers and sisters.
We are a people unique in our
capacity to adapt to change while
maintaining our commitment to
the eternal. In 5745 we will once
again commit ourselves to
fostering a better life for our
people and for all people.
Law ProfDrinan
Says Separation Erosion Dangerous
(JTA) There has been an
"erosion" of support in the
Jewish community for the
constitutional separation of
church and state which is
"not in the interests" of
American Jews, Louis
Henkin, university profes-
sor of law and diplomacy at
Columbia University,
charged here.
But Edward Zelinsky, as asso-
ciate professor at Yeshiva
University's Cardozo Law
School, said that the last 30 years
has demonstrated that the
separation of church and state is
not enough to protect Jewish
rights and may even hinder them.
Father Robert Drinan, a profes-
sor at Georgetown University's
Law Center, in a discussion on
"Is the separation between
church and state in the United
States an obsolete concept?" as
part of the biennial convention of
B'nai B'rith International at the
Sheraton Washington Hotel.
Henkin said that the erosion of
support in the Jewish community
was caused by Jews considering
themselves as part of a "trinity of
religion" along with Protestants
and Catholics. He said as a coali-
tion, Jews were part of the
majority and didn't need protec-
tion. But as Christian groups
began to assert their beliefs more
openly, "Jews now find that they
need the separation of church and
state guarantee to protect their
rights," Henkin asserted.
He said that the Supreme
Court decision last March per-
mitting a creche in a town square
in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, may
be the turning point on this issue.
Henkin added that the consti-
tutional guarantee does not only
protect Jews and other minority
religious groups but also non-be-
the separation of church and
state was not adequate protec-
tion any longer since, as the state
provides more services it may
result in not protecting Jews and
other minorities but in discrimi-
nation against them. As an
example, he noted that a Connec-
ticut court ruled unconatitu-
tional, on separation of church-
state grounds, a state law which
allowed a Christian Sabbath
observer to refuse to work on

before the some 1,000 persons
attending the convention. It has
received heightened interest
because of President Reagan's
speech at a prayer breakfast
during the Republican national
convention in which he said reli-
gion and politics were linked.
A discussion on religion and
politics was held at the conven-
tion, and both President Reagan
and Vice President Walter Mon-
dale who addressed B'nai B'rith
also dealt with the subject.
DRINAN, a former Demo-
cratic Congressman from Massa-
chusetts and former president of
Americana for Democratic
Action, strongly condemned
Reagan for seeking to form a
coalition of some 51 mil ion
Catholics and 10 to 15 million
evangelicals in the U.S. by
promising them the adoption of a
tuition tax credit if he is
reelected. Drinan also rejected
Reagan's contention at the
prayer breakfast that the U.S.
had become a secular society
opposed to religion. He said that
over the last decades courts have
upheld many benefits and
exemptions for religious groups.
The Jesuit priest also said that
he rejects Reagan's other conten-
tion that those who oppose the
school prayer amendment are
"intolerant of religion."
"The Administration believes
that if you don't agree with the
fundamentalists that we ought to
have tuition tax credits and recri-
minalize abortion and reinstate

Yom Kippur service will be held
at the Frankfurt Book Fair in
West Germany, beginning with
Kol Nidre prayers on the eve on
Yom Kippur, Friday, Oct. 5, and
continuing throughout Saturday,
Oct. 6.
This decision was taken, with
the cooperation of book fair of-
ficials, but largely through the
initiative of American book
publishers and the JWB Jewiah
Book Council in cooperation
with the JWB Commission on
Jewish Chaplaincy, after many
American publishers and editors
expressed outrage when they
learned that the Frankfurt Book
Fair coincided with Yom Kippur.
The fair, the world's largest, will
take place Oct. 3-8.
Fair officials apologized for
what they maintained was an
oversight, but said they could not
take place."
The JWB is shipping to
Frankfurt more than 400 copies
of the High Holy Day prayer
book it published for American
Jewish military personnel. Zebra
Books, a New York publisher of
mass-market books, said it was
inviting 500 fair participants to a

Hotel Intercontinental beginning
after sundown Oct. 6.
reschedule the fair this year.
Ronald Weber, of the fair's press
and information department,
sent a letter to Publishers
Weekly late last year expressing
regret at the scheduling.
He said that fair officials, to
avoid a repetition of this year's
fiasco, had checked the dates of
Yom Kippur through 1990 "and
have settled with the fair
management the dates on which

In My Opinion
Politics and Religion
The Jewish community had
best keep a watchful eye on the
debate of Church and Slate cur-
rently escalating in the volatile
atmosphere of election campaign
rhetoric. There are not-so-hidden
agendas lurking which represent
the gravest threat to Jewish
security in the United States we
have encountered in some time.
The issue is not whether poli-
tics and religion are inseparable,
as President Reagan suggested
to an audience of 10.000 gathered
for an "ecumenical prayer break-
fast" during the Republican
National Convention. All reli-
gions project a vision of an ideal
society: politics is a primary
vehicle for translating ideals into
enforceable laws. As Rabbi
Stephen S. Wise put it decades
ago. "If religion has nothing to
do with politics, politics has
nothing to do with morality."
Nor is the issue defending the
Constitution against those who
would deny American citizens
their First Amendment rights to
free exercise for religion, which
was the great canard of the recent
school prayer controversy.
Students are free to pray as they
wish, recite grace before and after
meals, and read their Bibles so
long as they do not disrupt the
normal class room routine.
What the Supreme Court
rejected is the State's arrogating
to itself the nght to organize
worship by scheduling it as part
r :.~.e school day This, the Court
determined, would be "an
establishment of religion.' even
when students are allowed to
decline participation.
The President, himself, has
contributed to this confusion by
repeatedlv misstating the facts.
He has championed "the right of
children once again to pray eoV
untarily in our public schools,
and has decried Government
telling children they cannot ask
a blessing before lunch in the
school cafeteria"
Norman Lear, the famous tele-
vision writer and producer ("All
jb the Family"', and an old
Hollywood friend of Mr.
Reagan s. challenged the
President to cite one instance m
which children were denied the
right to say Grace in a school
cafeteria The President s reply
was reveaiingiy vague: "Without

youths and an adult, were
arrested and charged with com-

incidents against a synagogue in
Seminole. One juvenile was
charged under the House of Wor-

piece of legislation which dictates
that desecration of a religious
institution is a felony rather 'han
a misdemeanor The ADL worked
with the prosecuting attorney,
and. despite a defense challenge
claiming that the House of

is unconstitutional, the youth
was sentenced to 12 to 1? months
in a juvenile detention facility. In
addition, the judge will retain
jurisdiction in the case and will
consider incorporating a

Governor Graham to Speak
AtMenorah Manor
Xen years ago Mrs. Hertzberg
(fictitious name), and her
husband left their home, their
family and friends in Ohio and
moved to Pinellas County. Their
dream of retirement, pleasant
weather and welcoming beaches
had come true. But, sadly, the
i realization of that dream came to
i an abrupt and bitter end the
following year with the sudden
[death of the husband.
Today, Mrs. Hertzberg lives
alone. Frightened, sick and in-
secure, the combination of
multiple medical problems
coupled with bouts of emotional
depression make it difficult for
this woman to leave her small
apartment. She sees her life as
empty and meaningless. Her
days drag. Her nights seem
endless. "What if I get sick
during the night?" frets Mrs.
Hertzberg. "What if I can't get
to the telephone? If I do get sick,
who will take care of me? If only,
if ."

I have worked with Secretary of
I State George Firestone to distri-
bute our code of fair campaign
practices. The code, which was
[mailed in an election packet sent
all candidates for state posi-
>ns including judgeships, calls
Ion the candidate to "condemn
lany appeal to prejudice based on
[face, creed, national origin or
Igender" among other things. A
Icopy of the code was to be signed
Iby each candidate and returned
|to the Secretary of State's office.
When a local radio station that
Isubscribes to the tapes of the
[National Press Club ran the
[complete text of Minister Louis
[Farrakhan's remarks to the press
[club in Washington, the ADL
[sent a letter to the station
manager expressing our concern.
I We said that we "recognize the
|rote of the media is a difficult one,
:h includes the balancing of
fesponsible journalism with the
pie's right to know.' We
Jso reiterated the remarks of
Nathan Pelmutter, ADL's
National Director, who said, "It
is high time for the press to break
the round of outrageous ravings
from Farrakhan and indignant
responses from Jews. It can do so
simply by refusing to serve as his
megaphone." Rather than serve
as an agent of censorship, the
ADL focused in its letter on the
station's responsibility to have
balanced Farrakhan's statements
with information about his back-
ground. We enclosed a copy of a
recent ADL research report on
Farrakhan. The League received
an immediate response from the
station manager in the form of a
letter which stated, "I can appre-
ciate your antipathy for his
remarks, as well as your under-
standing of the difficult position
we are in when a program series
that we carry offers such contro-
versial material. I understand
that the purpose of your writing
. was to provide us with in-
formation on Mr. Farrakhan
which might be helpful in future
program decisions. Thank you for
bringing this to my attention. I
will see that it is circulated to the
programming staff"

Mrs. Hertzberg, you are not
alone. Your fears are real. Your
loneliness and your insecurity are
common to many people in our
community. Although we at Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service
cannot solve all of your problems,
we can offer some help. Some of
that help comes through and
from members of Federation's
Human Relations Committee.
Did you know, Mrs. Hertzberg,
that this group of dedicated
volunteers personify the hand of
friendship in our Jewish com-
munity? Did you also know that
under the ever watchful eye of its
chairman, Dr. Joel Shrager, these
hardworking people individually
devote countless hours to service
to the community?
Each synagogue or temple has
appointed a chairman, tailoring
its program to fit its own par
ticular needs and interests. Some
provide transportation to ser-
vices, others concentrate on
regular hospital and nursing
home visits and others try to
visit people such as yourself,
Mrs. Hertzberg, who have diffi-
culty managing their lives or who
cannot get out of their homes. All
share the basic Jewish mitzvah of
extending a helping hand to
those in need even if those needs
are chronic and long lasting.
Therefore, to the following
chairmen, Al Lewis of Temple
Beth El, to K aim an Goldstein of
Congregation B'nai Israel, St.
Petersburg, to Fanny and Dave
Kaplan of Congregation Beth
Shalom, Gulf port, to Shirley and
Leonard ("oilman, Jeanne and
Jules Mai kin of Temple B'nai Is-
rael, Clear water, to Anna and
Murray K ah an a, Alice Burke
from Temple Aha vat Shalom, to
Rabbi Sherman and Barbara
Kirshner of Congregation Beth
C'hai, to Arnold and Sishia
Kollenberg, Harold Glazer, Ed
Lancut, Rudy Marder of Congre-
gation Beth Shalom and to all of
the truly dedicated committee
members go our heartfelt appre-
ciation. No request is too great or
too insignificant and no
emergency is too inconvenient for
these unselfish concerned and
sensitive volunteers. Theirs, is
not a "fun" job but what a sense
of accomplishment and grati-
fication they derive!
What would people like Mrs.
Hertzberg and Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service do without them?
Governor Bob Graham will be
joining the festivities at Menorah
Manor Founders Association
Dinner on Tueday evening, Sept.
25, Chairwomen Betty Sembler
and Sonya Miller. In his keynote
message the governor will speak
on the special problems confront-
ing the elderly today and the
necessity of each individual
accepting a portion of the respon-
sibility in assisting them in meet-
ing their needs. Governor
Graham's many years of concern
and personal involvement with
the plight of older adults has
brought needed attention and
action in the State of Florida
during his term of office.
Ted Wittner, Chairman of the
Board of Menorah Manor, stated
that this first Annual Founders
Association Dinner would offer
recognition to those individuals
whose support and dedication
have brought to reality a Jewish

Npwr in Brief

ByJTA Services
officials of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional said, after President
Reagan addressed the B'nai
B'rith convention last Thursday,
that they had not been satisfied
by the President's explanation of
his controversial views on the
relat ion of religion to the state.
Gerald Kraft. B'nai B'rith
president, said Jews were
"concerned that in the Ad-
ministration's approach, that
there is this implied, unnecessary
pressure to conform" on religious
matters. He said that "nothing'

Mondale. who spoke first
Thursday morning, largely on the
religious issue, "restated a philo-
sophy with which we agree. I
think he was clear. He was
Thursz said that the President,
by contrast, spoke in more
general philosophical terms
about the importance of
separating church and state but.
he added, "philosophy is not
going to be enough to satisfy the
Jewish community."
Begin Hospitalized After
Suffering Bad Night
Premier Menachem Begin was
admitted to the Shaarei Zekek
Hospital here, suffering from
what was described by the
hospital as an urotogical problem.
Begin, 71, was undergoing
tests and was reported as being
in satisfactory condition, feeling
comfortable and reading news-
He was admitted to the
hospital after complaining over-
night that he did not feel wefl.
Jewish Leaders
Denounce Meir Kahane
community leaders here have
denounced recently elected
Knesset Member Rabbi Meir
Kahane whose Kach Party
demands the ouster of all Arabs
from Israel. Kahane. who
recently visited the U.S.. was
also strongly repudiated by the
Chicago Board of Rabbis.
Marshall Grossman, chairman
of the Community Relations
Committee of the Jewish
Federation-Council of Greater
Los Angeles, joined with leaders
of local Jewish organizations to
condemn Kahane's "message of
racism and bigotry."
"The organized Jewish com-
munity of Los Angeles unre-
servedly condemns Meir
Kahane." Grossman said. There
can be no hesitation, no am-
biguity, no equivocation in
voicing our rejection and con-
demnation." The area leaders of

Histadrut Neutral
On Unity Gov't.
TEL AVIV The Histadrut
has taken no official position on
the establishment of a Labor-
Likud unity government, accord-
ing to Yisrael Kessar, secretary
general of the trade unions
federation. Kessar admitted,
however, to personal reservations
over Premier-designate Shimon
Peres' agreement to allow Likud
to hold the Labor portfolio in a
unity cabinet
The Histadrut Central
Committee indicated that the
composition of the national
government will have no bearing
on internal political forces at
work in Histadrut. Kessar said
that the abandonment by Maparo
of its Knesset alignment with the
Labor Party would be effective
only on the national level. Align-
ment unity is expected to be
preserved within the Histadrut
Nevertheless, with the forma-
tion of a unity government.
Likud is expected to demand a
greater say and more posts in
Histadrut bodies.
Police Arrest 16
In Neo-Nazi Crackdown
BONN Police have reported
that 16 persons were arrested last
weekend in a major crackdown on
neo-Nazis in West Berlin. Helmut
Koenigshaus. a police spokes-
man, said 60 policemen were
involved in the operation which
included searches in 11 apart-
ment houses in various parts of
the city.
Koenigshaus said the "unusual
action" had been taken to
prevent establishment of a
branch of the extremist "Action
Front National Socialists." All
Nazi organizations are banned in
West Berlin by orders of the
Allied Powers.
Michael Kuehnen is the leader
of the group, known to live in a
secret place in Paris and wanted
in West Germany for a variety of
offenses, including display and
distribution of anti-Semitic
Several dozen of Kuehnen s
supporters were in one of the
flats. Police said thev found in
that apartment and in others
various weapons and anti-Semitic
Israeli Jets Bomb
Hawatmeh's Quarters
TEL AVIV Israeli military
aircraft carried out a bombing
raid on a three-story building
outside Bhamdoun in central
Lebanon near the main Beirut-
Damascus Highway that is said
to have been the regional head-
quarters of the Democratic Front
for the Liberation of Palestine,
headed by Nayef Hawatmeh. All
Israeli planes returned safely, an
army spokesman said.
However, the Abu Mussa
group announced in Beirut that it
was the unit which had been hit
in the building and that the
officer commanding its artillery,
code named Abu Hassan, had
been killed, and three other
soliders were wounded when a
missile hit an ammunition dump.
Beirut radio said extensive
damage had been done.

4 Jewish Commons Members
Survive Conservative Landslide
TORONTO (JTA) The four Jewish members of
the Canadian House of Commons survived last week's
landslide victory of the Progressive Conservative Party in
Canada's general elections.
They are David Orlikow, of Winnipeg, a member of the
New Democratic Party; Robert Kaplan of York Center,
Toronto, Solicitor General in the outgoing Liberal
government; Herbert Gray, of Windsor, Ont., who also
held Cabinet posts in the Liberal government; and David
Berger, a Liberal of Montreal Laurier.
THERE WERE NO specifically Jewish issues in the
election which ended more than two decades of Liberal
Party government. The Canadian Jewish Congress had
informed the candidates of all parties of the issues of
Jewish concern such as Israel. Soviet Jewry. Jews in Arab
lands, anti-hate legislation and Nazi war criminals living
in Canada.
Brian Mulroney, leader of the Progressive Con-
servatives who will take office as Prime Minister on Sept.
IT, has expressed himself strongly in favor of Israel and
for tougher measures against war criminals. Associates of
Mulroney have favored strengthening anti-hate

B'nai B'rith International Convention
President Reagan and former
Vice President Walter Mondale
chose the B'nai B'rith Inter-
national Convention for their
speeches on Jewish Affairs as
B'nai B'rith celebrated their
140th Anniversary. As delegate
from the Clearwater lodge, I rep-
resented Clearwater as well as the
Tampa Bay area. Issues and
forums of major concern included
Soviet Jewry, Inter-Faith
Marriage, and Israeli Affairs, as
well as the future of the Jewish
people. At the forum on Soviet
Jewry speakers spoke as former
refuseniks. A woman from New
York told of her efforts to
distribute literature of all types
to the Soviet Jews. This
discussion inspired this delegate
to someday make a "Freedom"
trek to our brothers and sisters in
Representatives of over 40
countries participated in this
biennial convention, including
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Israel,
South Africa and Europe. Gerald
Kraft, President of B'nai B'rith
International, chaired the
proceedings which passed a
resolution to study the impact of
women as B'nai B'rith members
apart from B'nai B'rith Women.
The 1,000 delegates and their
guests were entertained by the
presentation of Hannah Senash,
an off-Broadway play about a
Congregation Bet Emet
(Humanistic Judaism)
High Holiday services information:
Danny Thomas addresses assembly.
Jewish heroine during WWII.
The local B'nai B'rith lodges will
attempt to bring this wonderful
one-actress play to this area.
Theodore Bikel, Edwin Newman,
Dr. Albert Sabin and Rabbi
Marshall Meyer were recipients
of the Dor L'Dor Award. Con-
versation among the delegates
ensued from Day One and proved
to be an outstanding part of
Convention Week. One of B'nai
B'rith's concerns is involvement
in and participation with other
community groups like Temple
and Federation and I feel the
local B'nai B'rith lodge has done
much to keep harmony among
Jews of North Pinellas County.
B'nai B'rith traditionally stands
for perpetuation of our faith,
brotherhood and Israel and this
wonderful International Conven-
tion was a fine example of why
membership is so very important.
A showing of photos and a
presentation on this convention
as well as meeting the new ADL
Executive Director will be held
on Sept. 20, 7:30 p.m. at the
Golda Meir Center. Hope to see
you then. Ladies and guests
welcome. Best wishes for a
Happy New Year.
A New Year's Greeting From
The Shofar is sounded.
It's notes short and long.
The strains of Kol Nidre,
Life's bitter-sweet song.
Recalling the past
With a smile and a tear,
Now look to the future
And a happy New Year.
Best Wishes

The Friday evening sermons of
Rabbi Jan Bresky are not the
ordinary presentations. His
words are thought provoking
ones that his congregants can
relate to and appreciate. The
growing membership at Temple
Ahavat Shalom attest to that.
Recently the rabbi held a "rap
with the rabbi," discussing Mon-
dale or Reagan? It was an ex-
citing and stimulating evening.
You are all invited to attend our
next "rap with the rabbi."
The "Blood Drive" chaired by
super-person Dave Bowman was
held at the Temple Ahavat
Shalom on Sept. 23. Dave re-
ports, "It was successful but the
requests always exceed the
supply available." It is always
better to give than receive.

L'Shana Tova Tikatevu
Starting Sept. 9, games will be
played twice a week at Temple
Ahavat Shalom in Palm Harbor.
Congregants have conducted
257 games on Sundays at the
Italian-American Club in Clear-
water over a five-year period,
with the last taking place on
Aug. 25. Since Oct. 19, 1983,
games also have been played on
Wednesdays in the temple at
1574 Curlew Road.
Co-chairmen Bill Eisenberg
and Jack Sih/erstein say the
decision to have the game held at
the new house of worship on both
Sundays and Wednesdays was
made because it's almost double
the size of the club, relatively
smoke free, cleaner and airier.
Silverstein says about 180 to
250 people play games at the
temple each time and that they
represent all religious denomi-
nations. He also says it's the
friendliest game in town. "We
cater to our clients," Silverstein
adds, "and if there is a dispute
over the call, we always rule in
favor of the patron."
Eisenberg says participants
don't go hungry during the game,
because free coffee or tea is
always available as well as
do nuts. Once a month, he adds,
there also are free bagels and
cream cheese.
Eisenberg says there were free
gifts for everyone at the grand
opening and that during the
entire month of September there
will be a random drawing of
Silverstein says the games
committee consists of 22 regulars
and about 25 "associates" who
contribute their services at each
game. Doors open on Wednes-
days at 9:30 a.m., with the first
numbers called at 11:30 and
plays continuing until 3:30 p.m.

Eban Withdraws
Former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban withdrew his candidacy for
the office of Knesset Speaker
after Labor Party support swung
to his rival, Shlomo Hillel.
Eban, who has been serving as
acting Speaker for the past three
weeks, announced that he would
seek the job permanently. He re-
versed himself, he explained,
when it became clear that he
would have to compete with
Hillel. A contest between them
would hurt Labor's chances to
win the post against the Likud
candidate, who has not yet been
Eban was originally ap-
proached by Labor Party leaders
to stand for Speaker because he
would have the support of the
Communists and the Progressive
List for Peace which are neces-
sary for a majority vote. Hillel,
who claimed he would not have
presented his own candidacy had
he known Eban would run, said
that it was too late to back out.
For a child to reach his fullest
potential depends, to a great
extent, on how much sensory and
intellectual stimulation he
receives in the first five years of
life. Parents and toddlers will
participate in planned activities
that will make learning and
development fun.

Says Separation Erosion Is Dangerou
U.S. Vetoes Anti-Israel
Resolution Before Security Council
(JTA) A Security Coun-
cil resolution calling for an
immediate Israeli with-
drawal from south Lebanon
and demanding that Israel
"immediately lift all
restrictions and obstacles"
on the civilian population
traveling in south Lebanon
was vetoed by the United
States last Thursday night.
Britain and Holland switched
positions shortly before the vote
and decided to support the
resolution, instead of abstaining,
because Lebanon dropped its
demand that the Secretary
General appoint a fact-finding
mission to investigate the situa-
tion in south Lebanon. The U.S.
veto was the sole dissenting vote
in the 16-member Security
delegate in the Council, said his
country opposed the resolution
because it was "unbalanced" and
took "a selective, myopic look at
only one part of the problem." He
referred to the fact that the
resolution ignored the continued
Syrian occupation of other parts
of Lebanon and only singled out
the south, the region under
Israel's control.
Israel's delegate, Aryeh Levin,
addressing the Council after the
vote, charged that the meeting of
the Council was a "contrived,
counterproductive and unneces-
sary exercise." Levin is the
acting Israeli UN Ambassador,
replacing Yehuda Blum who
concluded his term of office two
weeks ago.
Ambassador Rachid Fakhoury
of Lebanon expressed regret at
the U.S. veto. He said the resolu-
tion was "limited to human-
itarian aspects." In Beirut, on
Friday, Prime Minister Rashid
Karami said he had not expected
the U.S. to veto the resolution.
He denounced the U.S. for doing
so and said, "May this modern
civilization that is championed
by such cheap values be cursed."
CLARK, explaining the U.S.
veto, said "we believe it is
unreasonable, unrealistic for this
Council to address the question
of foreign forces in southern
Lebanon and the humanitarian

and security problems there
without dealing with these same
problems in all of Lebanon."
He added that "when this
Council is prepared to look at the
security and humanitarian
problems throughout Lebanon,
we will join in that effort, but we
cannot be a party to an unbal-
anced resolution which takes a
selective, myopic look at only one
part of the problem."

you are intolerant of religion,
Drinan said. "I am not intolerant
of religion because I think the
Rev. Falwell is fundamentally
wrong on three or four major
Noting that the Administra-
tion has become "defensive" on
the issue because of the criticism
Reagan has received for his
remarks since the Republican
national covention, Drinan urged
Jews and others to be "very
vigilant" during the next few
weeks until the Administration
"backtracks" on this issue.
religion were also criticized at the
B'nai B'rith convention during
the discussion on religion and
politics. Barry Rubin, a Mideast
specialist at Georgetown Univer-
sity's Center for Strategic
Studies, said that Reagan's argu-
ment that religion and politics
are "necessary related" was
"almost word for word the kind
of statements that the Ayatollah
Khomeini has made in Iran."
Rabbi David Saperstein,
Washington representative of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, warned that "we
are seeing people trying to im-
pose their religious beliefs on
America." Both Saperstein and
Eugene Fisher, head of Catholic-
Jewish relations for the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops,
said religious groups can speak
out on public issues. But Fisher
warned, "There's a tremendous
danger when any religious group
decides only its way is Gods
Drinan said that the Catholic
bishops do not want Catholics to
vote on a single issue. He said the
many Catholics in Congress who
voted against the efforts to make
abortion illegal were not violating
their religious principles.
BOTH HENKIN and Drinan
opposed the school prayer
amendment. But Henkin urged
Jews and others not to rely on the
courts to protect their rights but
to speak up when they see it vio-
lated in their own communities.
Drinan and Henkin were also
opposed to the effort to have a
moment of silence instead of
school prayer. Drinan noted that
many states have adopted the
moment of silence, and some
have allowed children to be
excused from it, which he said
demonstrates that it is a subter-
fuge for prayer.
Henkin noted that the same
people who want school prayer
support the moment of silence,
which he said shows it is just
another way of having prayer. He
also opposed the new law
allowing equal access of religious
groups in high schools if I
groups are allowed as
extra-curricular activities.''
He said a line has to bee
