Announces to Its Clientele

CEDARHURST, L.I. (JTA)-

The school board of district 15
ended a two-year controversy
over the recital of the Pro-
testant version of the Lord's
prayer this week by ordering
an immediate ban on the prayer.
Ernest E. Eldred, president
of the school beard, said the
board agreed unanimously to
substitute the last stanza of
"America" instead.
This begins: "Our. Fathers'
God to Thee, Author of Lib-
erty, to Thee we sing." Singing
of "America" is a long-standing
tradition in New York City
public schools.
The decision was endorsed in
a joint statement issued by
Rabbi Abraham V. Goodman of
Temple Israel in Lawrence,
president of the South Shore
Jewish Community Council, and
the Rev. William Galloway, pas-
tor of Our Lady of Good Coun-
sel Catholic Church in Inwood.
The Religious Council of the
Five Towns, as the affected area
is popularly known, endorsed
the ban. The Religious Council,
Rabbi Goodman and Father
Galloway also approved use of
the New York State Regents
non-sectarian prayer. This was
not involved in the District 15
controversy, but that prayer is
under attack in a court seeking
to have it barred in the Her-
ricks School District.
In New York, the American
Jewish Congress announced
that its Long Island branch
still opposes the introduction
of prayers in the public
schools, in spite of the state-
ment by Rabbi Goodman..
The dispute involves a pub-
lic school district, covering sev-
eral Long Island townships
where parents are objecting to
any prayers in the schools.
In a statement, Abraham H.
Klugsberg, executive director
of the local AJC unit, said:
"Rabbi Goodman was speaking
for himself only—and not for
the South Shore Jewish Com-
munity Council—in voicing the
approval of the Board of Re-
gents prayer.
"We wish to express em-
phatically our opposition to all
prayers in public schools,
whether they be called sec-
tarian or non-sectarian. Prayer
belongs in the home and in
houses of worship, it has no
place in a public school."
