The Suburban Community

Defends Motives of Jews
Now Joining Synagogues

By the Oak-Woodser
How refreshing it was to read
a statement made earlier this
month by Dr. Bernard Segal,
executive director of the United
Synagogue of America, on the
status of Jews and the syna-
gogue.
Addressing the opening of the
USA convention at Kiamesha
Lake, N. Y., the Conservative
Jewish leader became among
the first significant defenders of
Jewish families newly-affiliated
with congregational life when
he said:
"The great number of Jews
affiliating with synagogues
are not doing so because of
`status-seeking' as some social
scientists claim, but because
they have a genuine desire to
come closer to Judaism."
We have long felt that this
was more fact than fiction, and
have frequently said so when
speaking glowingly of the re-

birth of Judaism in the suburban
areas.
More often than not, how-
ever, our leaders tend to
espouse more alarmist views,
such as those spoken by Abra-
ham Redelheim, president of
the Zionist Organization of
America last week at a national
executive council meeting of
ZOA in New York.
In calling for an overhaul in
our education system, Redel-
heim warned that "before our
very eyes we see large Jewish
set t 1 e m e n t s, particularly in
suburbia, drifting away from
our spiritual heritage and be-
coming strangers to traditional
Judaism."
He added that the "alleged
revival of religion that is so
much touted about represents
but a temporary response to
what we may describe as 'gim-
mick' Judaism."
True, there is some cause for
alarm that our educational sys-
tems are in need of overhaul;
that we need better teachers;
that we must raise our standards
to produce a more knowledgable
generation of Jews.
We believe, however, that the
time has come to halt the fancy
phrases—the similar statements
garnished in different words—
and come up with goals, not
merely criticism.
We must be patient in our
" approach, remembering that
it was only a half generation
ago that vast numbers of our
young people were interested
in Judaism neither as a .re-
ligion nor as a way of life.
Now parents themselves, these
young people are coming back
to Judaism, and they are bring-
ing their children into the re-
ligious schools and Hebrew
schools. -
Their motives are not to be
questioned as being insincere.
They are seeking a Jewish edu-
cation for their children that
they themselves never had, and
they are joining congregations
in large numbers to assure this
education.
We doubt very much that this
change in direction is "a tempo-
rary response" as Mr. Redel-
heim. claims. We have every
right to believe that close con-
tact with our religious institu-
tions will be permanent.
But it is our chore now to
assure that permanence through
constructive programs of adult
education that will permit the
parents to catch up to the
children in Jewish learning.
