`Thought' in Thoughtfulness:
Over-Reaching Our Bounds

By the Oak-Woodser
To be critical of an act of
brotherhood, especially one con-
eived in generosity and sin-
cerity and carried out in the
true spirit of goodwill, might be
treading on perilous — almost
Yet, we feel that sometimes
even a thoughtful act can be
carried out without thought;
that we can be so overwhelmed
with our attempts to do a good
deed that we lose sight of our
aims and purposes.
We refer to a recent action
by a local Jewish organization,
which; in the name of the or-
ganization. built and contFib-
uted an altar to a Catholic con-
Of little means, in a poor
section of the city, the convent
was in dire need of assistance.
The Catholic sisters wished a
new altar to conduct worship,
and their wish became known to
a Jewish businessman.
As a personal gift from Jew
to Catholic, it might have in-
deed been a fine gesture of
But to give an object of
such deep spiritual signifi-
cance as an altar in the name
of a Jewish organization—
that organization having been
created to foster positive
goals of Judaism — is quite
another matter.
What we do as individuals,
we have only to answer to our-
selves and to God. When we act
in the name of the community,
we are responsible to many for
those actions.
And there are many Jews who
feel that the gift of a religious
object, other than one's own, is
not an appropriate offering.
One cannot take away from
the spirit in which the gift was
made, but it is possible to sug-
gest that in inter-faith dealings
our organizations consider their
reesponsibility to the Jewish
There are many areas in
which efforts need . be made to
foster goodwill, and perhaps
more than any other is that of
Good relations are important,

Wed in Israel

Ibut underlying the entire struc-
ture of our ability to get along
with our neighbor is having him
understand us as a fellow
human being whose beliefs are
somewhat different, but whose
goals are basically the same.
We recall a program pre-
sented recently by the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith in cooperation with the
Detroit Council of Churches, in
which the Passover seder was
compared to the Holy Eucharist.
What a giant .step this was
in promoting better relations,
in educating our non-Jewish
neighbors. Some 400 Christian
school teachers learned much
they previously had not
known about the Jews that
day. And much of it will be
passed along to the young-
sters that they teach.
If our organizations seek
tasks of a religious nature,
there are many Jewish institu-
tions, synagogues and youth
centers who would be most
grateful for any support or as-
sistance they might be able to
obtain from their fellow Jews.
