CCAR Delegates to Draft ResOlution on Israel at Conference Here

Action to overhaul a number
of platforms of long standing
was advocated here Tuesday
evening in the address of Rabbi
Bernard J. Bamberger, presi-
dent of the Central Conference
of American Rabbis, at the
71st annual convention at the
Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel.
In opening the convention,
which is being attended by over
500 Reform rabbis from various
parts of the country, Dr. Bam-
berger, rabbi of Cmg. Shaaray
Tefila in New York, urged:
1. Action on a new platform
reformulating the CCAR's po-
sition on church-state issues;
2. Overhaul of the social jus-
tice platform, which he said
had not been revised since
1928; and
3. Creation of a special com-
mittee to draft a declaration
of principles on the relation
of Reform Judaism to Jewish
nationalism and the relation of
American Jewry to the state of
Israel.
The conference was greeted
by Nathaniel H. Goldstick, past
president of Temple Israel,
who, as Detroit Corporation
Counsel, represented Mayor
Louis C. Miriani.

Goldstick told the visiting
rabbis of the "exemplary work"
of Dr. Richard C. Hertz, of
Temple Beth El, and Dr. Leon
Fram and Rabbi M. Robert
Syme, of Temple Israel, in not
only serving their congrega-
tions, but in Ja 1 7ing part in
municipal affairs and serving
as members of the Mayor's cab-
inet through various local com-
mittees.
Dr. Bamberger, who was in-
troduced to the conference by
Rabbi Albert G. Minda, vice-
president from Minneapolis, ex-
panded on his statement on
Israel by stating that the CCAR
"has not attempted to resolve
the theological, ethical and so-
ciological questions that the
situation has raised."
While adopting resolutions
supporting Israel, joining in its
celebrations and voicing our
concern over "the denial of
status to liberal Judaism . . .
we have not yet attempted to
articulate a consistent philos-
ophy on the relation between

the national and religious as-
pects of Jewish life," Dr. Bam-
berger said.
In supporting the president's
call for a new statement on
the church-state issue, the con-
ference shifted its emphasis
from constitutional to theologi-
cal grounds.
"Society," t h e resolution
stated, "will be redeemed not
by the formal amenities of re-
ligion but by the, commitment
of men to its ethical ideals."
"By sparing the life of Adolf
Eichmann, Israel will reach a
heroic ethical level," Dr. Ed-

mond Cahn, professor of law at
New York University, told the
rabbinical conference on
Wednesday.
By convicting Eichmann and
recommending mercy, Dr. Cahn
said, "the whole world would
respond with gratitude and ad-
miration."

Among the other conference
speakers were Dr. Joseph- Rat-
ner, of New York University;
and Dr. Harlow Shapley, Har-
vard University.
The conference will conclude
on Sunday, with reports, spe-
cial resolutions and the elec-
tion of new officers.
