daily recitation of grace before
eating and the singing of
Christmas carols and Hanukah
songs in New Jersey public
schools were upheld this week-
end by State Education Cor•-
mi§sioner Frederick M. Rau-
binger, who dismissed an appeal
against these practices filed by
parents of two Freehold schoo
children.
The petitioners, Mr
John J. Gould, who
in the Jewish fait
t said they
were agnostics,
d ' sought to
have the prat' s stopp
the ground t
wer
and uncons
tional.
Gould said t
purposely id
not mention
fact that ey
were Jewish- i
e petiti
"be-
cause we are n influe d by
any Jewish phi
phy in this
action."
The grace recited before milk
breaks in the New J e r s e y
schools consists of Psalm 136
of the Old Testament while
various Christmas carols and
the Jewish Hallel f e s t i v al
prayer are c h ant e d before
Christmas and Hanukah resepc-
tively. In rejecting the petition,
Commissioner Raubinger said
that the passage recited as
grace was "part of our national
culture and heritage" and that
the carols and Hanukah songs
were necessary "to properly de-
velop the social growth of the
individual pupils."
