Cleveland Jewish Center
Limits Sabbath Activities

CLEVELAND, (JTA) — The
board of the Jewish Community
Center of Cleveland rescinded
plans to operate the center's
health service on. Saturday after-
noons after the proposal evoked
a sharp debate among support-
ers of the center.
The board adopted a new plan
which calls for a limited number
of Sabbath activities at the cen-
ter. Orthodox supporters had
sought a complete shutdown
during the Sabbath. Non-Ortho-
dox elements favored a wide-
spread program of activities on
that day.

The new plan calls for a num-
ber of activities for children and
teen-agers, including programs
of Jewish folk songs, Israeli
dancing, dramatization of Jewish
stories and legends' and similar
programs centered on Jewish
themes. The program provides
that users must register in ad-
vance and only for the complete
Sabbath program. This means
tLt they will not be • able to
use the swimming pool or gym-
nasium on the Sabbath without
registering for the cultural pro-
gram as well.
