S. African Orthodox
Rabbis End Boycott
of Reform Rabbis

South Africa's Orthodox Rabbis
cancelled a boycott of Reform
rabbis and thus ended a sharp
dispute within South African
Jewry which became so heated
that the general press carried
reports on "religious war" in
the Jewish community.
The dispute broke out when
Rabbi Ahron Opher came to
South Africa from Chicago to
become the senior rabbi of
Johannesburg's United Progres-
sive Jewish Congregation, the
leading Reform synagogue. He
made a number of statements
embodying the classical Reform
opposition to the Jewish dietary
laws. He also criticized Johan-
nesburg's Orthodox-based Jew-
ish day schools. The Orthodox
rabbinate responded heatedly
and issued a boycott against at-
tendance at any Jewish or com-
munal functions at which a Re-
formed rabbi was present.
A heavily attended meeting
of the Federation of Orthodox
Synagogues approved a resolu-
tion appealing to the Orthodox
rabbinate to withdraw the boy-
cott. Dr. Israel Bersohn, who
presided at the meeting of con-
gregational leaders, said that
the boycott decision had been
taken without consultation with
the lay leaders. He said the lay
leaders understood the resent.
ment of the Orthodox rabbis
but felt that religious strife
should not be carried out into
the secular field in which both
groups had previously acted in
He cited the appeal from the
late Judge Kuper and a letter
from the South African Jewish
Board of Deputies, containing
a similar appeal. He then re-
ported on a letter from the
Orthodox Rabbis Association,
declaring they would accede
to the appeals and end the boy-
cott if the Federation's resolu-
tion for an end to the boycott
included a criticism of Rabbi
Opher's remarks. Such a criti-
cism was then incorporated in
the resolution.

ture discussions on both the
ethical and moral principles of
Judaism and on its practices as
shown in the rituals and holi-
day celebrations in the life of
a Jew.
Speakers will be Rabbi Ernst
Conrad of Temple Beth Jacob
in Pontiac and Rabbi Milton
Rosenbaum of Temple Emanu-
Guests are invited to a com-
plimentary dinner which will
include some -dishes of food
traditionally associated with the
Jewish "people. Holiday tables
will be displayed to illustrate
the celebrations in the home,
with sisterhood members ready
to explain their use and sig-
nificance. In addition, the Tem-
ple choir will sing some of the
liturgical music of the, syna-
gogue service.
The program is planned in co-
operation with the Detroit
Council of Churches and with
the Catholic Archdiocese of
President of the Sisterhood

Mrs. Bertram. Kaatz and Mrs.
Joseph Maltzer as chairman of

Good Deeds
Holy Writ does not say: "And
God saw the sack-cloth and the
ashes of the people of Nineveh,"
and, therefore, spared them; but
rather, "God saw their works"—
their good deeds — that they
turned from the evil way and
from the violence that was in
their bonds. — Talmud Taanith
