LONDON, Ontario, (JTA)
The Presiding Bishop of the
Protestant and Episcopal
Church in the United States
said he was in full agreement
with the United States Su-
preme Court ruling last June,
which outlawed the recitation
of the Lord's Prayer in the pub-
lic schools.
The Rev. Arthur Lichten-
berger made his statement on
a visit here before going on
to Toronto for the. World An-
glican Congress there. He
added that some Episcopalians
approved of the Supreme
Court ruling and some did not.
"The Lord's Prayer is not
necessarily a mark of religious
faith," he asserted. "The Su-
preme Court decision was not
a denial of the Christian faith—
it simply put it in proper per-
spective. The United States is
a secular state of minorities."
He added that he felt the ban
on prayer recital "has opened
the way for the objective study
of religion."
His comments came against
a background of repeated
statements in the local diocesan
Anglican monthly, strongly up-
holding religious instruction in
public schools, which is per-
mitted in the Province of On-
tario. The Bishop of Huron has
denounced persons he said tried
to "interfere" by pressing for
modification or abolition of
such teachings in Ontario

the Academies of Sura and
Pumbedita, where the Babyl-

which devoted two months a
year — Adar preceeding Pass-
over, and Ellul preceeding the
High Holy Days — for convoca-
tions to study Halach and Agada.

Israel Jews Do Not Discriminate
Against Christians, Says Bishop

Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem
declared flatly that Jews in
Israel do not discriminate
against Christians. He said
that "to my knowledge there
has been no social discrimina-

similar to the kind of discrim-

The Rev. A. C. Maclnnes,
whose diocese takes in the en-
tire Middle East, came to To-
ronto to attend the World An-
glican Congress which started
this week. He said there has
been discrimination against the
200,000 Arab Christians in
Israel, "but they have been
discriminated against as Arabs,
not as Christians." He added
that it was necessary to remem-
ber that "Israel is at war with
the Arab nations."
He agreed there had been
much controversy in Israel con-
cerning Jews who have married

gard this as having anything
to do with discrimination.
There is still much debate in
Israel over the age-old ques-

adding he felt that this ac-
counted for one of the difficul-
ties in Jewish-Christian mar-
riages and problems faced by
Jewish converts to Christianity.
He said that, in Israel, the act
of a Jew becoming a Christian
