Criticize Writer-Rabbi Who Swapped Pulpit
for Hollywood Job to 'Reach' Audience

PHILADELPHIA—A national
vice-president of the United
Synagogue of Am erica took
sharp issue with a Reform rabbi
who recently exchanged his pul-
pit for a Hollywood screenwrit-
ing career because he judged
movie audiences to be more re-
ceptive to religion than syna-
gogue congregations.
Speaking at dedication exer-
cises of Beth Am Congregation
here, Emanuel Scoblionko of
Allentown, Pa., said:
"If religious leaders have not
abdicated their duties in favor
of the government of the United
States, we certainly are not go-
ing to abdicate in favor of Hol-
lywood."
Rabbi Herbert Tarr, whose
best-selling novel "The Conver-
sion of Chaplain Cohen" will be
made into a movie, recently
gave up his rabbinical career
to go to Hollywood as a screen-
writer.
Scoblionko said he did not
question the need to bring the
message of religion to movie
audiences. American society, he
said, would be the gainer if
more movie scripts came from
divinely inspired men and wom-
en. He added:
"However, I do challenge the
young rabbi's unfortunate asper-

sion upon the receptivity of
synagogue worshippers to the
message of religion. As a lay-
man, I can tell the rabbi that
far from being unreceptive,
s y n a go g u e worshippers are
thirsting more than ever for
that message.
"Unlike movie audiences who
require entertainment with their
religion and who expect the
Hollywood dreamland's 'happy
ending,' synagogue worshippers
require only that their teacher
of Judaism be a knowledgeable
Jew who teaches by example
as well as precept."
