Jews Must Stand for Church, State
Separation, JCC Panel States

The survival of a strong Amer-
ican public- school system was
declared to be an essential to
freedom by speakers and panel-
ists at the Jewish Community
Council's two day Institute on
Church, State and Religious
Freedom. Members and repre-
sentatives of Council affiliated
organizations participated in
workshops and plenary sessions
at the Jewish Center, discussing
current problems of church and
state separation facing the Jew-
ish community.
Philip Jacobson, program. co-
ordinator of the NCRAC, traced
the history of church related in-
fluences on public education in
the United States at the opening
of the Institute. The preponder-
antly Protestant religious char-
acter of early American schools,
he stated, underwent dramatic
changes. These were brought
about, in part, by the pressure
of Catholic groups, including
Court litigation objecting to the
use of the Protestant version
of the Bible. The conflict re-
sulted in serious tensions re-
sulting on one occasion, in the

burning of a Catholic church.
The exercise of religion in the
public schools became an issue
again after World War I when
Christian religious groups re-
lated the moral needs of the
period to a need for more ex-
tensive religious instruction in
the public schools. This resulted
in such developments as "re-
lease time" programs.
The entry of the Jewish com-
munity of America into church-
state problems has been a post-
World War II phenomenon, Ja-
cobson stated. He lauded what
he said was the "historic contri-
bution" of American Jews in
clarifying and strengthening the
concept of separation of church
and state.
Rabbi Adler stated that "sec-
ularism is not the enemy of reli-
gion or neutral to morality,"
that position of Americn Jews
has advanced the understanding
that religion is not served only
by prayer or ceremony.
"Religion," Rabbi Adler said,
"must be socially relative as
well as theologically absolute,"
and it cannot meet this respon-
sibility without the existence of
a secular arena.
There was agreement also
that Jewish communities must
exercise a sense of priorities in
complaining a b o u t religious
practices in public schools. Not
every situation, it was pointed
out, justifies the same intensity
of reaction.
Panelists at the Sunday ses-
sion, Dr. Norman Drachler, Rab-
bi Max Kapustin and Jacobson,
reacted to the reports of the
workshop chairmen. The panel-
ists were in agreement about
standing by the principle of
church state separation. The cau-
tion was raised, however, about
the danger of "dogmatism" in
rejection of every plan that is
advanced for aiding private or
parochial schools.
Sidney M. Shevitz, Council
president, moderated the closing
session. Zeldon Cohen was chair-
man of the Institute. Hostess at
the Sunday morning continental
breakfast were Mrs. Harvey
Lewis and Mrs. Theodore Rosen.

Jewish Meals

By Mildred Grossberg Benin

Each year during the autumn
months the pictures on bill-
boards and in advertisements
are filled with colorful orange
pumpkins, for the pumpkin • is
one of the symbols of our North
American fall. Yet when we
think of the pumpkin as an item
of cooking, to most of us it is
synonymous with pie and noth-
ing else; and when we make
the pie we usually start with
canned pumpkin. The fresh, if
used at all, is as an ornament.
The first selected recipe is
one which was adapted from a
favorite of the Iraqi Jews.
These preserves resemble mar-
malade, but are delicious as a
sweet relish with poultry. They
also rated raves when they were
served as a topping for ice
cream. The second recipe is
for delicious spicy cookies to de-
light the heart of any child.
These are especially attractive
when frosted as the recipe sug-

2 lbs. fresh pumpkin
2 cups sugar
2 small pieces ginger
3 /4 cup finely chopped walnuts
Grated rind and juice of 2
Peel the pumpkin, remove the
seeds and strings. Cut the flesh into
thin slices, and cut each slice Into
1-ineh pieces. Place in a heavy
saucepan., add the sugar, lemon
juice and rind, and the ginger. Stir
until the sugar dissolves, cover the
pan, and let stand overnight. Un-
cover, bring to a boil, then simmer
about 45 minutes until the pieces
acquire a glazed appearance and
the syrup becomes thick. Remove
from the heat and stir in the wal-
nuts. This amount makes approxi-
mately 2 cups. Chill before using.
11/2 cups mashed cooked or can-
ned pumpkin
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar

1 egg

2% cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup seedless raisins
3 teaspoons double-acting bak-
ing powder
1 /4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
IA teaspoon powdered cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Red and yellow food coloring
If fresh pumpkin is used, press
the cooked vegetable through a
sieve or food mill to remove all
lumps. Cream the shortening with
the sugar. Vegetable shortening,
butter or margarine may be used.
Add the egg and beat until light
and smooth. Stir in the pumpkin.
Sift together flour, baking powder,
and spices, and stir into the batter.
Add the raisins. For a brighter color
add a few drops of red and yellow
food coloring. Drop by rounded
tablespoons on greased baking
sheets about 2 inches apart, as the
cookies spread as they bake. Bake
at 350 degrees F. about 15 minutes
until delicately brown. Cool on
racks. These cookies are very good
plain but are particularly attractive
if decorated with an icing made by
combining 1 cup of sifted confec-
tioners' sugar with just enough apri-
cot or orange juice to make a
frosting stiff enough to hold its
shape. Tint to a pretty orange with
a few drops of red and yellow food
coloring and spread in the center of
the cookies in the shape of a pump-
kin. This recipe makes about 4
dozen soft cookies.
