Controversies .. .
There are too many of them in the Jewish communities of
America today, and the sooner they are settled the better.
Controversies, dialogues, confrontations, disputations — all
of them are signs of a healthy and free community. However,
when they deteriorate to a point of bitterness they lose all
A controversy that promises to get out of hand is the one
between Orthodox Jewish circles and seven national Jewish or-
ganizations of various shades of religious opinion on the issue
of • rabbinic influence in Israel. This development on the Amer-
ican Jewish scene comes at a time when Jewish unity is an
absolute imperative if a way is still to be found to spare the
Jewish community in the Soviet Union from complete religious
and cultural decimation.
Orthodox sources have advised this writer they would do
everything possible to avoid involvement in a cultural conflict
with other Jewish religious segments in the country, but that
they would not compromise their principles or be driven into
a corner of Jewish life just for the sake of Jewish unity.
It is difficult to predict what path this controversy will take,
one Orthodox rabbi told me over a cup of coffee. However, mini-
mized the view that a wide segment of opinion in Orthodox
Jewry favored withdrawal from the forthcoming Washington
conference on the Jewish situation in the Soviet Union. "When
it comes to saving Jews," he observed as he led me to the thres-
hold, "we are all ready to link s hands with other Jews, whether
religious, secular or, God, forbid, even irreligious."
The impression I carried off was that this gentle figure in
the Orthodox rabbinate felt that, having spoken out on the issue
of religious life in Israel, it would be well for Orthodox circles
to concentrate more on the American religious vineyard and
let the Israel rabbinate take care of the problem there.
A second Jewish controversy that has engendered much bit-
teniess—and this time among scholars—is the fight over the
transfer of the American Jewish Historical Society from New
York to Brandeis University.
This writer learns that a court action has been started by
the dissenters to keep the society's headquarters in New York
where, they claim, it rightfully belongs for a number of reasons.
Opponents of the transfer claim in essence that it would rob
the society of the widest possible availability of its archives to
scholars and that the move could only serve as a hindrance to
a projected amalgamtion of number of other such institutions
under one roof.


To commemorate the 50th

The celebrants were married
April 1, 1914, in Germany and
came to the United States as
honeymooners. They have lived

Matter Closed:
Open Door a Must
at Brandeis U.

The Brandeis University board
of trustees, in a letter to the
president and president-elect of
the student council, reaffirmed
the Brandeis administration's
"open-door" ruling.
The affirmation followed a
student petition for the board
to review the actions of the
administration in ruling that
during dormitory visiting hours
doors must be left open when
members of the opposite sex are
in students' rooms.
The letter, addressed to
Student Council President
Victor Hausner and President-
elect Steven Mora, stated that,
"the open-door rule is affirm-
ed and its strict enforcement
is required." The letter was
signed by the board of trus-
tees chairman, Norman S.
Rabb, and Samuel L. Slos-
berg, secretary.
Commenting on the student
protest following the March 3
announcement of the rule
change, the trustees' letter
stated: "Brandeis students are
intellectually eager. They are
sometimes impatient with the
requirements of an organized
campus society and its concomit-
ant responsibilities. They can
have a voice in many phases of
campus life; indeed, they al-
ready do have such a voice. But
they cannot ignore established
procedures of the institution in
which they have enrolled."

Hias Leaders' Role
inJamaica to Aid
Escapees from Cuba

The Jewish News article on
Jamaica and the role that was
played by Hias leaders in aiding
Cuban refugees had a regret-
table error. It should have read
that James P. Rice and Miss
Ann Petluck were in Jamaica to
aid the refugees. It stated er-
roneously that they were in
Cuba. Both Hias leaders super-
vised the large movement of
refugees from Castro's isle dur-
ing an operation conducted with
the aid of Jamaican Jews with
headquarters in Kingston, Ja-
maica .
