Synagogue Council Reelects
Rabbi Uri Miller, Praises
Church Body and ASPCA

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW YORK—Rabbi Uri Miller
of Baltimore was reelected presi-
dent of the Synagogue Council of
America at the 38th annual meet-
ing of the SCA, coordinating agen-
cy of Conservative, Orthodox and
Reform rabbinical and congrega-
tional organizations.
The SCA lauded the resolution
of the National Council of Church-
es, which con-
7
demned anti -
Semitism. It also
praised the ef-
forts of t h e
American Socie-
ty for the Pre-
vention of Cruel-
ty to Animals
"f or helping
bring about a
solution to the
problem of pre- Miller
paring and hoisting animals for
ritual slaughter."
The resolution called the work
of the ASPCA in developing
"Without royalty or profit to it-
self" d e v i c es to eliminate
shackling and hoisting "an un- I
precedented contribution."
Another resolution described
the Lord's Prayer as "a uniquely
Christian prayer" and warned
Jews against reciting it. The reso-
lution said that "requiring stu-
dents in public schools to recite
this prayer is an infringement on
freedom of religion and con-
science."
In a related resolution, the orga-
nization urged the defeat of the
amendment offered by Rep. Frank
Becker, New York Republican, to
permit prayers and other religious
observances in the public schools.
Amendment of the Constitution
for that purpose, the resolution
asserted, "would open the way to
religious tension, a misuse of pub-
lic institutions and irreverence."
The SCA renewed its "appeal
to the conscience of mankind to
help eliminate the religious, cul-
tural and spiritual restrictions
which Soviet Jewry now faces."
The resolution pledged that "our
concern for our brothers in the
Soviet Union will not diminish,
and our desire to build spiritual
bridges with our coreligionists in

Russia will remain paramount
on our agenda."
The SCA noted that some of its
constituents had "expressed con-
cern regarding policies of many
community centers and Y's affil-
iated with the National Jewish
Welfare Board" which "indicated
at times a lack of regard for the
sensitivities of Jewish religious
communities in the United States."
The resoluton asked establish-
ment of "an advisory agency to
the Jewish center division" of the
JWB on matters "affecting reli-
gion in synagogue-center relation-
ships."
Proposing that membership on
the advisory agency "be drawn
largely from such representative
synagogue bodies" as the SCA, the
resolution said the purpose of such
an advisory agency should be to
develop "a statement of policy
regarding religious practices in
Jewish centers."
The SCA also criticized the
practice of some national Jew-
ish communal agencies "which
arrange unfitting business and
communal meetings as well as
luncheons and dinners on Fri-
day evening and on the Sab-
bath day."
It called "inappropriate" the
practice of calling such meetings
"oneg shabbat" when "used as a
cover" over what "is in effect a
business meeting."

Viceroy's got the Deep Weave Filter for the taste that's right!



a month,

Viceroy is scientifically made
to taste the way you'd like a
filter cigarette to taste.
Not too strong ... not too light ...
Viceroy's got the taste that's right.

SMOKE ALL 7

Smoke all seven filter brands
and you'll agree: some taste
too strong ... while others
taste too light. But Viceroy—
with the Deep-Weave Filter,-
tastes the way you'd like a filter
cigarette to taste, That's right!
