Chicago Rabbi Urges Christians Not to Resort to Conversion of Jews

CHICAGO (JTA) A Chicago
rabbi warned Christians to stop
trying to convert Jews to Chris-
tianity when carrying on dialogues
with Jews concerning areas of dif-
ferences and agreement.
Addressing a conference at Loy-
ola University of teachers in Cath-
olic and Protestant seminaries,
Rabbi Ralph Simon, of Cong. Rod-

lei Zedek, said that "Jews wish to
accept Christian friendship, but
not at the price of their religion,"
according to the Sentinel, Chicago
Jewish weekly.
One of the great difficulties in
such dialogues, Rabbi Simon de-
clared, "arises from the fact that,
theologically, Christians are obli-
gated to carry the message of their
religion to others. The problem is

how to do this when it provokes
resentment from Jews."
He pointed out that many Chris.
tian theologians today feel that
no missionary efforts should. be

directed to the Jewish people be-
cause of their special status. "In-
stead," he said, "it is felt that the
Christian, through his own life, can
demonstrate the values of his re-

ligion."

NEW YORK—Knowing the first
year of marriage is the hardest—
financially — 74 congregations in
the New York area, affiliated with
the United Synagogue of America
(Conservative), have now thrown
their membership rolls open, free
of dues or other charges, to all
newlyweds.
The only requirement is that the
couple be married by the rabbi of
a synagogue subscribing to the pro-
gram. In this way, it is hoped,
more synagogues will be encour-
aged to participate in the program.

Synagogue Members More Liberal
on Rights Action, Poll Concludes

NEW YORK (JTA)—Rabbis, by
and large, have not had to face
as many difficulties as many of
their Christian colleagues with
their congregations over the ques-
tion of active participation in the
civil rights movement, according
to a survey by the Wall Street
Journal.
The paper said that the question
of whether a clergyman's duty was
to his immediate spiritual flock or
whether it included "support for
man's rights — particularly civil
rights — everywhere" was plagu-
ing an increasing number of
churchmen and their congrega-
tions. It quoted an official of the
National Conference on Race and
Religion as saying that clergymen
were "growing more liberal while
churchgoers are becoming more
conservative."
Discussing the situation of the
rabbis active in civil rights, the
paper reported that "N e 1 s o n
Gueck, president of Hebrew Union

Colleges in Cincinnati, New York,
Los Angeles, and Jerusalem, as-
serts that most Jewish congrega-
tions are extremely liberal and, if
anything, have a "disproportion-
ately' large involvement in civil
rights demonstrations. Some syna-
gogue-goers, however, concede that
older members of their congrega-
tions, with businesses in Negro
neighborhoods, frown on civil
rights agitation because they say
it spurs Negro vandalism and re-
sentment against white store own-
ers."

United Synagogue
History Outlined
in Karp's Brochure

Edited by Rabbi Abraham J.
Karp, "A History of the United
Synagogue of America, 1913-1963"
offers the basic facts about the rise
and progressive development of
the Conservative movement.
Commencing with the presiden-
cies of Prof. Solomon Schechter,
Dr. Cyrus Adler and Prof. Louis
Ginzberg, the United Synagogue
movement has since then been
headed by laymen who have taken
a deep interest in the advancement
of Conservatism in Jewish reli-
gious ranks.
This book describes the emer-
gence of its existence, the Camp
Ramah activities, its publications.
Of interest is the insertion of a
reproduction of a Hebrew message
with an English translation sent
to the United Synagogue conven-
tion in 1926 by Chaim Nachman
Bialik.
