Rabbi Halpern Outlines Beth Abraham's School Plan
Rabbi Israel I. Halpern, of Cong.
Beth Abraham, explaining the new
task in behalf of his congregation's
educational program, stated this
"In initiating its new Hebrew
school, the board of trustees of
my synagogue has undertaken an
ambitious, costly and forward-
looking program in Jewish educa-
tion for the benefit of our own
synagogue family and other fam-
ilies who choose to send their chil-
dren to our own Hebrew school.
To my mind, this is commendable
in every respect, and, therefore,
deserving of encouragement and
Commenting on the report in
last week's Jewish News regarding
the United Hebrew Schools' posi-
tion, Rabbi Halpern said it is "ex-
tremely presumptuous"- to speak
of a transfer of students to another
"From personal knowledge," he
said in a statement to The Jewish
News, "having once registered my
own child in the United Hebrew
Schools for a single semester, and
from my close involvement of
many years with the Hebrew
Schools' administrative and educa-
tional procedures, I know that no
`contracts' are made with United
Hebrew Schools students for more
than a single semester year and
even this arrangement is quite
informal and non-binding."
The Beth Abraham Hebrew
School will commence functioning
in the synagogue and the Kennedy
School, with registrations now in
progress. Transportation will be

Abram, U. S. representative to

the main speaker at the day's ses-
sion of the biennial General Synod
of the United Church of Christ,
meeting at the Palmer House in
Chicago. "I plead for a dialogue

gardless of the treatment of the
draft declaration on Jews by the
fourth session of the Ecumenical
The cardinal, a leader in the
fight at the first three sessions of
the Ecumenical Council for a
strong declaration absolving the
Jewish people, past and present,
spoke at a dinner celebrating the
centenary of the Evelina de Roths-
child school in Jerusalem. The
guests included also many British
Jews prominent in the worlds of
finance, diplomacy and culture.
Proposing a toast to the school,
the prelate discussed the delibera-
tions of the Vatican Council on
the draft declaration on Jews and
expressed his hope that the final
results "would bring comfort to
the Jews." He predicted that in
the years to come Catholics would
admit there had been injustices
against Jews. He then said: "My
view denies absolutely the charge
of deicide—I will not shrink from
the truth and I will fight for jus-
Praising the prelate's address,
Maurice Edelman, president of the

gathering that the Archbishop was
esteemed by Jews not only in
Britain but throughout the world.
