Union of American Hebrew con-
gregations in the United States
and Canada, concluding their an-
nual convention here, indicated

that this was necessary because
"in this ecumenical age the fre-
quency of communication between
the church and the synagogue has
increased." They reelected Max
Frankel, of Temple Emanu-el,
Denver, as president.
The convention adopted a reso-
lution calling on Reform congre-
gations "to expand our participa-
tion in cooperative institutes, sem-
inars, and workshops for religious
school teachers involving religious
institutions of all faiths and de-
nominations in the community,
and to share information and
broaden interfaith understanding
to make more effective the teach-
ing of comparative religion."

NATE members adopted a
statement encouraging greater
contact and communications be-
tween youngsters of Reform,
Conservative and Orthodox Juda-
ism through social, religious and
organizational programs. The
educators felt the need not to
neglect a broader understand-
ing by the young men and wo-
men in the religious schools of
the various schools of Judaism
while, at the same time, gain-
ing a greater insight into Chris-
tianity and other religions.

ler, UAHC national director of
education, called for a radical
revision of the approach to Jew-
ish education to conform with
the pervasive changes in the
American Jewish community. He
said the present program of re-
ligious education, promulgated
decades ago, has become largely
irrelevant, and "fails to cut into
the current of our children's
deeper needs." He called for a
change of emphasis in Jewish
education from an "ethnic to a
religiously centered curricu-
lum," explaining that "the
younger generation views Juda-
ism in strictly religious terms,
and finds unintelligible the
stress placed by their parents
on a cultural, national and de-
fense-oriented Judaism."

Rabbi Schindler spoke of the
"loosening of the ethnic strains"
which once bound the American
Jewish community and of the
"compensating reinforcement of
the religious bonds expected to
serve as a unifying force in the
stead." He stated that the "secu-
lar culture or nationhood envis-
aged by many Jews of a previous
generation has proved illusory, in-
capable of fulfillment on the
American scene. The community
has become a communion, bound
by belief, turning primarily to re-
ligion to define its 'nature and to
justify its continuity."
As a first step Rabbi Schindler
announced that the commission on
Jewish education has directed its
curriculum committee, under the
chairmanship of Rabbi Samuel
Glasner, of Baltimore, to "summon
a conference of Jewish theologians
of diverse convictions not neces-
sarily to forge a unified Reform
Jewish theology, but to agree on
what we should teach our children
in the realm of belief."
