Orthodox Synagogue
'Blacklisted' in East

A ban on an Orthodox synagogue
in suburban Longmeadow was de-
clared by the Union of Orthodox
Rabbis of the United States and
Canada. The congregation is Bnai
Jacob Synagogue.

The ban strips the synagogue of
its sanctity and forbids its use for
services and other religious events
by the Orthodox communities of
Springfield and Longmeadow.

Dr. Lewin is recognized as one
of Orthodox Jewry's foremost

elected representative. With the
outbreak of World War II, he
turned his efforts to rescue work
after barely escaping from the
Nazis. Within three months after
V-E Day, Dr. Lewin was in Europe
on a relief and rehabilitation mis-
sion, and he contacted the remain-
ing inmates of Nazi concentration
camps as well as the displaced per-
sons who survived the holocaust.

The rabbinic body charged the
synagogue and its ritual commit-
tee with alleged severing of "the
historic character of the syna-
gogue" and with "deviating from
spokesmen before international

bodies and its accredited repre-

on to do so whenever possible."

The rabbinical group explained
that this would not only "be in ac-
cord with Jewish tradition," but
that it would also "be of help to
the rabbis who, because of their
limited number, are unable to an-
swer all requests" for such appear-
ances in Buffalo.


During World War II, Dr. Lewin
was co-editor of the "Black Book
of Polish Jewry," and recently he
edited "These Will I Remember"
(three volumes in Hebrew), con-
taining biographies of Jewish reli-
gious leaders who died as martyrs
of World War II.
Dr. Lewin has undertaken the
defense of many important Jew-
ish causes. It was at his urging
that the UN Subcommission on
Prevention of Discrimination
and Protection of Minorities
agreed in 1952 to study discrim-
ination in the area of religious
rights and practices.
The study resulted, in 1960, in
the adoption of "Principles
Against Religious Discrimination,"
the first internationally approved
basic rules on the subject.
In his book, "In the Struggle
Against Discrimination," Prof. Le-
win has provided a guide for those
who seek information on shehita
and calendar reform, two import-
ant issues effecting world Jewry.
He is a prolific writer who has be-
come considered an expert on in-
ternational law and humane leg-
islation. He has published works in
English, Hebrew, Yiddish, Polish
and German.
