Beth Am Students Explore Concern
of Congregation if Member Is Slumlord

"Does a congregation have any
obligation to concern itself about
a member who is a slum landlord,
cited frequently for health and
safety violations in his tenements?"
This was the question asked
in the current issue of Keeping
Posted, a publication of the Union
of American Hebrew Congregations
(Reform), and answered by stu-
dents of Temple Beth Am's reli-
gious school.
The panelists, from grades 10
through 12, included Donn Gold-
stick, Maur e e n Davidson, Sue
Farer, Naomi Seedberg, Debbie
Midanek and Doug Rosengarten.
