THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Temple Emanuel's Withdrawal Valiant German
Feted by Survivors Detroit's Israel Program on Sunday
Draws Fire From UAHC
(Continued from Page 1)
Bachrach said Dr. Eisendrath
had assumed the role of spokes-
man for the entire Reform move-
ment and stressed that such a posi-
tion was "unauthorized and impos-
sible." Louis Broido, board mem-
ber of Temple Emanu-El, said that
a "bare quorum" of the board's 21
members attended the April 25
meeting at which the withdrawal
decision was made. He said he and
other opponents of the withdrawal
action would bring the issue up at
the board's May 28 meeting and
that, if it was not reversed there,
they would seek to get a reversal
at a congregational meeting, which
may be called on petition of 25
Dr. Eisendrath claimed that the
withdrawal reflected a widespread
tendency to use the Vietnam war
to "curtail free expression of opin-
ion." He also charged that "the
background for this continued dis-
pute between certain members of
the temple's board and the Union
has been a disagreement with the
Union's whole program of social
actions." He said that the "one
issue" of the Vietnam war "should
not be used as an excuse to alien-
ate the congregation of Temple
Emanu-El from, the Reform Jew-
ish movement and from the great
humanitarian, ethical and reli-
gious impulse that has bound us
Bachrach replied that Dr. Eisen-
drath "favors dissent against every-
thing except his own views." He
added that the temple had with-
drawn "because we favor dissent.
Our point is that he wants it to
appear that he represents Reform
Judaism, and we do not agree that
this is his right."
Bachrach • cited Dr. Eisen-
drath's action in joining Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King and other reli-
gious leaders to form a new or-
ganization to seek an immediate
end to the bombing of North
Vietnam "without conditions."
He also referred to an Eisen-
drath speech in Washington last
December declaring that Jews
were becoming part of the white
backlash opposed to civil rights

and said that the congregation was
using Rabbi Eisendrath's "outspo-
ken views as a pretext and scape-
goat to dissociate itself from the
Reform Jewish movement and the
enlightened views with which this
movement has ever been identi-
fied, in the spirit of Jewish pro-

Rabbi Rosenblum, who recently
