15 Toronto Rabbis Hit
.Center Sabbath Opening
TOR ONTO (JTA) — Fifteen
Toronto rabbis have officially pro-
tested against the decision of the
YM and YWHA in this city to re-
main open on the Sabbath and have
called upon the Jewish community
to back them up. The rabbis issued
their protest in the form of an
open letter published as an adver-
tisement in the Jewish press. The
signatories included one Reform
and six Conservative rabbis.
The letter charged that the Y
had announced its policy of remain-
ing open on the Sabbath unilater-
ally without consulting rabbinical
authorities although a discussion
of the problem with a committee
of rabbis representing all segments
of the community was in progress.
The letter charged further that
the Toronto Y "in its cultural and
social programs . . . has progress-
ively reduced the Jewish element,
moving further and further away
from identification with Judaism.
The rabbis complained also that
the Y's snack bar does not observe
"Our recent informal discussion
with the YMHA officers and ad-
ministratiion leads us to believe
that they are sentitive to the feel-
ings of the total community," the
letter said. "Therefore we urge
the Jewish community to bring
to bear its influence on the
