4 Student Rabbis
to Work in Slums
NEW YORK (JTA) — At least
four Reform student rabbis will
live and work in the slums of major
cities this summer in the second
year of the rabbinic internship
in urban affairs program. Rabbi
Balfour Brickner reported.
The project is sponsored by the
commission on interfaith activities
of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis, and
the Jewish Chautauqua Society,
all institutions of Reform Judaism.
The Protestant and Catholic
churches have sponsored such ac-
tivities widely for several years,
but the Reform program is the first
under Jewish religious sponsorship,
according to Rabbi Brickner, di-
rector of the commission. He ex-
plained that efforts were continu-
ing to arrange for more such
placements for student rabbis this
The rabbinic intern works with
Protestant and Catholic urban min-
isters to study at first hand the
problems of the urban poor; to pro-
vide help in specific anti-poverty
efforts, to probe the tensions be-
tween whites and Negroes, evalu-
ate the response of public and pri-
vate agencies to the problems of
the inner cities and examine the
attitudes of the Jewish community
toward the urban crisis. He also
is expected to make proposals on
action programs the Jewish com-
munity might undertake for the
urban poor, Rabbi Brickner said.
In each instance. the internship
is under sponsorship of the local
Reform congregations, or, as in
St. Louis, under sponsorship of
the SL Louis Federation of Reform
Congregations. The other cities for
this summer are Washington, Chi-
cago and Milwaukee. The student
rabbi reports to the local commu-
nity relations council executive
and to the commission, on a week-

school educational curriculum, and college students. Many congrega-

tions for the rabbi and congrega- lege programs where rabbis visit

Rabbi Jack Stern, CCAR youth
chairman, observed that "many
youngsters today are particular-
ly disturbed about the Vietnam
war and the military draft.
While many of our young peo-
ple involve themselves actively
in peace organizations, civil
rights causes and other social
activities, we have failed to make
them understand the relationship
between the teachings of Juda-
ism and the ideals they carry out
The Reform rabbi considered it *
imperative that "Jewish youngsters Id.
fully understand the ethical, moral
and theological foundations of Ju-
daism to apply them in their de-
cision-making process on the many
social and personal questions con.
fronting them today."
