Seminary to Establish THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
School for Chaplains $1.4 Million Fire Destroys Most of Israeli Factory

NEW YORK (JTA)—A school
will be started in the fall in the
Jewish Theological Seminary of
America to provide military chap-
lains for the armed forces in a
program to replace a prior system
of compulsory military chaplaincy
for Conservative rabbinic grad-
uates which was suspended last
month.
The new school for chaplains
will be part of the seminary's rab-
binical training program, but a
student who enrolls in the new
school will do so under a require-
ment that he must enroll as a
reserve officer in a branch of the
armed forces, Seminary officials
said at a press conference.
The new school for chaplains
will have an accelerated program
requiring candidates to take 90
credits of graduate work plus
ordination in 27 calendar months.
Candidates for the new school
will be sought among present
students but not among the be-
ginning students. Students who
choose to enter the new military
chaplaincy school will be tested
physically and psychologically
to determine whether they are
qualified, Rabbi David C. Kogan,
administrative vice chancellor,
said. He added there was no
way of determining what the
membership of the new school
would be in the fall.
He said a significant element of
the new chaplaincy program will
be a requirement that all candi-
dates for the Conservative rab-
binate, who choose not to agree
to military duty, must serve a
minimum of two years as a civilian
chaplain through assignment by a
joint Seminary-Assembly commu-
nity service commission.

Early Conversionists
The first conversionist organiza-
tion in the United States was the
Female Society of Boston and

ity among the Jews, established in
1816.

French Cleric Believes
M.E. Peace 'Impossible'

PARIS (ZINS)—Charles West-
phale, head of the French Protes-
tant Organization, who has recently
returned from a visit to the Arab
countries, declared here that Arab
leaders are deluding themselves,
and live in a dream when it comes
to the question of Israel.
Commenting on the efforts to
achieve peace in the Middle East,
the French cleric said that it is
4

the Arabs and Israel to communi-

Middle East, I can well understand
why Israel considers the UN Se-
