The Jewish Community Council,
commenting on inquiries received
with the advent of the Christmas
season regarding religious pro-
grams in the public schools, stat-
ed that in consultation with na-
tional Jewish agencies and based
on local experiences as well as the
experiences of Jewish communi-
ties throughout the country, a gen-
erally accepted set of guidelines
has been adopted for the guidance
and reference of interested par-
ents and teachers. The statement
"Basically, the Jewish Com-
munity Council adheres to the
conviction that religious obser-
vances do not belong in the public
school. This position has been sup-
ported by recent United States
Supreme Court rulings which see
such practices as a violation of the
principle of separation of church
"The traditional position of Jew-
ish communities has been that the
home and synagogue are respon-
sible for the maintenance and
furtherance of religion, and that
religious observances outside of -a
religious setting can only become
diluted and meaningless. While
public schools have a responsibil-
ity to teach pupils that religious
diversities exist and that accept-
ance of and respect for such dif-
ferences are basic to American
democracy, this implies no need
on the part of public schools to
teach religious doctrines or to en-
gage in religious practices.
"Based on these principles, the
Community Council has tradi-
tionally opposed any sectarian ob-
servance of religious holidays in
public schools, or joint religious

role as counselors in human prob-
lems, and social workers, were
delineated at a conference here
by Rabbi Richard J. Israel, direc-
tor and chaplain to Jewish stu-
dents for the Bnai Brith Hillel
Foundation at Yale University.
Rabbi Israel addressed the 11th
annual conference of the Federa-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies'
commission on synagogue rela-
"For many rabbis," he said,
"insofar as they view themselves
as counselors with a distinct func-
tion, different from that of the
caseworker, the difference derives
from their claim that they have
some unique insights which they
take from the tradition, and which
can and should be applied to
everyday life situations. Both
liberal and traditional rabbis hold
this attitude," Rabbi Israel said.
"The social worker, on the
other hand, usually contends that
at work he is a neutral tech-
nician of the soul. He works from
an assumption about human na-
ture which says that the sound
psyche will itself be able to choose
that which is appropriate."
Rabbi Israel said there was only
"partial truth" in each of these
claims. "We do not get our values
handed to us whole from books,
and neither do we form them al-
together existentially out of our
own inner lives that are in con-
tact with the past," he said.
