NEWTON, Mass. (JTA) — A re-
search study by a University of
Rochester student, conducted here
has demonstrated that a connec-
tion exists between the degree of
observance in a Jewish home and
success of the child from that home
in learning Hebrew grammar at
his religious school.
The researcher constructed two
scales to measure family commit--;
ment, according to a report in the
Temple Emanuel Bulletin. On one
scale, the synagogue staff rated
member families by Jewish obser-;
vances, attendance at synagogue
and adult education programs and
participation in Jewish organiza-
tional activity. On the second
scale, the pupils rated his own ■
family. Ratings were compared
mathematically with the results :
of a standardized examination of
Hebrew language achievement.
The third factor, that of the intel-
ligence of the pupil, also was
measured to rule out variations
from differing intellectual abilities
of the children.

Rhode Island Rabbis
Join Grape Boycott Plea

Rhode Island Board of Rabbis has
joined its Massachusetts counter-
! part in urging a boycott of Cali-
fornia table grapes as a gesture of
support for striking grape pickers.
Rabbi Jerome Gurland of Cran-
ston, president of the Rhode Island
Organization, issued a statement
backing the boycott organized by
the Farm Workers Organizing
Committee (AFL-CIO) because
"the grape pickers are a vestige
of labor oppression . . . and are
being exploited with substandard
wages and de-humanizing living
conditions." Rabbi Gurland in-
voked the Talmudic injunction
against "Oshek"—"oppression of a
hired man" — as justification for
the boycott call.
