)Conservative Plan for Holidays
Ma'- Mean 'Excommunication'

NEW YORK (JTA)—An Ortho-
dox leader has threatened that
acceptance by Conservative Jews
of a proposal to change from a
compulsory two-day observance of I
three biblical festivals to one day
as practiced in Israel "might lead
to formal action of excommunica
tion of the deviationists."
The plan assailed by Rabbi Ber-
nard Weinberger, president of the
Rabbinical Alliance of America,
was proposed by Rabbi Ralph
Simon, president of the Rabbinical
Assembly. the rabbinic body , of
Conservative Judaism, at its 69th
annual convention.

Council of America, and Rabbi
Joseph Karasick, president of the'
Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
Rabbi Weinberger denounced the
plan as a "shockingly insidious en-
croachment upon hallowed Jewish
tradition" and said that if it were
adopted, the Orthodox community
would "totally divorce itself from
any contact with Conservative and
Reform Jews."
