Lubavitcher Decry Pseudo-Hasidism'

LOS ANGELES (JTA)—A Luba-
vitcher sAkesman has denounced
"rabbis and Jewish professionals
who are greatly removed from the
religious practices and spirit of
Hasidism" who have "recently
taken to guitars and accordions in
vain attempts to fill their empty
temples."
The charge was made by Rabbi
Shlomo Cunin, director of the Lu-
bavitcher movement on the West
Coast, who also declared that "It
has become very fashionable these
days to advertise and exploit
Hasidism, its melodies and its
prayers" in a society in which "we
have become accustomed to com-
mercializing everything."
He charged that such rabbis
and professionals hoped, by

adopting the methods of rock
:lagers, to present an "accept-
able" image of Judaism to a
modern-day society "and make
it kosher by calling it Hasidic."

He described as a "blatant mis-
conception" the "romantic theory
that the intellectual and emotional
involvement in Hasidism can be
divorced from the practical keep-
ing of the commandments."
He added that "there can be no
true, unadulterated Hasidic service
that does not conform to Halakha,
the Jewish Law: heads covered by
yarmulkes, separation of men and
women during the service and no
violation of the Sabbath by use of
microphone and banjo."
He remarked that young Jews
who had attended such "pseudo-
Hasidic" services had come to
Chabad House, the Hasidic center
on the West Coast, and expressed
the belief that Hasidism was "a
show or a Friday night singalong."
He said there was "enough false-
hood and hypocrisy within our
modern-day mini-Judaism without
trying to extend the field of cor-
ruption into Hasidism." He as-
serted that the basic appeal of the
Hasidic movement "to Jews of all
ages has been its honesty, sincer-
ity and integrity" and that "the
success of Chabad House in attract-
ing modern-day students, profes-
sors and professional people is
proof of this."

Bill Introduced to Stem
Mounting Car Mishaps

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Traffic
violations were the subject of an
angry exchange in the Knesset be-
tween Transport Minister Shimon
Peres and Uri Avneri representing
the New Left Haolam Hazeh fac-
tion.
Avneri, who is anti-establishment
on virtually every issue, opposed a
bill introduced by Peres providing
stiffer penalties for traffic offend-
ers.
The transport minister claimed
that Avneri was issued 105 traffic
summonses in a single year and
that only his parliamentary immu-
nity protected him from prosecu-
tion.
Avneri demanded that the Knes-
set speaker publish a complete
list of traffic offenses committed
by all Knesset members.
Peres hopes his new bill will
stem the rising toll of highway
fatalities- and injuries. It would
empower police officers to suspend
the driver's license of an offender
for 30 days pending trial and would
make it mandatory for the courts
to revoke the licenses, of periodic
offenders and persons involved in
serious traffic violations.
Punishment would be most se-
vere for offenses committed with
stolen vehicles. Minor traffic vio-
lations would be punishable with
suspended license revocations.

Bonn President Notes
Peace Hopes to Kollek

JERUSALEM (JTA) — President
Gustav Heinemann of the West
German Federal Republic ex-
pressed hopes for a lasting peace
in the Middle East in a letter to
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem.
Dr. Heinemann's letter was in
acknowledgment of an olive tree
sapling the Jerusalem Mayor sent
him last month as a gift.
The German leader expressed
the hope that after the terrible
suffering caused by the ongoing
Middle East conflict, solutions
would be found that could offer
assurances of a just and lasting
peace, followed by conciliation
between the present enemies.
He observed that "the sapling,
once it has taken root, will be a
token of the progress in the rela-
tions between Federal Germany
and the state of Israel."
