Teen Panel Assails Inadequate
Education as No. .1 Complaint

The adult community came in
for reproof last week when eight
young panelists had their say at
the Jewish Community Council
Delegate Assembly, in the Jewish
Center.
After they had described the
activities and goals of their respec-
tive organizations, moderator
Stanley Frankel gave the students
free rein to comment - on aspects
of community life that—in their
own words—"turn us off."
From groups-with widely differ-
ing ideologies, the panelists never-
theless agreed that the highest
priority must go to education. Sev-
eral felt that what is now being
offered through the communal
school system is woefully . inade-
quate to meet contemporary needs
and that insufficient attention is
paid to Israel in the Hebrew school
curriculum. _'
_ David Reed, a member of United
Synagogue Youth (Conservative) -
and a product of Hillel Day School,
placed education at the head of
USY's goals.

"We see the Jewish people be-
ing annihilated in three places," -
he said: Israel, with physical

annihilation by her neighbors;
the Jews of the Soviet Union,
with spiritual annihilation by the
Russian government; and Amer-
ican Jewry, with "self-analidia-
tion through ignorance." -
The goal of Jewish educators in
this country, said David, should be
to convey "the beauty of ethical
Judaism, not the _materialistic
facade." -
Laurel Brainin of Et-Gar, a politi-
cal action and education group
concerned with Israel and Soviet
Jewry, commented that in her
temple religious school; "I get a
huge shovelful Of how to worship
God, but they don't mention how to
live in the world today."
Mark Plonskier, a member of
National Council of Synagogue
Youth (Orthodox), who spoke up
for the yeshiva day school and its
role in instilling "Jewish feeling"
through the Orthodox philosophy,

said NCSY members learn that
"Judaism has something to say
about contemporary issues, such as
"the so-called new morality. Juda-
ism isn't all Israel, or all Soviet
Jewry. It has many facets," he
said.
From the other end of the reli-
gion.. spectricm, Leonard Felder
agree& Leonard, a member of
illicidgin State Temple Youth,
ingisabeil.that merry "wants M
stertladtbg Judaism back late
iteturs. Judakni," especially hu-
miliate in est:tate min-
nandties where Jewish youth
need the contacts MIT can
ether. -
He called Bar Mitzva 'a gim-
mick" and said youth are 'turned
off by organized religion" when the
synagogue fails to offer "first-class

material."
Even Michael Levy, of Habonim
Labor Zionist Youth, said his secu-
lar movement based its position
supporting the lettuce boycott on
a talmudic principle that the prod-
uce of the oppressed worker is
not to be considered fit and kosher
for any public or private consump-
tion.
Like Laurel, Barbara Siegel of
Hashahar felt that curricula on
Israel are sorely lacking in the
Hebrew schools. "I know," she
said, "because I've been going for
13 years."
Barbara, whose Zionist-oriented
group is under the auspices of
Hadassah, contends that teachers
brought from Israel are not pro-
viding material on Israel and, in
fact, "they can't always relate to
the American child."
She complained further that
Hebrew school studies get
bogged down with repetition.
"Every year, we're taught the
past tense. Repent, repeat, re-
peat. They haven't even— gotten
to the future yet!"
David Walt of the Bnai Brith
Youth Organization, who said be
had the "normal Jewish education
—I quit after Bar Mitzva," de-
scribed Judaism as "a beautiful
thing—I take out of it little parts
that are meaningful to me, and -I
become my own kind of Jew.
Every young Jew should be able
to do this."
The problem of Jewish educa-
tion, said DaVid, is "more basic
than a Hebrew education system.
It reverts to the parents."
The influence of parents was
emphasized by other panelists.
Ilona Wolfson of Hashomer Hat-
zair, Socialist Zionist youth, com-
mented: "You can't make a Jew
by sending him to Hebrew school."
Barbara assailed a certain dou-
ble standard among parents who
send their children to school to
learn about Jewish customs, yet
refuse to back up whit:the young-
sters learn with Eiractices in the
home.
"What irks, me," she added, "is
to see parents, drop off their child

at a rally and then take off."
Rallies were a sore point with.
some of the panelists. Laurel
conceded that adequate press
coverage was the achieved goal
of a youth-appeared demonstra-
Um in Kennedy Square Dec. 23,
but she complained that few
adults showed their solidarity
with the young people, who were
Protesting against the Leningrad

"Demonstratiens are not just for
kids," said Laurel, whose organi-
zations; FA-Gar, combat s--Arab
propaganda a several fronts. "It
isn't enough to say that adults give
money and write letters; and Id&
demcastrate: We give money and
write letters too."
