Rabbinical Leader Urges Congress
to Make Vandalism of Churches and,
Synagogues a Federal Crime

LAKEWOOD, NJ. (JTA) — An
Orthodox rabbinical leader Tues-
day urged Congress to make van-
dalism of synagogues and churches
a federal crime and recommended
that the Justice Department create
a special section to deal with such
vandalism.
Rabbi Louis Bernstein, first vice
president of the Rabbinical Coun-
cil of America, told its midwinter
conference here that physical at-
tacks on religious institutions were
"cutting into the - very fabric of
our society" and that "Society,
therefore, must protect itself lest
it be destroyed in the process."
Calling on Congress and Attor-
ney General John N. Mitchell to
take the "necessary steps," the
spiritual leader of Young Israel of
Windsor Park, Bayside, N.Y., de-
clared it was "obvious" that local
police and security forces were
unable to to "cope" with the prob-
lem without federal cooperation.
Rabbi Bernstein attributed the
vandalism to the "confusion of
young minds who justify their
destructiveness by moral ration-
alization that they are fighting
an unjust establishment and that
houses of worship are xegarded
as being part of that establish-
ment."
Their "acts of violence," he
continued, "weaken the moral and

legal fabric of our democracy and
will inevitably bring a repressive
backlash, which would make life
untenable in our land."
Rabbi Bernstein added that
"Those who seek to destroy have
no blueprint for building," as
"Theirs is the psychology of an-
archy and nihilism" and they "de-
sire to destroy us and bring about
a system of autocratic government,
whether of the right or the left."
Stating that "stern measures by
the highest level of government"
were required to preserve Ameri-
can religious freedom, Rabbi Bern-
stein announced that the Rabbini-
cal Council, which is based in New
York City, would contact New
York State's congressional leaders
regarding appropriate legislation.
