Is Synagogue Too Big?
Suburban Rabbi Says No
GREAT NECK. N.Y. (JTA) -
Widespread complaints by Jewish
congregants and critics that pres-
sures for expansion in synagogue
size have produced huge and im-
personal institutions have evoked
from a rabbi of such a congrega-
tion the response that size need
need not mean impersonality and
that it does make possible a wide
variety of programs for congre-
The defense of bigness was made
by Rabbi Jerome K. Davidson of
the 1,500-family Temple Beth-El of
Great Neck, a leading Reform con-
gregation. Writing in his synagogue
Bulletin, Rabbi Davidson cited as
"one of the most frequent corn-
plaints" heard among congregants
that synagogues have - gotten so
big I don't know anyone any-
Asserting he believed that "size
is a copout, an excuse" for non-
participation in synagogue life,
Rabbi Davidson argued that there
was room "on every committee of
our temple for interested -- people
and in the leadership ranks of
every affiliated organization • for
those who cafe enough to serve."
He added that' a feeling on the
part of any congregant of being
"unimportant" or "left out" could
be remedied by "a phone call to
our offices!! He said his synagogue
faces many unfinished tasks "and
those who share in completing
them will always feel they are a
needed part of a close family that
wants to preserve our heritage for
ourselves and our children."
