LETTER _BOX

Young Worshiper Finds
Prayerbooks Fine as Is

Editor, The Jewish News:
I would -like to remind - Rabbi
(Jonas) Goldberg (letterbox Oct.
13) that there are many young
people like myself who find our
• rayerbooks inspiring, meaningful,
relevant texts for our times. These
young people have been reared in
homes which have treasured the
contents of these books; they un-
derstand them in the original He-
brew; - and they value them for
the link that they are between our
people's past and, hopefully, its
future.
Why are rabbis searching so
feverishly to capture the fickle at-
tention of young people who were
reared in Jewish deserts, who come
barren and empty and critical to
the synagogue—if at all—and who
seek to be "turned on" by some-
thing "different?"
Let us not distort our tradition
by rushing to attract this element
which is not searching for mean-
ingful religion, but rather for mo-
mentary diversion.

Rally Participant Decries
'Miniscule' Attendance

Editor, The Jewish News:

I attended the Oct. 8 rally at
Kennedy Square in support , of
Soviet Jewry.
The various speakers on the pro-
gram clearly discussed the Rus-
sian oppression of their Jewish
citizens, an issue which needs all
of the exposure that it can get.
Nonetheless, I was both disap-
pointed and appalled at the min-
iscule turnout on the part of the
local Jewish community, which
was embarrassingly reported as
150 persons. I can only feel that
this small representation of people
served to minimize the tragedy
that has befallen our brethren in
