be justified—all of you were
for the survival of Judaism,
but only two voted against
intermarriage?
PINCHAS: Although intel-
lectually I know that inter-
marriage threatents Jewish
survival, emotionally it is

hard to accept being against
it. Who can say whether or
not I might meet a gentile
girl, fall in love and get mar-
ried?
I also said that I thought
Judaism should survive—but
I don't know if I could really
tell you why. I know that cer-
tain institutions such as ex-
ploitation and slavery have
no right to exist.
So as a Jew it is not enough
to say that Judaism should
survive because we are Jew-
ish. I think that there has to
be some sort of moral, cul-
tural justification.
YEHUDAH: In my opin-
ion, the justification for be-
ing Jewish is not anti-Semit-
ism and not because it is
something natural to us.
The justification for being
Jewish is constant study of
your J u d a i s m. It is not

within a generally apathetic
and sometimes hostile envi-
ronment, we can never hope
to "win".
MEIR: I think that what-
ever faults may exist in the
education of the Zionist youth
movements, they provide a
very important element of
character education: Jewish
Pride. We are not only Jew-
ish by birth, but also out of
consciousness.
The Zionist youth move-
ments strengthen the ties of
young Jews with the Jewish
Nation and with the place
where the rebirth of our
people is taking place, Israel.
Perhaps it is fitting to add
that at the end of our sikha
a short goodby party was
held for two members of the
kvutza (group) who are go-
ing to Israel.

ing their Jewish identity, Bnai

dated edition of "Careers in

Defamation League of Bnai
B'rith.
Detailing opportunities in
social planning, fund raising,
research and other aspects of
community relations p r o -
graming, Miss Ianiello ana-
lyzes activities and job open-
ings in Jewish community
relations agencies and reports
on working conditions, finan-

special BBCCS series of oc-
cupational briefs on Jewish
communal service. Others re-
port on career opportunities

enough to grow up in a
"Jewish" home and to be a
passive Jew. We must look
toward our past because I
think what makes us a peo-
ple is our collective memory.
MEIR: Do you really feel
that the overwhelming ma-
jority of you would not deny
your Jewishness in the face
of persecution?
MIKE: I was the one who
answered yes to the last
question. My Jewishness is
something internal and is not
strengthened by outside as-
sertiveness. I am not the type
that walks around with a
giant 'Jewish star around my
neck shouting: "I am a Jew!"
The Jews have survived
2,000 years of Galut (Diaspo-

Nominations are open to

any Jewish youth group in
the community and should be
submitted to Council no later
than April 5. Nominations
should include a detailed
description of the group's
activities.
The purpose of the award
is to call attention to the
many groups in the commu-
nity who are engaged in a
wide variety of constructive
activities but receive little
recognition for their efforts.
In the past,' award-winning
activities have included tu-
torial programs, work with
the aged and handicaped,
Holocaust programs and ef-
forts on behalf of Israel and
Soviet Jewry.
Council's youth award com-
mittee, under the chairman-
ship of Mrs. Bertha Brotman,
will review all nominations
and announce their selections
at the May assembly.

Jews for Jesus
Activist Tells Story

Moishe Rosen, a born Jew
who was ordained a Baptist
minister and now is spokes-
man for the Jews for Jesus
movement, relates his exper-
iences in the newly published
"Jews for Jesus," a chroni-
cle of the controversial move-
ment that insists that "Jew-
ishness" can be maintained
despite a belief in Jesus.
Rosen, 41, has practiced
his brand of confrontation
evangelism in San Francisco
among the counter-culture, in-
cluding Jews. His "conver-
sion to the Le.rd," as he puts
it, took place in 1953.

"Mind is the great lever of
all things; human thought is
the process by which human
ends are ultimately an-
swered."
