'Rabbis Have Never Amended
the Divine Laws of the Torah'

/

>

Editor, The JeWish
News.
A statement by the late
Dr. Solomon Zeitlin, on
the controversial ques-
tion of "Who is a Jew - was
._nrinted in "Purely Com-
fltary," of Jan. 14,

Dr. Zeitlin contends
that, "Although the Pen-
tateuch was the basis of
Jewish Law, and was the
constitution of the people,
the sages (of the Second
Jewish Commonwealth)
. did not hestitate to inter-
pret and tmend the pen-
tateuchal
However, the rabbis of
the Second Jewish Com-
monwealth, as well as
those preceding - and fol-
lowing them would never
and have never amended
any of the Penteuchal
Laws.

It is axiomatic • in
traditioal Torah circles
(the circles of the
.Pharisees, the rabbis of
the Second Common-
wealth), that the oral and
written traditions were
given by G-d and are not
man-made.
These G-d-given laws,
according to Torah tradi-
tion (not ultra-Orthodox
tradition) may never be
amended.
It is only rabbinical in-
junction that has at times
been amended, but the
G-d-given Pentateuch
has remained untouched.

Editor, The. Jewish
News:
This letter is a response
to an article published in
the Detroit Jewish News
on Sept. 24, 1976, entitled
"Writer Finds Unusual
Communities, Practices
in Visits to Synagogues of
Istanbul and Rome".
To deliberately or un-
knowingly distort reality
is bad journalism and
serves no purpose. Appa-
rently Mr. Siegel knows
very little about the
'Jewish communities in
Istanbul or Rome, but
what is worse has made
no decent effort to be
knowledgeable.
To take the case of Is-
tanbul, Turkey: Contrary
to what he says in his ar-
ticle the Jewish commun-
ity there is very active
and outgoing and hospit-
able; he apparently didn't
know how to find them
out.
He 'should have gotten
