In 1976, an anonymous
statement assailing Or-
thodox Jews involved in
highly-publicized criminal
activities was circulated
among Yeshiva University
students and others in the
Orthodox community, ac-
cording to the report on the
problem of Jewish ethics in
the current issue of "Pre-
sent Tense," by Perry Davis,
an official of Yosher, the
Jewish ethics committee.
Davis contends that a

Honorary Chairman

raised by the exposures
would be that "there is no
Jewish crime wave." A
socio-economic analysis
"would reveal only a
meager amount of crime"
among Orthodox Jews. But
from a Jewish religious law
perspective, he added, a
"most vexing problem
arises. How could such
things happen? What can be
done?"
While making it clear
that self-policing remains
an unsolved problem, Davis
wrote that "If Jewish his-
tory is to serve asa guide to
solving current ethical di-
lemmas, self-policing is
only a first step. Following
past practice, the Jewish
community should now con-
front and challenge ac-
tivities that fall short of
criminal but are morally
repugnant, for example,
slander, unsavory business
practices and racism."
One problem, Davis
wrote, 'is that many
Jews are still afraid of
'the outsider' — the
shadowy figure that rep-
resents the non-Jew sit-
ting in judgement. While
revelations of Jewish
corruption led to numer-
ous public statements,
none were as noteworthy
as private expressions of
fear."
He declared that "if that
paralysis" wore off, "the
truly important response"
will follow. "by word of
mouth," in these "clear and
simple terms: the Jewish
criminal threatens the
moral survival of the
Jewish community. His ac-
tions will not be condoned."
Yosher's programs deal-
ing with kashrut and educa-
tion are important but ap-
peared unlikely to have any
immediate effect on the
basic problem of criminal
behavior -which spurred
formation of the two-year-
old organization.
Davis disagreed with a
JTA suggestion that teach-
ing midos (ethics) in
yeshivot was not likely to

have any immediate impact
on the problem. He pointed
out that such teaching at
the high school level in
yeshivot was a program
aimed at Jewish youth soon
to become adults.

Davis said Yosher has
discussed the problem of
,wider availability of
ethics courses in day
schools with the Board of
Jewish Education and
Torah Umesorah, the
Society for Hebrew Day
Schools. But the barriers
to creation of an effective
climate of Jewish opposi-
tion to and rejection of

Jewish malefactors are
formidable. In this area,
Yosher is seeking to en-
list the help of religious
courts.
One of the barriers is that
Halakha bars mention pub-
licly of the names of Jewish
suspects. Davis said that be-
fore he added the names of
Bernard Bergman and
Eugene Hollander to his
"Present Tense" report, he
asked an Orthodox rabbi if
this was permissible and
that he was told that, in
view of the widespread pub-
licity about the two men in
the general media, it was
permissible.
