Conservatives Hit Lack of Religious Liberty

KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
(JTA) — The lack of "religi-
ous freedom in Israel" with
its refusal to recognize the

Conservative and Reform
movements was assailed by

Rabbi Stanley S.

Rabinowitz in his presiden-
tial address to the 600 dele-
gates attending the 78th
annual convention of the
Rabbinical Assembly.
In a strong attack on the
concept that "Orthodoxy is
synonymous with religion
and with Halakha,"
Rabinowitz called on the
1,000-member Conserva-
tive rabbinical association
to adopt a resolution chal-
lenging the idea that
Judaism in Israel "is to be
supervised and adminis-

13 RUNNING FOR

RE-ELECTION

'

Novick, chairman of the na-
tional executive committee -
and member of the adminis-
trative board of the Zionist
Organization of America,
has announced his candi-
dacy to succeed Dr. Joseph
P. Sternstein as president of
the ZOA.
Novick says he has sup-
port from Sternstein, past
presidents and other ZOA ,
leaders for the position.
An officer and board
member of the United
Jewish Federation of
Pittsburgh, Novick was one
of the founders of the Na-
tional Young Leadership
Cabinet of the United
Jewish Appeal.

That's our simple no-nonsense sales policy at Tamaroff
Buick-Ope'-Honda. And we mean to stick to it with each
and every customer. No song-and-dance. No double-talk.
No run-around. Just "straight-talk" and really "down-
to-earth" prices on Buicks, Opels and Hondas. You get
the car you want at the price we quoted. And, you know,
it must be working because we're the Buick
sales leader in this area.

We lease all makes and models.

tered only by the Orthodox
rabbinate."
The "presumptuous as-
sumption that Orthodoxy is
the only ligitimate form of
Judaism," Rabinowitz
further stated "is the sin of
Orthodoxy," and it must be
challenged.
Though he said he finds
expressions of criticism of
Israel against his grain,
Rabinowitz declared: "It is
because we are uncondi-
tionally committed to the
security and well being of
the state of Israel that we
have a duty to address the
insecurities of non-
Orthodox Judaism in Israel.
Orthodox people should be
just as disturbed as we are
about religious coercion in
Israel, or lack of religious
freedom in Israel. Indeed,
some few are, but painfully
few."
The Orthodox, he added,
"are quite consistent in re-
jecting us, and so are we in
reaching our hand out to
them. In refusing to make
adjustments to the contem-
porary challenge, they run
the risk of becoming the
new Karaites. We shall con-
tinue in our way, and they
shall continue in theirs, and
let Eliyahu resolve."
In an unprecedented ac-
tion, the Rabbinical Assem-
bly at its opening banquet
adopted a resolution
criticizing the Carter Ad-
ministration for "unfairly
painting Israel as being in-

transigent and unwilling to
accept the risks for peace."
The resolution "urged the
Administration to focus its
energies on bringing other
Arab states to the peace
table and pressing them to
take a reasonable attitude
of compromise. We sin-
cerely hope the U.S. will
seek for Israel the open and
fair negotiating process
that it would demand for it-
self."

Schindler Hits
Jewish Militants

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations de-
nounced a plan by a "milit-
ant" Jewish group to harass
Egyptian diplomats in New
York.
The group, calling itself
the Jewish Committee for
Concern, said it planned to
harass the Egyptians in
order to disrupt
American-Egyptian rela-
tions.
Rabbi Alexander M.
Schindler, chairman of the
Presidents Conference, said
that the group's plan to
harass the Egyptians "will
serve no useful purpose. It
certainly will not advance
the cause of peace. All re-
sponsible members of the
American Jewish commun-
ity will surely join me in

condemning such ac-
tivities."

SENATOR COOPER ON GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRACY:

COMMENTS'

ON THE MOST POWERFUL MEN IN THE LEGISLATURE:
"Daniel S. Cooper, the Senator from Oak Park, makes the list
because a lot of people think he's the smartest, most persuasive
guy in the legislature."

"Cooper is the conscience of the Senate," said one admiring
senator. "When Danny speaks the rest of us listen . .. that
sentiment is widespread, and you certainly can't say that about
many others in the Legislature."
