Orthodox Panel to Combat Intermarriage,
Dr. Lamm Decries Intolerance of Diversity

FALLSBURG, N.Y.
(JTA) — The formation of a
national commission on
Jewish survival headed by
scholars, educators and
rabbis to combat assimila-
tion and intermarriage was
announced last week by
Rabbi Bernard Rosenzweig,
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America, at the
43rd annual convention of
the Orthodox group at the
Pineview Hotel here.
"Intermarriage
has
catastrophic
reached
levels," he said. "In many
communities the rate ex-
ceeds 50 percent. If this
trend is not reversed, the
whole fabric of Jewish
communal structure will
suffer irreparable damage.
The problem of intermar-
riage among our college
youth is particularly severe
and constitutes a serious
threat to Jewish corn-

munities and to the survival
of traditional Judaism."
The commission will seek
to stimulate action within
and outside the synagogue.
The commission also plans a
counselling service for col-
lege students and adults,
and a seminar and lecture
series. _
He said "a monistic ap-
proach within Orthodoxy
which imposes a
homogenized sameness in
thought and practice is both
religiously inauthentic and
socially destructive. It has
the virtue of consistency but
it lacks a communal con-
science. Unity is confused
with uniformity and a divi-
sive intolerance is rampant
within our ranks."
"Diversity within the
discipline of Jewish law,"
Lamm explained, "is a re-
flection of the dynamics of
our faith. The sages of the
Talmud offered varying
opinions but a harmonious
unity emerged to guide
Jewish practice. In
philosophic thought a
variety of systems
coexisted, each reflecting
one of the 70 faces of the To-
rah. A mutual respect of
each other's singularity in
interpretation and style
generally prevailed."
Lamm also said "one can
even respect the dissenting
views of the Satmar
Hasidim in their anti-
Zionism but one must ut-
terly reject their going pub-
lic, thereby giving
encouragement and
strength to the enemies of
our people. One can allow
for the good intentions and

integrity of the so-called
`doves' in Israel who argue
for greater concessions to
the Arabs but it is irrespon-
sible and indefensible to ex-
press these views through
the columns of the anti-
Zionist press.
"Within
Orthodoxy,
pluralism is to be welcomed
as a healthy phenomenon. A
narrow authoritarianism
which assigns pejorative
labels to contrary views
must be resisted as totally

destructive:"

also
Rosenzweig
criticized those Reform rab-
bis who solemnize inter-
marriages. "We must not
become tolerant of this can-
cerous growth which can
only destroy Jewish ranks,"
he declared.
Rosenzweig also decried
the recently announced
campaign of Reform
Judaism to actively seek
converts from unaffiliated
Christians. "This is an ir-
responsible and shocking
endeavor which can only
evoke the enmity of the
Christian world toward
Jews," he said.
"It took several decades of
interfaith contact to con-
vince both Catholic- and
Protestant ranks to suspend
their missionary efforts
among Jews. We persuaded
them that such acts offend
us, deeply. Now for Reform
Judaism to initiate a mis-
sionizing campaign among
Christians is the height of
indiscretion and is calcu-

lated to cause much harm.
No one group in Jewish life
has a right to take steps
which can adversely affect
the entire American Jewish
community," he said.
Dr. Norman Lamm,
president of Yeshiva Uni-
versity, decried the "in-
tolerant fragmentization
which endangers the con-
tinued vitality and creativ-
ity of the Orthodox Jewish
community in the United
States."
At the same session,
Julius Berman, president of
the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America, declared "there
are urgent immediate prob-
lems facing the Orthodox
Jewish world which require
the cooperation of all
groups, regardless of their
differing ideologies and
emphases, if we are to sur-
vive the dangers which
threaten us all. The com-
petitive intolerance and di-
visive parochialism within
Orthodoxy drain our
strength and dilute our ef-
fectiveness.
"The common enemy is
secularism and religious
ignorance, and it is impera-
tive that we find a common
ground on which to cooper-
ate in the preservation of
our Torah way of life," he
said.
The Orthodox rabbis'
body also denounced Re-
form Jewish leaders for
sponsoring- combined
synagogue-church services.

Selective Boycott
on Kosher Food
Asked By Rabbi '

FALLSBURG, N.Y.
(JTA) — A "selected
boycott" of the kosher food
market was urged by Rabbi
Bernard Rosenzweig,
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America. He de-
nounced "the profiteering
which exploits Jewish con-
sumers," at the 43rd annual
convention of Orthodox
rabbis:
"The prices of kosher
foods, particularly prior to
Jewish holidays, is uncons-
cionable," he said. "The
ensurement of kashrut in
itself cannot account for
such astronomical prices
which reflects greed with-
out conscience. Young
couples struggle under the
impact of such exploitation
and undoubtedly as a result,
find themselves unable to
maintain their religious ob- r
servance."
"I suggest," Rosenzweig
added, "that organized
Jewish communities under-
take selected boycotts to
force legislation of unjusti-
fiably high prices. There is
ample Talmudic precedence
for such action. In the long
run, such exorbitant pricing
will drive marginal Jews
away from kashrut and
therefore, be most hurtful to
the entire kashrut indus-
1.
try."
