Birmingham Temple Defends Stone Talk,
Demands Apology from -Rabbis' Commission

Birmingham Temple and
its rabbi, Sherwin Wine,
made public a reply to the
charges contained in a mes-
sage from the Rabbinical
Commission of the Jewish
Community Council assail-
ing them for inviting a PLO
defender, I. F. Stone, to the
temple's lecture platform.
The Birmingham 'Tem-
ple, in a communication
over the signatures of Rabbi
Wine and President Lynne
Silverberg, replied to the
statement of the JCC Rab-
binical Commission
president, Rabbi Israel
Halpern, which appeared in
The Jewish News issue of
June 22. The reply to Rabbi
Halpern, demanding an
apology, is dated June 27. A
copy of it was sent to The
Jewish News by Rabbi Wine
on June 29. The Wine-
Silverberg reply to Rabbi
Halpern in behalf of Bir-
mingham Temple follows:

President's Conference Adopts
Consensus Statement on Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations
adopted a five-point consen-
sus last week following a
four-hour policy meeting at
which Theodore R. Mann,
chairman, reported on the
President's delegation
which visited Israel earlier
this month.
While no agreement was
reached on Alon Moreh, the
controversial Gush
Emunim settlement near
Nablus on the West Bank,
the President's Conference
members did reach agree-
ment that:
Jewish settlements in

Jerusalem is indivisible
and must remain so
under Israeli sovereignty
as the eternal capital of
the Jewish state; the
United States should

Organization. The
President's Conference
holds the conviction that
Israel will carry out its
commitments under the

Explains Policies
on U.S. Tour
Rabbi Claims
NEW YORK (JTA) —
Harry Hurwitz, Premier Gradual Erosion
Menahem Begin's adviser of Rabbinate
on external information has

begun a tour across the
United States in which he
will meet with representa-
tives of the American media
in an effort to explain the
policies of the Begin gov-
ernment, some of which
have aroused sharp criti-
cism in the general media
and puzzlement and con-
troversy among American
Jews.
Speaking with members
of the Jewish media in New
York at a press conference
at the Israeli Consulate
here, Hurwitz said that the
main message he carries
with him is that "the terms
of the peace agreement be-
tween Israel and Egypt are
working satisfactorily," and
that the process of normali-
zation between the two
countries is moving quicker
than anticipated.

FALLSBURG, N.Y.,
Rabbi Abraham B.
(JTA)
Hecht, president of the
Rabbinical Alliance of
America, told the annual
convention of the Orthodox
rabbinical group here last
week that there has been "a
gradual and ultimately de-
vastating erosion in the im-
portance of the Orthodox
rabbinate."
Rabbi Hecht, who was re-
cently elected to a third
term, said there had been an
erosion process underway in
the American Jewish com-
munity and attributed it to
the "almost total emphasis"
on Israel during the past de-
cade. He said "American
synagogues have been so
busy concerning themselves
with Israel that they have
neglected the needs of the
local Jewish community."

general communities on the
Jerusalem issue were dis-
cussed in some detail and a
kit of materials, compiled
by the President's Confer-
ence, was distributed to the
32 affiliated national
Jewish religious and secu-
lar organizations that make
up the Conference.

What can

choose to muzzle opponents
of the government. They do
not confuse honest dis-
agreement with treason.
"We believe that you owe
an apology to I.F. Stone and
to the Birmingham Temple
for your intermperate ac-
, <
tion. Forbidding dissent is a
dangerous precedent, which
does you little honor.
"The Birmingham Tem-
ple will continue to serve
the Jewish community by-'
providing a forum for mans
loyal Jewish voices that
would not otherwise be
heard."
As of Monday afternoon
Rabbi Halpern said he had
not yet received the letter.
Read to him by The Jewish
News, he said the Rabbini-
cal commission will no
doubt stand by its original
rebuke to anyone giving a
platform to enemies of Is-
rael.
Prior to the receipt of the
letter from Rabbi Wine ac-
companying a copy of his
temple's letter to Rabbi
Halpern, The Jewish News
also received, by registered
mail, a letter from Mrs. Ann
Kutnick expressing re-
sentment over the manner
in which The Jewish News
treated the I.F. Stone issue
news-wise and editorially.
