Synagogue Council Leader Rabbi Lelyveld Rejects
Holding Dialogue With Palestine Liberation Org.

NEW YORK ( JTA) —
There can be no dialogue
with the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization as long as
it holds to its goal of destroy-
ing Israel, Rabbi Arthur J.
Lelyveld declared at his in-
stallation as president of
the Synagogue Council of
America.

"I have reservations
about calls to dialogue with
the PLO," he said at a cere-
mony at Lincoln Square
Synagogue following a
meeting of the Council
Plenum last week. "I
learned in Mississippi there
are some limitations to the
possibility of dialogue. You
cannot dialogue with a per-
son who has a knife at your
throat."
Lelyveld went to Missis-
sippi in 1964 as part of a
team of Cleveland clergy for
service as a minister-
counselor in that summer's
voter registration effort.
During that stay he was
badly beaten by seg-
regationists. In 1965, he
received an award "for
distinguished service to
the NAACP and the
cause of freedom." He is a
board member of the
Martin Luther King Cen-
ter for Social Change.

The rabbi suggested "four
preparatory steps" to pre-
vent an escalation of con-
flicts between American
black and Jewish com-
munities: ". . stop
generalizing about 'leaders'
or giving that designation
to any one who is quoted in
relation to the current rup-
ture;_ analyze the areas of
difference, separating our
problems into manageable
blocks rather than mixing
affirmative action concerns
into the complex difficulties
of the quest for peace in the
Middle East; seek to under-
stand each other's special
point of view, and avoid per-
jorative statements or ef-
forts to win 'debating
points.' "
Harsh things have been
said these last weeks by
both blacks and Jews,
Lelyveld said. "I felt hurt at
the widely publicized
statement that what Jews

did to aid the black cause in
the civil rights struggle of
the 60s they did in their own
self-interest. I reject this al-
legation as untrue."
Lelyveld is senior rabbi of
Fairmount Temple, Cleve-
land. He is a past president
of the American Jewish
Congress and the Central
Conference of American
Rabbis and was national di-
rector of the Bnai Brith
Hillel Foundation. He suc-
ceeds Rabbi Saul I. Teplitz,
Woodmere, N.Y., who was
installed as honorary
president.

Judaism commands us to
exercise compassion, to
clothe the naked, to feed
the hungry, to care for the
sick, the widow and the
fatherless, and to console
mourners.
