phenomenon in the U.S.,
Rabbi Rudin said:
"In the last decade more
than 2,000 new religious
movements have appeared
in the United States, per-
haps the greatest prolifera-
tion of such groups in the
nation's history. Many are
led by charismatic leaders,
authoritarian at best, to-
talitarian at worst, who
often present themselves
and are accepted by their
followers as - messianic

Rabbi A. James Rudin,
the American Jewish
Committee's assistant na-
tional director of interreli-
gious affairs and an expert
on cults, was in Detroit last
week for an interreligious
dialogue.

and/or divine figures.
"People seldom join
cults for ideological or
theological reasons.
Practically all seek to
overcome a sense of es-
trangement and loneli-
ness. Cult leaders offer
unconditional love and
acceptance within caring
communities.
"The psychic and physical
price paid is constantly es-
calated. Drop out of school
or work; leave your family
and move to the commu-
nity's building or settle-
ment; allow the cult to dic-
tate work assignments,
diet, sleep and sexual
habits; cede to a leader total
authority to grant forgive-
ness and grace, define sin,
repentance and salvation,
and finally decide what is
true and what is false.
"A cult member is never
physically alone, intellec-
tually in doubt, or emotion-
ally troubled. He or she sur-
renders critical faculties,
previous belief systems and
sometimes, as in Guyana,
his or her life — all for the
leader.
"The AJCommittee has
long been concerned with
the challenge of the cults
and their attraction for a
significant number of Jews,
mostly between the ages of
18 and 30. In 1976, it pub-
lished a content analysis of
the basic teaching book of
Sun Myung Moon's Unifica-
tion Church. Prepared by
the Interreligious Affairs
Department, this study
documented the group's bla-
tant anti-Semitism."
