on Intermarriage
Irks Schindler

Jewish leader's call for the
elimination from leadership
roles in Jewish life of all
persons who married out of
their faith was assailed last
month by the head of
American Reform Judaism
as "an inquisition that has
no place in an open, free and
pluralistic Jewish commu-
According to Rabbi Ale-
xander M. Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations (UAHC), "One can
oppose intermarriage and
seek to mitigate its spread'
without pillorying the in-
termarried. Jewish life has
no need of witch-hunts."
Rabbi Schindler made the
remark at the dedication of
the Kivie Kaplan Center,
named for the late Reform
Jewish leader who also
served as board chairman of
the National Association for
the Advancement of
Colored People. The build-
ing will serve as a confer-
ence center for the UAHC's
