"Jewish community and
continuity today are
threatened by the increas-
ing rate of intermarriage.
The children of these mixed
marriages are in particular
need of the community's at-
tention."
Rotman singled out the
Jewish community center
as the one institution in
American Jewish life that
can best deal with these
problems.
Former U.S. Secretary
of Commerce Philip
Klutznick told the JWB
that the Reagan Adminis-
tration's budget cuts are
self-defeating and that
they are having a serious
impact on the "social wel-
fare and educational fab-
ric" of America.
Klutznick served under
