Bleich, Eugene Borowitz,

Dr. Rackman ex-
pressed the hope that
from the conference a
body would emerge that
would meet periodically
to issue policy statements
and perhaps a journal.
"There is no reason for us
to be so concerned with
ecumenism between
Jews and non-Jews but
not with ecumenism
within the Jewish com-
munity," he declared.
Dr. Rackman asserted
that the Jewish community
must "discover the means of
respecting diversity" so that
it could formulate an action
program that_would win

Rabbi Rackman urged
an immediate halt to this
"in-fighting," which he
said caused "alienation
and a weakening of
Jewish values."

Polarization is also preva-
lent within each movement,
Dr. Rackman observed. He
referred to the "bloodshed"
resulting from disputes
among various Hasidic
sects and the "notorious
feuding" within Agudath
Israel, a group viewed as
monolithic by the non-
Orthodox.
Dr. Rackman scored the
"attitude of certitude that
too many Jews have as-
sumed. Until an attitude of
tolerance to the religious
beliefs of other Jews is de-
veloped," he said, "the
Jewish community will con-
tinue to suffer from internal
strife.
"Tolerance and, indeed,
the encouragement of dif-

"The stress of the
liturgy is not akhdut Yis-
rael (Jewish unity) but
ahavat Yisrael (the love
of all Israel)," he re-
marked, adding, "Diver-
sity must be tempered by
the need for a measure of
unity and consensus that
can come about only
when people respect
each other."

The Jewish community --
Dr. Rackman urged, must
work toward "programs in
the interest of the common
good so that the forces of
polarization can be over-
come. We won't find the an-
swers unless we listen to
each other," he said.

broad communal consensus.
Decrying the "sniping of
Jew against Jew," Dr.
Rackman said: "The au-
thentic Jewish point of view
— the voice of moderation
— must be heard alongside
the voice of extremists in all
camps."
Dr. Rackman, who was
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America and the
New York Board of Rabbis
before assuming his post at
Bar-Ilan five years ago, did
not lay the blame for polari-
zation on any one group.
While conceding that there
was "intolerance and in-
transigence" within Israel's
Orthodox extablishment, he
criticized non-Orthodox
leaders who, he said, had
been "threatening repri-
sals," such as not giving to
UJA or to yeshivot, if their
groups were not granted-
recognition in matters af-
fecting marriage, divorce
and conversion in Israel.
