THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Before undertaking any
design weigh the story of
thy action with the danger
of the attempt. If the glory

outweigh the danger it is
cowardice to neglect it; if
the danger exceed the glory,
it is rashness to attempt it;

if the balances stand poised,
let thine own genius cast
them.

Orthodox Groups to Close Gap

NEW YORK — Harold
M. Jacobs, president of the
National Council of Young
Israel (NCYI), has re-
sponded to the call by
Dr. Norman Lamm of
Yeshiva University for a
merger between NCYI and
the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America (UOJCA).
"NCYI continues to stand
ready to work in close coop-
eration with the UOJCA in
the many new areas of need
within the Jewish commu-
nity," Jacobs said. The
NCYI leader noted that,
"our previous attempts at
cooperation with the
UOJCA in areas such as
aliya have failed. Thus,
while Dr. Lamm's sugges-
tion is made with the best of
intentions, we should not
try to bring the (two groups)

ADL Helps
in Conviction
of Anti-Semite

NEW YORK — A
Swedish government pro-
secutor has thanked the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith (ADI•) for sup-
plying information which
helped convict an anti-
Semitic agitator in that
country.
Torsten Jonsson's pros-
ecution of Ditlieb Felderer,
which was largely based on
information supplied by the
ADL, led to Felderer's con-
viction last month. The
Swede was sentenced to 10
months in jail for dis-
seminating anti-Semitic
hate materials.

together before it has been
demonstrated, on even a
small scale, that such a
merger could be successful."
The NCYI leader cited
"serious differences be-
tween the guiding princi-
ples of (his) movement and
the religious standards in
many synagogues which be-
long to the UOJCA, as well
as the union's de facto
recognition of non-
Orthodox religious legiti-
macy in the Jewish commu-
nity through its member-
ship in the Synagogue
Council of America.
"Another significant
obstacle to closer coop-
eration is the persistent
effort of the UOJCA, de-
spite our vigorous pro-
tests, to recruit NCYI
synagogues away from
our movement, and -to
raid (our) youth groups
for their own youth pro-
gram. Such acts of organ-
izational provocation
make it impossible to es-
tablish a relationship of
trust which is the neces-
sary prerequisite for
closer ties between the
two organizations.
"Nevertheless," Jacobs
• concluded, "unity and
greater cooperation remain
worthwhile goals within the
Orthodox community. Not
only do we stand ready to
work, in good faith, with the
UOJCA, but we also call
upon the several Orthodox
rabbinical organizations,
such as the Rabbinical
Council of. America, the
Rabbinical Alliance, and
the Agudas Harabonon,
likewise to explore the pos-

sibility of merger so that the
Orthodox community could
speak with a single, united
voice."
