BY BEN GALLOB
Participants in a first con-
ference of leaders of
Mexican-Americans and
American Jews agreed that,
while the two groups had
much in common in their
striving for the goals of
equality, a key barrier to
the cooperation they needed
to help each other reach
that goal was the immense
ignorance of each group
about the other.
The conclave, which
brought together religious,
civic and political leaders
from every major Texas
city, was co-sponsored by
Archbishop Patrick Flores
of San Antonio, chairman of
the Catholic Church's His-
panic Committee; and
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum,
American Jewish Commit-
tee international relations
director.

ferences — of the two com-
munities.
Flores, born into a Texas
migrant family, overcoming
extraordinary obstacles to
achieve his leadership posi-
tion, told the conference
that "if we are going to have
an impact on future genera-
tions, we can no longer
march ahead or behind each
other, but we must go on to-
gether."
Rabbi A. James Rudin,
AJCommittee interreli-
gious affairs director, ex-
plained that "demography
and geography have kept
American Jews and
Mexican-Americans apart.
We have been passing like
ships in the night." How-
ever, he added, both groups
have been victimized "by
distorted facts of culture,
stereotypes, caricatures and
jokes."

The conference was held
in February in alternate
sessions at the community
halls of San Antonio's As-
sumption Seminary and
Temple Beth-El. Financial
support was provided by
Texans from the Jewish and
Mexican-American com-
munities and the Nathan
Appleman Institute for the
Advancement of
Christian-Jewish Under-
standing.
The participants agreed
that the conference had led
to new friendships and to
fresh understanding of the
problems, goals and shared
interests — as well as dif-

Tanenbaum conceded
that the two communities
were not in harmony on
some issues, such as em-
ployment, education and
executive-suite exclusion.
He added that he felt a deep
sense of community with
Mexican-Americans be-
cause "my people have been
on that route since the early
days of their entry to this
country until today."

The archbishop and the
AJCommittee leaders
agreed to create a joint
steering committee to plan
further conferences and
cooperative projects.
