Judge Avern Cohn

Judge Avern L. Cohn was re-
elected chairman of the Jewish
Welfare Federation's Executive
Committee at its recent meeting.
A former president of Federa-

tion, Judge Cohn was vice chair-
man of the Allied Jewish Cam-
paign and a leader of the Attor-
neys Section of the Campaign's
Professional Service Division. He
has served as treasurer of Federa-
tion and as chairman of the JWF
National and Community Rela-
tions Agencies budgeting and
planning division.
Judge Cohn is a past vice
president and executive commit-
tee member of the Jewish Com-
munity Council and is on the
boards of United Jewish Charities
and the Fresh Air Society.
Among his local civic duties,
Judge Cohn has served as director
of the Detroit Bar Association and
as chairman of the Michigan Civil
Rights Commission and the De-
troit Board of Police Commission-
ers.
Newly elected members of Fed-
eration's Executive Committee
include Peter Alter and Stuart E.
Hertzberg.

Judge rules against nativity scene

The city of Birmingham will be
without a nativity scene in front
of As city hall this holiday season
as a result of a federal judge's rul-
ing against the display.
Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled
last week that the nativity scene
was religious in nature and vio-
lated the principle of separation of
church and state.
The ruling came down on the
side of the American Civil Liber-
ties Union, which opposed the
erection of the display.
Reacting to the judge's decision,
Rev. James Lyons, executive di-
rector of the Ecumenical Institute
for Jewish-Christian Studies said,
"I support Judge Taylor's ruling.
For me, religion is an extremely
important part of life. When other
judges rule, as was recently done,
that the creche is not a religious
symbol but a cultural one, I think

it shows the problem of trivializ-
ing the religious experience."
In a related development,
Samuel Greenberg, national
commander of the Jewish War
Veterans of the United States,
criticized the National Park Serv-
ice for its proposed inclusion of a
nativity scene in the federally-
sponsored Christmas Pageant of
Peace.
In a letter to Russell E. Dicken-
son, National park Service direc-
tor, Greenberg stated that the
JWV "has a long-standing policy
of opposing any government spon-
sored religious activity and finds
the proposed inclusion of a creche
in a federally-sponsored presenta-
tion unacceptable."
Greenberg urged the NPS to re-
consider its plan and to remove
any overt religious symbols from
its display.
