New York (JTA) — A National
Park Service decision to use gov-
ernment funds to sponsor a nativ-
ity creche on public park land was
criticized last week by three na-
tional Jewish civil rights organ-
The American Jewish Congress
asserted the plan violated court
orders. The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith challenged
the federal agency's claim it was
constitutional for it to set up a
nativity scene near the White
Dr. Robert Gordis, executive
vice president of the American
Jewish Committee, said his group
planned to bring a brief before the
Supreme Court, signed by it and
the National Council of Churches,
to challenge "the display of reli-
gious symbols on public prop-
Theodore Mann, AJCongress
president, in a letter to Interior
Secretary William Clark, said the
decision violated federal Court of
Appeals rulings in 1970 and 1977
barring the use of government
funds for that purpose.
The creche is to be displayed as
part of an annual Christmas
Pageant for Peace in Washington.
Nativity scenes have been in-
cluded in previous pageants but
paid for by private funds, he said.
Mann wrote that the Park Serv-
ice rejected an offer from a private
group to pay for the creche, decid-
ing to use public funds, relying on
a Supreme Court decision earlier
this year in "Lynch v. Donnelly"
which approved public funding for
a creche on private property in
Declaring that the decision re-
flected an affirmative and un-
seemly desire on the part of the
Park Service to identify itself
with a particular religion," Mann
said the service was "ignoring an
outstanding court order" in the
belief that that order had been
suspended by "a subsequent court
Mann declared, "We do not be-
lieve it is the business of govern-
ment to sponsor any religious dis-
play — be it a creche, menorah; or
some other symbol."
Kenneth Bailkin, ADL chair-
man, said the Park Service deci-
sion showed "a lack of sensitivity
for the feelings of non-Christians
and also violates the First
Amendment's prohibition against
establishment of a religion."
