New York (JTA) — The Rev.
Jerry Falwell confronted a group
of angry protestors and dodged
eggs and other items hurled at the
stage at Town Hall Monday night
during a dialogue with Rabbi
William Berkowitz on a wide
range of Jewish issues.
At least 50 persons were force-
ably removed from the hall by se-
curity officials. Many of those who
remained continued their jeering
during the course of the two-hour
program. The demonstration at
the outset of the forum set back
the scheduled starting time by
nearly 30 minutes.
Falwell, the leader of the Moral
Majority, told the crowd of several
hundred people that "I became a
lover of the Jewish people by be-
coming a student of the scrip-
tures" while in his second year of
college. That remark was greeted
by loud catcalls.
Falwell repeated many of his
views enunciated at past forums
in the Jewish community assert-
ing his right to preach the gospel,
while maintaining that he has not
singled out the Jewish people for
mass conversion. "Our mission is
a universal one," Falwell said.
He said he had no ulterior mo-
tives for his friendship with the
Jewish people as some critics have
charged, and that his right to pre-
ach the gospel should not be mis-
interpreted or misconstrued as
anti-Semitic, just as, he asserted
an Orthodox rabbi's rejection of
the theology of Christiandom
should not be regarded as being

Rabbi Berkowitz, who served as
moderator of the discussion, in-
troduced Falwell as "a good friend
of the State of Israel." The rabbi
called for Jews and evangelicals
to work together for "common go-
Falwell was quick to note that
the conservative evangelical
Christians have become strong
supporters of the Jewish state
while "liberal" groups such as the

Rev. Jerry Falwell:

National Council of Churches has
moved away from their support of
Israel to support for the Palestine
Liberation Organization. He
stressed the fact that Israel is the
only democratic ally of the United
States in the Middle East.
The Moral Majority leader also
addressed issues of domestic con-
cern. Falwell said he supports
both the call for voluntary prayer
in the nation's public schools, and
the separation of church and
state, saying he did not feel the
Constitution called for a separa-
tion of "God and State."
Falwell rejected calls for com-
pulsory school prayer. He said no
child should be forced to pray in
schools, that no child should be
denied the right to prayer in pub-
lic schools and that no prayer
should be written by school or
government authorities.
The demonstration outside
Town Hall featured speakers de-
nouncing Falwell as "sexist, ra-
cist, and anti-Semitic." Jacob Be-
nder of the Manhattan Chapter of
the New Jewish Agenda told the
demonstrators that Falwell is "no
friend of the Jews." The demon-
stration included the All Peoples
Congress and the Workers World
Party, both left-wing groups.
