'Yes' Vote For
Women Rabbis

BY TEDD SCHNEIDER

Staff Writer

While the majority of Conserva-
tive rabbis in metropolitan Detroit
voted in favor of the ordination of
female rabbis by their governing body,
the Rabbinical Assembly, a number of
supporters expressed doubts about the
current viability of such a measure for
their congregations.

"I still see that the issue of a
woman rabbi is problematic," Rabbi
Stanley M. Rosenbaum, of Cong. B'nai
Moshe in Oak Park said. "I wish there
had been more thought given to a reso-
lution of the Halachic aspects of this
issue, rather than an avoidance of
them," the rabbi said, referring to last
week's announcement that the 1,100
rabbis who constitute the Assembly
had approved in a mail ballot the ac-
ceptance of woman rabbis graduated
from the Jewish Theological Semi-
nary.
"How much good it will do, I don't
know," the rabbi of the Downtown
Synagogue, Noah Gamze, said Friday.
"Even many Jewish women who con-
sider themselves liberated may feel
uncomfortable in front of a female
rabbi."
Rabbi Gamze added that the
thought of a woman leading a Conser-

The B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion at Wayne State University and
the Muslim Students Association
(MSA), described in the AIPAC
(American-Israel Public Affairs
Committee) College Guide as "the
most blatantly anti-Semitic of the
major anti-Israel groups on campus,"
have found new fuel for their old
battles.
Hillel is criticizing the MSA for
selling copies of The Protocols of the
Learned Elders of Zion, an anti-
Semitic canard which remains a basic
staple in the arsenal of bigots, even

today, according to Richard Lobent-
hal, executive director of the Michigan
Region of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
According to Mouhamad
Naboulsi, chairman of WSU's Muslim
Student Affairs Committee and past
MSA president, the MSA has the right
to sell anything it wants and that it is
up to the reader to determine if it is
false or not.
"I will not defend the book,"
Naboulsi said, "but I will defend our
right to sell it. Let the public buy the
book and they will decide whether it is
false or not. Hillel has no right to tell
us what to do."
Hillel director Rabbi Louis Fin-
kelman agrees. "Sure ; they have every
right to sell it. If they want to associate
themselves with this kind of racism,
they are free to do it. The First
Amendment allows them to sell it.
However, the First Amendment also
allows us to protest it."
