has brought "fresh blood" to a
religion that, if it didn't let
"out-siders" in, would eventu-
ally die off, not by an oppres-
sor, but genetically.
I believe the Reform, Con-
servative and Orthodox rabbis
are going to have to come to a
concise opinion on "Who is a
Jew" and it will have to be
based on the Torah. It can no
longer be left to the individual
▪ rabbis to decide. There are too
many mixed marriages out
there now, too many children

Women Rabbis
Secular Outgrowth?

In reference to your articles on
women rabbis (March 15) — I
would like to point out that the
push for women rabbis is clearly
an outgrowth of the secular
women's movement which func-
tions under three basic premises:
1) that greater significance is
attached to those activities which
are done in public and which at-

tract public recognition, 2) that an
act is significant to the degree
that one is paid for it, and 3) that
intellectual work is intrinsically
superior to physical work.
Judaism catagorically rejects all
three attitudes.
Anyone wishing to enlighten
themselves on this subject would
find a treasury of information in a
paperback book called Jewish
Woman in Jewish Law by Moshe
Meiselman (available at the local
Jewish bookstores). There are
also many classes throughout the
community whose goal is to
enlighten Jewish women about
their "precious legacy."

Humor Applauded

I enjoyed the humor by NOrma
Weitz Zager ("Love At First
Byte," Feb. 15). It was refreshing
after the tasteless article carried
the week before comparing
Jewish women to shiksas.
I would like to see more humor
in The Jewish News. It coincided
perfectly with Valentine's Day.
Thank you for bringing a smile
that day.

Cleveland And
`Precious Legacy'

"Cleveland" did not reject the
Precious Legacy exhibit as Heidi
Press's article March 8 indicates;
rather, Sherman Lee, director of
the Cleveland Museum of Art re-
jected it as "folkloric." Clevelan-
ders themselves have flocked to
see the exhibit in Washington,
Miami and New York. Now — by
the busload — they are heading
for Detroit.
The Cleveland Jewish News has
given extensive coverage to "The
Precious Legacy." I personally
attended the exhibit's opening in
Washington and interviewed its
coordinator Mark Talisman, of
whom Cleveland is very proud.
An exhibit of Mark Talisman's
photos of Prague together with
drawings from Terezin which did
get to Cleveland last year was ex-
tremely well attended.

LETTERS

On Friday March 15 you
printed an article by Henry Sieg-
man, executive director of the
American Jewish Congress which
you entitled, "Democrats won't
hold Jewish vote totals." It also
states: "If Reagan had not em-
braced Falwell's vision of 'Chris-
tian America,' the Jewish vote
would have divided more evenly."
The article relates the Demo-
cratic Party with Anti-Semitism.
Without rehashing the whole con-
troversy, I believe that the Rever-
end Louis Farrakhan was an un-
fortunate aberration who linked
himself to the Democratic Party.
He was repudiated by Walter
Mondale and Jesse Jackson, too.
Mr. Siegman states at one point
> that Jesse Jackson is at the center
of black leadership. Later he says
that "the black community is too
well endowed with qualified polit-
ical leaders who do not trade in
bigotry and racial politics." Many
Jewish leaders including some in
the American Jewish Congress
have stated that we must form co-
alitions with these black leaders.
They will not find them in the Re-
publican Party.
The Democratic Party does not
have to piously reassert its oppo-
sition to anti-Semitism. It is part
and parcel of the traditional
Democratic dedication to civil
liberties and the rights of
minorities. . . .
Jews have supported the Demo-
cratic Party because its philos-
ophy comes closest to fulfilling
our vision of a society free of pov-
erty and homelessness which will
lead the world towards brother-
hood and peace, and they will con-
tinue to do so.

who don't quite know where
they belong.

I have made my personal de-
cision and have asked to be
.converted according to the To-
rah. It was a very difficult de-
cision to make, since I really
don't know what my mother
would have wanted me to do.
Now - my children have to
make that same decision. It is
not easy when no one is sure of
what, where, when, who and
why you are what you are.
