you can limit to just males or
just females.
But one of the major turning
points for me in that thinking
was during the Shiva for a close
female friend's mother. I went to
my friend's house one morning
to daven and she led services.
And having grown up with her
it seemed like the most natural
thing in the world for her to be
up there. She wasn't male or
female, she was just up there."
So how does someone so pro- -
gressive catch on with an in-
stitution as rigid and conserva-
tive as the Naval Academy?
(Regulations required that he
shave his beard for the first
time since high school.)
"I liked their uniform," he
jokes, "but there was more to it
than that. I see it as the fulfill-
ment of a personal desire to do
some kind of service for my
country."
Pastnerak first became aware
of the Navy's chaplaincy pro-
gram through some people at
the yeshivah in Israel. After
hearing how it worked and the
great flexibility it offered, he got
caught up with the idea.
His offical moniker for the
training is Theological Student
Program Officer. The commit-
ment began with 17 weeks of
classroom training and boot-
camp in Newport, Rhode Island
this past summer.
While still a seminary stu-
dent, Pasternak devotes only his
summers to the chaplaincy pro-
gram, and there is no further
obligation until he is ordained.
At that point, he can go into
active duty for a minimum of
three years or choose to enter
the reserves. One of the unique
aspects of the program, however,
is that if upon graduation from
his Seminary he decides not to
pursue ordination, his committ-
ment to the Navy ends im-
mediately.
The Navy cannot pick up any
of his schooling expenses be-

cause of the Constitutional
amendment separating church
and state, but they do pay a sal-
ary while he's enrolled in the
training program. Trainees
enter the program as an ensign
and graduate as a second
lieutenant. In addition, while
Pasternak is still in school, he
can request the type of on-the-
job chaplaincy training he
wants.
"It's one of the Navy's favorite
acronymns — ACDUTRA —
Active Duty for Training. They
can send me anywhere from
shipboard to a recruiting depot
or any outlet. I've requested
hospital chaplaincy for next
summer. And I keep going back
every summer until I'm or-
dained."
Pasternak described his first
summer's involvement as "a
marvelous experience" which
sounds like something between
a job and an adventure (with
apologies to the armed forces
advertising agency).
There were five other rabbini-
cal students in his troop (includ-
ing the husband-wife duo)
among the 24 denominations re-
presented. The Navy recognizes
130 and likes to call these
"faith-groups." "Half of us were
still students, half were already
ordained, and of those, half were
going right on to active duty."
His own plans are still uncer-
tain right now, but he has about
four years before he must de-
cide.
The summer training days
started at 5:30 a.m. and in-
cluded classes on everything
from a brief on the Soviet Navy
to a talk from a former Vietnam
war hero and prisoner of war, to
instruction on Naval corre-
spondence techniques. Paster-
nak says, "The only thing simi-
lar between the way the Navy
writes a letter and the rest of
the world writes letters is that
they both use a paper and pen-
cil." There are also history
