'Break Tradition'
Unrelated Photo

In your Jan. 3 edition the pic-
ture that was used in conjunc-
tion with the article "Breaking
Tradition?" was utterly deceiv-
ing. That particular picture was
taken during a women only
Shachrit service.
I, for one, am not for "break-
ing tradition" and was most un-
happy to see my picture pub-
lished with a totally unrelated
article.

Some Criticism Of
Lubavitch Article


CREATIVE JEWELRY

4

LETTERS

--------------------

My
position
on
the
Lubavitcher movement is that it
is a very positive force in Jewish
life which is also wrong in push-
ing the who is a Jew issue and
which must beware lest its suc-
cess lead to excess. Your story
(Jan. 10) reverses my tone and
wrongly makes my views sound
like a negative judgment. I don't
like this, but hope that the
movement will understand, in
the spirit of "Faithful are the
wounds (criticisms) of a friend"
(Proverbs 27,6).
Knowing Alexander Schindler
as I do, I find, it unimaginable
that he would use such an anal-
ogy as Mengele. Surely he must
have been misconstrued.
As a matter of principle, no
Jew should ever draw analogies
between Nazis' (Mengele's!) be-
havior and what Jews do. The
Holocaust is not another
metaphor. It is a horrifying fact,
so monstrous that one should
draw any analogy from it with
great restraint. Never should
such an analogy be drawn or
applied to a holy community
like the Lubavitcher Hasidim.

Irving. Greenberg

National Jewish Center For
Learning and Leadership

The article on Lubavitch has
raised some questions concern-
ing Lubavitch philosophy and
policy. Lubavitch accords equal-
ity to every Jew regardless of af-
filiation, background, education
or level of observance and ex-
tends unqualified love (Leviticus
19:18, Tanya Ch. 32) and con-
cern to each and every one. The
pioneering, world-wide outreach
effort of Lubavitch over the past
45 years, undertaken at consid-
erable sacrifice to both indi-
vidual Chassidim and the
movement as a whole, is based
on the unconditional commit-
ment to all Jews ...
Although Lubavitch is com-
mitted to all Jews, Halacha
must make the determination of
who is a Jew(ish convert). It is
not a personal decision nor is it
a Lubavitch movement decision;
it is exclusively a Halachic issue
and by its conclusion all Torah-
observant Jews are bound.
The only, time the question of
who is a Jew arises is when
there has been a conversion.
Halacha has been consistent for
3,000 years about the require-
ments for conversion — namely,
the same procedures the Jewish
people underwent when they be-
came Jews when they. received
