tion. Only if we Jews assert our
rights as the full citizens we are
and as the United States Con-
stitution intends us to be, can we
preserve the integrity of our fai
and maintain the proud pu IC
posture that has permitted us to ,
flourish as a community.
If our concern about the nativ-
ity scene is to be effective we have
no choice but to litigate against
the menorah. We cannot expect
other faiths to understand and re-
spect our views about the creche
unless we also seek to ban the
government-endorsed display of
our own religious symbol. There
simply is no principled basis to
distinguish between government
sponsorship of a creche and a
Before initiating litigation last
November, repeated appeals were
made to the Lubavitch movement
• — which was responsible for.the
erection of the Chicago menorah
— to place the menorah on private
land. All appeals were unavail-
Our objection to these displays
is most emphatically not rooted in
any embarassment at public dis-
plays of Jewish objects. In fact, we
have urged, and continue to urge,
the display of Jewish religious
symbols on private land and by
private individuals. Rather, it is
our view that Judaism does not
need the approval of government
to flourish and in fact that the
price of such "approval" down the
road may be the loss of religious
independence and integrity. This
was the principal consideration in
our decision to file suit.
Finally, past efforts of the
Jewish community to prevent
display of religious symbols in
public buildings by measures
short of litigation, such as public
protests, have sometimes gener-
ated substantial anti-Semitism
and ill feelings without accom-
plishing their intended purpose.
By contrast, we anticipate that
the incremental increase in bad
feelings attributable to this liti-
gation — which we believe will
accomplish its purpose'— will not
Certainly it is a small price to
pay to eliminate the long-term
religious divisiveness generated
within many of our nation's com-
munities by displays of religious
symbolism in government
