BACKGROUND

Reform-Orthodox Ties
Debated At Conference

LARRY YUDELSON

Special to the Jewish News

S

nowmass, Cola — The
Central Conference of
American Rabbis couldn't
have timed its conference better.
As 350 Reform rabbis gath-
ered in this mountain resort to
discuss "Reform Integrity
Within Klal Yisrael," with a fear-
ful eye toward the growing rift
within the Jewish community,
events propelled the issue into
the headlines
The previous week, the Orth-
odox Rabbinical Council of
America announced its
withdrawal from the Joint
Chaplaincy Board of the JWB
because the CCAR had recom-
mended a woman rabbi as a
chaplain. And just before the
conference opened, Israeli In-
terior Minister Yitzhak Peretz
announced that he would mark
"convert" on the identity card of
Shoshanna Miller, who had been
converted to Judaism by a Re-
form rabbi in Colorado Springs.
Rabbi Jack Stern, CCAR
president, compared Peretz's
decision to the use by the Nazis
of a yellow star for identification
of Jews. He urged CCAR mem-
bers to telegraph the Israeli
government in protest.
There was fear that Reform
and Orthodox Judaism are fun-
damentally irreconcilable, but
amidst the gloom, the possi-
bility of fraternity and even
respect between Orthodox and
Reform was demonstrated by
the conference's keynote
speaker, Orthodox Rabbi Walter
Wurzburger.
Although his remarks were
not revolutionary, his ap-
pearance, believed to be the first
by an Orthodox rabbi before the
CCAR, was compared to Pope
John Paul II's recent visit to the
Rome synagogue and was seen
as a concrete sign that the
bridges of communication,
though shaky, are still open.
Wurzburger called on both Or-
thodox and Reform to "cease
and desist from confrontational
tactics," noting that "we are not
adversaries but allies "
He noted that by definition
Orthodoxy cannot subscribe to
the Reform belief in religious
pluralism, that all branches of
Judaism are equally legitimate.
Yet Wurzburger welcomed "the
enormous contributions of Re-
form to the survival of the
Jewish people and the applica- ,
tion of the ethical insights of our
heritage to the contemporary
scene."
"Reform," the continued,
"makes it possible for many
Jews to deepen their attachment '
to the Jewish people by pro-
viding religious meaning and
purpose to Jewish existence?'
In regard to the Joint Chap-
laincy Board, Wurzburger, a
former president of the RCA,
termed its withdrawal from the
board "a pity." He said there is
no reason a woman could not

function as a rabbi in the
chaplaincy.
In an address on "The Au
thentic Reform Rabbi," Rabb,
Joseph B. Glaser, CCAR exec4
tive vice president, express&
distress over the chaplainc3
break-up, which he said he know
ingly caused.
He told the conference th. --\'
when he signed Julie Schwartz'f.
endorsement for a chaplaincy, h E
felt "blood fade from my finger
my knees tremble and tears gc
down my face" with the knowl
edge that he was destroying the
chaplaincy board. )
But, he said, "I did it becaus\(
I knew it was right. There is nc,
damn reason a woman could not
be a rabbi, by their standards el
ours."

'Any consideration
of rescinding the
resolution on
patrilineality is
entirely beyond the
realm of
possibility."

Ellenson, a professor at th(
Hebrew Union College-Jewisl
Institute of Religion in Lo
Angeles, spoke on the history a)
Orthodoxy's rejection of Reform,
The ultimate foundation for th(
refusal lay in Reform's devia!
tions from Orthodox belief, lv
said, citing Orthodox rabbit
from the 19th century to the
present.
As a result, he said, "no action
we could ever take, short of
decision to dissolve ourselves a s
a movement, would legitimat(
Reform religiously as part Ol
Klal Yisrael, as the Orthodo)
define it."
Ellenson said that "bridges to
ward mutual respect and under
standing," or at least civility
should be the goals in the Re
form relationship with th'
Orthodox.
Ellenson defended CCAR'
1983 "patrilineal decision' ,
recognizing children of Jewish i
fathers as Jewish. While it is "
admittedly radical depart
from our people's tradition," Ni
said, the reality of intermarriag
caused the majority of du'
CCAR to claim that a broade
definition of Klal Yisrael wa
created with the resolution.
Addressing his Conservativ
colleagues, who reaffirmed tb'
traditional matrilineal definition
of Jewish identity at their Rab
binic Assembly conference it
May, Stern said, "Do not
dismiss the possibility that, 1d
or 20 years from now, you, to
will seriously consider the adopt
tion of the patrilineal position.(
\At the heart of the patriline
decision — and the conflict wit
Orthodoxy over conversion —
lies the essential Reform defim
tion of who is a Jew.
The Reform definition is best
understood by contrasting it
the Orthodox definition, whict
