apartheid policy. We may lose
the war against mixed-
marriage. But we will surely
win the war against Jewish
/Jewish interdenominational
marriage. Our children are be-
ing estranged from each
other."
Which is why, he said, it is
imperative that Jews begin to
deal with their trauma now.
And the way to do that, he
said, is not by trying to
escape from the world but by
embracing the world.
"We cannot say to hell with
the world or we, destroy the
basic meaning of Judaism.
Being Jewish is to be wedded
to the world. To be Jewish is
to know that God lives in the
world, even with its perver-
sion and cruelty and corrup-
tion. lb live in the world is our
mandate, our destiny."
And the way to do that is
to become part of the world
again. And a good way to
start doing that, he said, is by
recognizing and learning
more about the righteous
gentiles who saved Jews dur-
ing the Holocaust.
"Are our children not
deserving to hear something
good of the world? Why
should they only know the
curse of our predators, not the
blessing of our rescuers. By
knowing, we can shed a heal-
ing light that will allow Jews
to believe again, function
again, hope again, trust
again, attempt again."
Schulweis said it is "a scan-

dal that Jews know so little
about the righteous Chris-
tians who saved our lives. We
must have a Simon Wiesen-
thal to search out those who
risked their lives to save our
people. It will show us that
something was done, that
someone protected us, that
there were some people who
acted with decency in hell. We
must remember both the evil
and the good."
Doing so, Schulweis said,
will have a "regenerative
power, healing the cynicism of
the post-Holocaust universe, _
helping us to form a stronger
psyche and turn a new page
in our history.
"It will help us master our
understandable anger. And
that's imperative because you
build no bridges with anger,
only disrespect for the other
side."
That that is the way to go,
said Schulweis, can be seen
by a very good example. The
example set by God in his
prayers. "Yes, the sages tell us
that God also prays. What
does he pray? 'May it be My
will, that My mercy prevails
over My anger.' God can't
govern the world without
mastering His anger. And we
can't build the world without
compassion for others and
ourselves.
"So let each of us pray
God's prayer. May it be our
will that our mercy can
prevail over our anger."

Anti-Semitism:
"Uncertain Times"

he good news about anti-
Semitism in the U.S. is
that there is less than
before, said Irwin Suall. The
bad news is that there is still
too much.
Saull, fact-finding director
of the Anti-Defamation
League, told a session on
"Anti-Semitism in America:
On the Rise or In Decline"
that is reliable information
about three phenomena that
give a good indication of the
level of anti-Semitism in the
United States.
The first is the U.S. public's
attitude towards Jews. Com-
parison of major studies in
1964 and 1981 indicate that
attitudes are improving, said
Suall.
In 1964, 37 percent of non-
Jews could be considered
anti-Semitic. In 1981, that
dropped to 23 percent. In
both 1964 and 1981, 32 per-
cent of non-Jewish Ameri-
cans were considered neither
anti-Semitic nor favorable to
Jews. In 1964, 31 percent had
favorable attitudes towards

Jews. By 1981, that increased
to 45 percent.
"The level of anti-Semitism
is still a serious problem but
things are moving in the right
direction," said Suall.
Another area that gives an
indication of anti-Semitism,
said Suall, is attacks against
Jews or Jewish institutions,
such as synagogues or ceme-
teries. These have decreased
from a high of 974 attacks in
1981 to 638 in 1985.
The third area is organized
anti-Semitic hate groups.
Suall said there has also been
a downward trend in the
number of their members and
sympathizers. The Ku Klux
Klan, for instance, had be-
tween three and five million
members in 1920. That
dropped to 60,000 in 1967, to
13,000 in 1981, and to 6,500
today. This trend, said Suall-;
is true of all other hate
groups.
Suall also noted that anti-
Semitic groups have had lit=\
tle success in exploiting the ,
