Rabbi Says It's Halachic
To Say 'No' To Porn

BEN GALLOB

Special to The Jewish News

s there a Jewish side to
the current fierce debate
over whether the Nation-
al Endowment for the Arts
should fund traveling ex-
hibits of the photographic
art of Andreas Serrano and
the late Robert Map-
plethorpe?
The answer is definitely
yes, according to Rabbi
David Novak of Richmond,
Va., who teaches Jewish
studies at the University of
Virginia.
Jews who abide by
Halachah — Jewish re-
ligious law — are required
by it to oppose public por-
nography and public
blasphemy, Novak said in a
recent issue of Sh'ma, in
which he discussed what was
the halachically proper Jew-
ish position in that debate.
The Mapplethorpe exhibit
includes several homoerotic
images, and a Serrano
photograph displaying a
crucifix immersed in urine.
The images have enraged
the religious and political

right wing in the United
States.
The halachically correct
position also is to oppose
both exhibitions, says
Novak, even though Jews
are supposed to be tradi-

He asserted that "the
question before us (as Jews)
is not simply answered by
direct reference to Jewish
law, since much of that law
is not to be enforced in a
society where Halacha is not
the governing norm."
He denied, in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, that he meant to
imply that in the absence of
a Jewish theocratic state,
Halachah is not binding on
Jews. The point he sought to
make, Novak explained, was
that there is no authority
which can enforce Jewish
law.
Many Jews abide by the
laws of kashrut, refrain from
working on the Sabbath and
adhere to other command-
ments entirely on a volun-
tary basis, he said.
Therefore, Novak said, on
the principle of self-imposed
