conceded. But today's blacks
are different.
The ADL survey found that
while fewer white Americans
than ever agree with the state-
ment "Jews are more loyal to
Israel than America," this is not
the case in the black commu-
nity.
Professor Stokes says blacks
do not understand Jews' un-
conditional support of Israel. In
part it's because blacks iden-
tify with other oppressed
groups — which in this case
they understd to be the
they
Palestinians. The other issue
is the Israel-South Africa con-
nection, which "leads blacks to
ue suspicious, at best," Pro-
fessor Stokes says.
Like Mr. Gad-Harf, Mr.
Lobenthal says the survey
shows the need for increased
black-Jewish dialogue. And like
Professor Stokes, he acknowl-
edges that the two communi-
ties do not always understand
each other.

r. David Schoem, a
University of Michigan
dean, has taught a num-
ber of courses on black-
Jewish relations. While
I concerned about the survey's
1 results, he's frustrated that the
positive aspects of dialogue are
rarely publicized. He wishes
,..booth communities would "focus
more on areas of shared inter-
est than overfocus on areas of
"disagreement."
He also says Jews have
much more to fear from right-
wing fundamentalists than
blacks. 'The black community
is not the community Jews
should be concerned about in
terms of anti-Semitism," he
says.
"I'm not condoning anti-
( Semitism, but it's a matter of
educating," added former
AJCommittee dialogue group
co-chairman Frank Sklarsky.
Mr. Sklarsky believes the
survey reflects a feeling of gen-
eral despair among blacks.
Mr. Sklarsky expressed sup-
port for more black-Jewish di-
alogue, though with the
understanding that group lead-
ers bring the message back
home to their own communi-
ties.
And while he feels strongly
that blacks are obligated to ad-
dress anti-Semitism within
their own community, he asks
Jews to take a good look at
themselves, too.
"What I'd like to see now is
a survey on prejudice within
Lthe Jewish community," he
says. ❑

ultimate perfection does not
include any action or good
conduct, but only knowl-
edge.
