JEFFREY ACURA

Your recent cover story ("New
Vows" Dec. 2), discussing same-
sex commitment ceremonies be-
tween homosexuals, was surely
offensive to a large percentage of
your readership.
I personally objected to the
placement of this article on the
front page, accompanied by a cov-
er photograph of two lesbians in
a physical embrace.
A publication that calls itself
The Jewish News ought to be
more sensitive to the needs of
families in the community, es-
pecially those with young chil-
dren, and not flaunt behavior
that is antithetical to accepted
Jewish practice and belief in such
a conspicuous manner.
I find it disturbing that young-
sters, among them my perplexed
9-year-old son, need to confront
the issue of two women "getting
married." Ideally, parents should
be able to choose the appropriate
time and manner in which to ex-
plain these situations to their
children.
Since it is acknowledged that
the media plays a major role in
shaping attitudes and behavior,
your publication of this article
serves to legitimatize the issue.
Furthermore, if you continue in
this vein, I would expect to see
engagement announcements of
same-sex unions printed in The
Jewish News in the future, with
the result that your readership
will soon come to accept these re-
lationships as mainstream and
normative.
Ironically, this article ap-
peared during Chanukah, a fes-
tival that celebrates the victory
of Jewish spiritual autonomy
over Greek domination...Indeed,
in the process of assimilation into
the larger society, a large per-
centage of contemporary Amer-
ican Jewry has Hellenized itself,
retaining only those religious
practices that are compatible

with logic, i.e., the liberal values
prevalent today...
The Reform movement's at-
tempt to "chart a responsible po-
sition that follows a tradition but
relies on its own principles" is a
futile effort at best. Homosexual
practices have never been a part
of, and in fact are openly pro-
scribed by Jewish tradition...
Sections of the AIDS Memor-
ial Quilt were recently on display
at the Maple/Drake Jewish Com-
munity Center...Hopefully, those
who cry out for the legitimization
of homosexuality, for the rabbinic
blessing of same-sex unions,
availed themselves of the oppor-
tunity to view this moving,
graphic display, paying their re-
spects to the fallen victims of a
20th century plague.
The lesson is clear for those
who seek it: Let us choose and af-
firm life, and truly sanctify our-
selves with the eternal wisdom
of Torah.

Singles
Involvement

Concerning your article on the
singles scene in Detroit (Nov. 11),
I would -like to commend the
work of B'nai B'rith Leadership
Network. I always read The Jew-
ish News every week and an ar-
ticle about a bowling league
forming through B'nai B'rith
Leadership Network caught my
eye.
Because of my work schedule,
I don't really have time to be part
of the Jewish singles scenes and
to meet new people. It sounded
like a good idea and I did join. I
want to say how much I enjoy it
and it is great to meet new peo-
ple in a relaxed environment.
Because of my involvement in
the bowling, I have started vol-
unteering at other events for
them such as their work with
Federation Apartments. We will
be running a concession stand at
the Silverdome and we will be
feeding the homeless on Dec. 18.
It has turned out to be a re-
warding experience and I would
recommend other singles take
that first step and become in-
volved. You won't be sorry.
