Beth El Group
Seeks A Reversal

JILL DAVIDSON SKLAR STAFF WRITER

The Committee to Save Temple
Beth El doesn't want to take a
board of trustees decision as
gospel.
So the group, comprised of 130
congregants, is urging other
members to help call for a con-
gregational vote to overturn the
board's decision to place Rabbi
Daniel Polish on sabbatical.
"We want to make sure the
board has acted concurrent to the
congregants' feelings," said Mar-
cia Gershenson, a member of the
committee.
The board of trustees voted 22-
11 on Jan. 8 to place Rabbi Pol-
ish on a one-year sabbatical
effective June 30, 1995. His con-
tract ends the last day of the sab-
batical. It will not be renewed.
Letters went out this week
asking temple members to sign
a petition requesting the vote.
Congregants also were given the
option of turning in a proxy
which would allow one of the
committee members to cast a bal-
lot for them.

Rabbi Polish: Center of contention.

The committee has given itself
a deadline of March 1 to gather
signatures.
According to temple bylaws, if
150 signatures of members in
good standing are gathered and
presented to the board of
trustees, temple President John
Kamins will call a congregation-
al meeting to hold a vote on the
issue.
The other option to secure a
congregational vote on the issue
is that the rabbi write a letter to
the temple president requesting
it. Rabbi Polish has not written
that letter, said Thomas Jablon-
ski, the temple's executive direc-
tor.
Temple bylaws further state
that to overturn a board vote,
