one of Detroit's coldest.

those that insist on mutual re-
spect between Jews and non-
Jews. "I want a Judaism that
celebrates the joy of an Arab just
as it celebrates the joy of Jew,"
Rabbi Hartman said.
Yitzhak Frankenthal, head of
the religious peace movements
Oz V'Shalom (Strength and
Peace) and Netivot Shalom
(Paths of Peace), agrees that fun-
damental Orthodoxy placed the
sanctity of the Land of Israel over
every other value. "They turned
Judea, Samaria and Gaza into
their salvation, and became idol-
ators of land," he says.
Mr. Frankenthal notes that
dozens of Israeli rabbis identify
with the religious peace move-
ment, and insists that many rel-
atively apolitical Orthodox Jews
are now ready to turn away from
the fiery brand of Orthodoxy that
has been in the forefront of Israeli
But these "second looks" at Is-
raeli Orthodoxy, have been made
before. In the early 1980s, when
the "Jewish Terror Under-
ground," made up of religious
West Bank settlers, murdered
Palestinians in vigilante actions;
and after Dr. Baruch Goldstein,
a religious settler in Kiryat Arba,
slaughtered 29 Palestinians in
Hebron's Cave of the Patriarchs
almos two years ago.
After these shattering events,
Orthodox doves leveled the same
criticisms they are making today.
While they offer a compelling
view of Judaism, they do not of-
fer the action that national Or-
thodoxy offers — settling in new
communities, facing danger, tak-
ing to the streets in wild demon-
strations. And alternative
Orthodoxy does not have the en-
trenched network of schools and
yeshivas to educate youth that
national Orthodoxy boasts.
The moderate voices of Ortho-
doxy were a minority before the
Rabin assassination, and, for all
their optimism and the niche
they could fill, there is no reason
to believe they will be a much big-
ger minority in the post-assas-
sination era El
65 years ago, they heated with coal which wasn't terribly expensive—unless you had no money. So it
was with Bessie Kahn's family in 1930. Recently arrived from Russia, she heard about an organization
that helped immigrants get a start. 100 years later, we haven't stopped.
