XISTENTIALISM:
Silverman Views Judaism

it

N

By JUDITH BARCUS
"Existentialism, so often iden-
fied with atheism, has been in-
rumental in breaking through
ie stalemate between science and
ligion," Rabbi David Silverman
id at the B'nai B'rith Hillel
oundation Monday night,
He discussed the contribution
E Paul Tillich, the Protestant
xistentialist, to this break-
irough in an introductory lecture
a "New Directions in Jewish
hought: Post Emancipation."
Rabbi Silverman turned to the
ritings of Maimonides to sup-

roice Calls

Protest Wl
A membership meeting of Voice
Political Party last evening com-
mitted the organization to pro-
vide active support for a demon-
stration to protest United States
policies in South Viet Nam to be
held on Oct. 19, in Washington.
The demonstration, sponsored by
Students for a Democratic Socie-
ty and the Student Peace Union,
will call for an end to American
aid to South Viet Nam, a cease-
fire under United Nations super-
vision, a withdrawal of all United
States troops and free elections
under the terms of the 1954 Gene-
va agreement.
According to Voice, the local
chapter of SDS, the group will seek
to organize transportation from
Ann Arbor to Washington for the
demonstration.
In addition, "We will seek to
publicize the demonstration and
initiate public discussion concern-
ing the Viet Nam crisis on the
campus and in the community,"
Richard Magidoff, Grad, a spokes-
man for Voice, said.
The demonstration will consist
of a picketing of the White House
in the morning and a public rally
in the afternoon. /

port his case that Jewish religious
thought has always been in the
forefront of Judaism. Maimonides
set up a scale of human worth, in
which the Jews who were observ-
ant without knowing the reasons
behind their actions were very un-
important. In contrast, Jews who
thought about the reasons behind
the religious doctrine were to be
greatly respected.
Tillich Theories
After explaining the elements of
Existential philosophy, Rabbi Sil-
verman spoke in detail about Til-
lich's views.
"Tillich has a strange twist in
his argument for religious doc-
trine," he said. Tillich considers
religion important only when it
answers specific questions that
temporary men are asking. There-
fore, he starts with questions such
as "Why does man suffer?" and
pushes them to the limit of human
logic.
Once having realized that there
are no rational answers. man will
have to rely on the religious an-
swers, Rabbi Silverman said.
Raps Religious Philosophy
Tillich also criticizes religious
philosophy because it has tried to
prove the existence of God. Since
God is "being" itself, to prove him
is idolatrous. As one example, Ju-
daism has practiced idolatry by
conceiving of God as a particular
being, Tillich claims.
"It will be interesting to see
how this accusationagainst Jew-
ish theology is dealt with," Rabbi
Silverman concluded.
The Existential interpretation of
the symbols in the Bible are most
important in the conflict between

versity Players' Playbill for the

DAVID SILVERMAN
... existentialism in Judaism
science and religion. Tillich would
agree that the Garden of Eden
did not exist, RabbiSilverman
said. But Tillich would add thatj
its existence ornon-existence is
of no importance. What is im-
portant is that the Garden of
Eden, like other symbols, reveals
something about the nature of
man that cannot be revealed in
another way.
Jewish Reactions
Rabbi Silverman, who is the
chairman of special education for
the Jewish Theological Seminary,
will be the guest lecturer for Hil-
lel's fall seminar in Contemporary
Jewish Philosophy. Growing out of
the needs felt by Jewish students
at the University, the seminar is
intended to discuss Jewish thought
on a higher level than the stu-
dents' elementary orientation in
religious school.
How have the Jews reacted to
Tillich and existential philosophy?
Rabbi Silverman will tackle this
question in his next lecture on
October 30. Before this lecture, all
those intending to participate in
the seminar will meet to discuss
and analyze the assigned readings.

residential college plans and fu-
ture campus planning generally.
He explained that the role of the
student in these projects must be
brought to the attention of the
planners "to insure public policy
discussion of future plans affect-
ing students."
Jefferson Davis, '65, said that
before Council can actively become
involved in academic decisions, "it
must prove its competence to act
in these matters." He cited the
political aspects of Council as det-
riments to proving this compe-
tence.
Delving into specific plans for
student participation in policy-
making, the candidates discussed
the student-faculty parallel com-
mittee structure as one method.
Student-Faculty Ties
Barry Kramer, '65E, saw this
structure as "a way for students to
have a say that is heard."
Citing firm faculty-student ties
as desirable, Douglas Baird, '66,
said that such relations can aid
Council in making "rational and
reasonable recommendations to
the faculty and administration."
As to how he would like to see
Council move generally, Doug
Brook, '65, expressed his general
"approach of pragmatism." He
noted ways for Council to assert
itself "through resolution and lob-
by," expressing the need for a co-
herent philosophy of "student
rights and responsibilities."
Fight for Diversity
Scott Crooks, '65, also called on
Council to act authoritatively. It is
Council's duty "to fight to have
the University keep its diversity
and its substance," he said. Crooks
specifically commented on the
problems of in-state and out-of-
state student ratios.
On the question of dealing with
the OSA, Crooks expressed the
need for "a steady pressure on
OSA by Council." Epker warned
that allowing the OSA to usurp
student authority was one exam-
ple of how "Council could die if it

doesn't take steps where it does
have authority."
For futureicases where the vice-
president for student affairs ve-
toes a Council recommendation
"SGC must be willing to stand be-
hind and fight for what it has
passed," Cunningham said.
Veto Power.
Shenkin observed that Council
must examine "what strength does
the veto have and what right does
the vice-president for student af-
fairs have in the specific case to
issue it." He explained that a veto
on a crucial Council decision
'could be taken as a negation of
the Council itself."
