SPOKESMEN OF THREE RELIGIOUS FAITHS DISCUSS UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN ALL DENOMINATIONS

A symposium on the subject of “Inter-denominational Understanding.” was held at the Community Center of Congregation B’nai Jeshrun. last night, under the auspices of the Community Club. Prominent spokesmen of the Catholic. Protestant and Jewish denominations presented their respective views on the subject of “Interdenominational Understanding.”

Dr. Israel Goldstein. Rabbi of the Congregation. who presided, said: “Interdenominational understanding is not only desirable but it is indispensable to the successful working out of American nationhood. Our Republic has been founded upon the premise that different races and creeds can here become integrated into one great community. The test of civilized life is whether there can be differentiation among constituent elements within a larger binding unity. Among most of the European nations. religious equality has come to be recognized only after generations of struggle against inequality. Ours is the only great nation in which equality has been established from the very beginning of its national existence. Interdenominational understanding is, therefore. the very essence of Americanism. If Catholic Protestant and Jew cannot live to gether successfully in America. then it is possible nowhere in the world.”

The Protestant spokesman. Dr. Daniel A. Poling. Pastor of the Marble Collegiate Church, formerly President of the City Federation of Churches said: “Right relationships between Jews. Catholics and Protestants begird with an appreciation of the common values of life. the simple acceptance of those institutions and experiences that we have. not because we are Jews Catholics or Protestants. but because we are first of all men and women, fathers and mothers. and citizens.”

The Catholic spokesman was Dr James J. Walsh. Medical Director of the Fordham University School of Sociology. He declared: “If we but know anyone well enough, any human being, we shall find something about them that is estimable. What we need is to know the people themselves and not someone else’s opinion of then which may be founded on nothing better than the printed opinion of some one who never really knew anything about them. With the will to believe we recent anything. Let us have the will to believe only what is good and ### we hear evil, find out before we go a stop further.”

The Jewish spokesman was Dr. Alexander Lyous. Rabbi of the Gar-Seld Place Temple in Brooklyn. He said: “Cooperation between the different denominations is indispensable to and civilization. Our problems are too ### and too, many for any par### group to handle them by itself ###### is the result of ###. We must be cooperative ###.
