Seven members of the Danbury Ministerial Association have resigned because Rabbi Jerome Malino, spiritual leader of the United Jewish Center here, is a member, it was reported over the week-end. The Rev. Stanley C. Lewis, pastor of the Baptist Church here, announced formation of a new group to be called the Christian Evangelical Ministerial Association. Mr. Lewis said of Rabbi Malino; “He is not a Christian and does not accept Christ as the son of God.”
