American Rabbis Call for Continued Dialogue with Christianity

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A resolution calling for “a continued and widened dialogue with Christianity,” was adopted here today by the Rabbinical Assembly of America, the organized body of Conservative rabbis in this country. The Assembly concluded its 65th annual convention by adopting a number of other resolutions and by re-electing Rabbi Max J. Routtenberg as its president. More than 600 delegates attended the five-day parley.

Another resolution deplored the failure of the new leadership in the USSR Government to end “the inequities against the Jewish people in the Soviet Union.” Still a further measure extended the support of the Conservative rabbinate in this country “to all those synagogues and Jewish institutions in Israel which are unable to accept the monopoly of the controlling religious bodies and yet are unwilling to abdicate their search for religious alternative and spiritual identity.”
