NEW YORK (Jun. 6)
The Synagogue Council of America (SCA) has accused the governing board of the National Council of Churches (NCC) of “manifest prejudice” for condemning Israel’s use of the cluster bomb during its incursion into south Lebanon last March. Rabbi Saul I. Teplitz, the SCA’s president, said the resolution on the NCC prepared by the organization’s committee on inter-religious affairs, headed by Rabbi Mordechai Waxman, of Temple Israel, Great Neck, NY, was unanimously approved by the SCA’s six constituent synagogues and rabbinic bodies. The NCC Resolution did not mention the March II terrorist raid that prompted Israel’s invasion of Lebanon.
