Thia position was taken on the final day of the 19th Plenary Ses¬ sion of the National Community Relations Advisory Council at the Terrace Hilton Hotel, THE COUNCIL comprises abc national jowish secular and reli¬ gious organizations and 62 local Jewish community coiuncils In this country. It includes repre¬ sentation from Orthodox, Con¬ servative and Reform Judaism Dr. David G. Salten, superin¬ tendent ot schools. New Rochelle, I N.Y., urged the Jewish leaders to carefully consider and study the proposal on the grounds 'that "any plan which minimizes the ten¬ dency toward social stratification and promises some re-education In Inter-tellgloua conflict deSferves the most painstaking considera¬ tion by religious and educational leaders." SHABED-TBUE Is a proposal for the voluntary sharing of sehool time of children between the public school and the paro¬ chial school. Youngsters would be able to learn sUch subjects as industrial arts, mathematics, science, and languages in a public school. In i addition to religion, such sub- iects as Engish and Social Stu¬ dies could be taught in the reli¬ giously centered schools. NCRAC OHAntMAN l,ewl8 H. Weinsteln ot Boston, re-elected to office, summarized tbe view¬ point of most delegates: "While shared time may not violate the constitutional separa¬ tion between church and state, it would Impair and, in the end, vitiate our American public school system," he said. Weinstein doubted that the shared-tljne proposal would re¬ solve the heated controversy over government aid to parochial schools. "There Is no reason to expect that those who have been demand¬ ing inclusion of parochial schools in a federal aid program would withdraw their demands just be¬ cause a few communities adopt the new plan." Resolutions adopted; • Charged President Kennedy with a pieco-moal approach to civil rights and accused the 87th Congress of inaction in this field. • Called upon Congress for legislation to eliminate literacy tests and poll tEixes, establish a federal fair emiployment prac¬ tices commission, assist sehool districts complying with deseg¬ regation, empower the attorney general to take action against violation of constitutional guar¬ antees of equality and perma¬ nently establish the Civil Rights Commission. • Urged the United States to be the "vanguard of world opinion in pressing for an Arab-Israel peace." • Asked the government to oppose discrimination by Arab states against American Jews and urged requirement of presidential progress reports on elimination of such bias by countries receiv¬ ing U.S. aid. • Affirmed support of the United Nations. • Denounced the radical right, and noted that its methods are firmly rejected by an overwhelm¬ ing majority of the American people. • Demanded that where Sun¬ day closing laws exist, they should exempt those persons whose re¬ ligion compels them to observe a day other than Sunday as a religious day of rest. • Opposed federal aid to public elementary and secondary Bchools under religious control on thO ground that It would tend to un¬ dermine religious freedom and separation of church and state.
