WASHINGTON (JTA) - Rabbi Arthur Schneier, president of the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, proposed last week a summit conference of religious leaders from throughout the world to help - stem the spread of religious fanaticism which is causing intolerance, terror and persecution. "The purpose of such a conference would be not to discuss theology but rather tolerance and respect for differences — how to seek it, how to teach it, how by precept and example, to practice it," he told reporters at a breakfast meeting at the National Press Club. "The growing polarization of faiths and peoples and nations that afflicts our world today thrives on intolerance," Schneier declared. "We need ways to stop it. It leads to bloodshed. We need ways to prevent it." Schneier said , that the Appeal of Conscience Foun- Temple Israel Announces Guest Rabbi And Cantor To Assist At High Holy Day Services Robert Aronson, president of Temple Israel, announces that Rabbi Sidney H.

While in Omaha, Rabbi Brooks received numerous awards and recognition for his leadership and spiritual guidance. He was presented the Plaque of Integrity and Excellence by the Omaha Metropolitan Association of Churches, received the Humanitarian Award from the National Council of Christians and Jews and the George Washington Award of Honor from the Freedom Foundation.

Originally from Buffalo, N.Y., he earned his B.A. in English literature from the' University of Cincinnati and later was ordained as rabbi from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. His first pulpit was as an assistant rabbi in Richmond, Va!, but he soon became senior rabbi at Temple Shalom in Springfield, Ohio, where he served for six Gerald Cohn Appointed Chairman Of Alzheimers Disease Commission Gerald N.

' "I believe such a religious summit is urgently necessary, now more than ever," he said. ''From it, I would hope, will come a cry demanding a halt to the killings and bombings and acts of terrorism that are being carried out daily in the name of religion." 'An American Selihot Service' To Premiere At Tifereth Israel "An American Selihot Service," a new musical work for synagogue by Broadway composer Gary William chose to call the work 'An American Selihot Service' because we think that it has succeededin fusing the melodic upbeat feel of the American musical theatpe with the deep lyricism of tradi- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 17) He added that if the conference succeeds, it "could become a permanent institution in the . international political landscape, meeting perhaps once every five years, to deal with new issues and speak out on new crises that arise." Schneier, an Orthodox rabbi who is spiritual leader of the Park East Synagogue in Manhattan, said "that there is a religious revival throughout the world partly because of "the fear of nuclear destruction." While he welcomes this trend, he said it has also sparked an increase in religious fundamentalism' which he noted always means "less tolerance." . FCC Ruling On Kansas Radio Station Is Assailed By ADL Cantor Jack Chomsky Friedman, will have its world premiere at Selihot , services at Congregation Tifereth Israel on Saturday night, Sept.- 7. The composer > will conduct the performance during the service, which begins at midnight, and will also discuss the work in a coffee hour which begins at 10:30 p.m. The work is scored for bar-„ itone, choir, violin, cello, bass, clarinet, harp and . vibes and percussion and will feature Cantor Jack Chomsky and the Tifereth Israel Synagogue Choir along with other area music professionals. "We are very excited about this musical service and hope that many members of our community will be able to share in this beautiful .event," commented Cantor Chomsky, who has worked closely .with the com-, poser from the beginning of the project six months ago. "Ina sense, this began as a community project, since my first exposure to the music of Gary William Friedman came when I was asked to sing the premiere of his Haskalah Suite in 1983 at the Jewish Center with the Cor Iumbus Symphony Chamber Orchestra under Gary Sheldon's direction. I came to know Gary William Friedman through Gary Sheldon, and it was natural that when • we chose to seek a new work fbr 'Selihot, we would approach Mr. Friedman. We i ■ .'. .; ■ . NEW YORK (JTA)-The Federal ; Communications Commission ruled last week that the license renewal hearing involving a Dodge City, Kansas radio station, KTTL-FM, will not include consideration of the station's anti-Jewish anti-Black, broadcasts in 1982 and 1983. Kahane Quits As JDL Chief - NEW YORK (JTA) - Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the Jewish Defense League, and presently a member of Israel's Knesset, has announced his resignation as head of the JDL. He said he had named as his successor Irv Rubin, who lives in Los Angeles where he has been JDL West Coast coordinator: A splinter group, the Jewish Defense Organization, was * formed here and has been hostile to Rubin and his followers. Kahane, in announcing his resignation here, said he did so partly because he could not give enough time to'the JDL and partly because he felt his resignation would .make it easier for him to visit the United States, should he be required to. give up his United States citizenship. He said legislation is under consideration in Israel declaring that no member of the Knesset can have dual citizenship. The 54-year-old Brooklyn- born Orthodox rabbi moved to Israel in 1971 and later formed the Kach Party. He was elected to the Knesset last year on a platform of driving all Arabs out of Israel. The FCC ruling was immediately assailed by the Anti- Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, whose director, Ttfa- than Perlmutter, said the FCC's decision "strains credulity. By any standard of public interest, of democratic fairness, of plain common sense, KTTL does not merit a broadcast license." The FCC ruling was a formal order, and reiterated the Commission's April 26 action that broadcasts such as Uiose aired on KTTL-FM fall within the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech. The next step will include a hearing before an administrative law judge. The hearing, for which no date has yet been set, will in- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 19) Cracow To Celebrate First Bar Mitzvah In Thirty-Five Years NEW YORK (JTA)-On Sept. 7, the Jews of Cracow, Poland, will celebrate their first bar mitzvah in 35 years. The bar mitzvah boy will be Eric Strom, an eighth- grader from Stamford, Conn. Eric, his family, and their rabbi will make the journey to Cracow because of a request from the'leader of the Jewish community there: "Send us a bar mitzvah, Send us life," the Cracow Jewish leader said. That was in April, when a group of Federation of Jewish Philanthropies trustees and leaders visited Cracow on a UJA-Federation Campaign of New York trip. "I (CONTINUED ON PAGE 151 "V ■'-•SSI &L
