EDUCATORS HEAR TALK ON RACIAL UNDERSTANDING WASHINGTON (JTA)—Educa¬ tors of American Reform Judaism were urged this week to intensify their religious educational pro¬ grams and to assume leadership, through the religious school. In creating greater understanding and better relationships among peoples of different ethnic, relig¬ ious, and racial groups. Addressing the five-day annual convention of the National Fed¬ eration of Temple Educators, Dr. Norman Drochler of Detroit, the orgonizotlon's president, told the dolcgotes thot "one of the most serious problems facing the relig¬ ious educator is putting into prac¬ tice not only by word, but through deed, the teachings of the Jewish heritage which are coiicerned with social justice for all Indi¬ viduals." "IN AMERICA," he continued, "this means schools with equal educational opportunity for each child, decent homes for all our citizens, and fair employment practices for everyone. These achievements will in themselves be empty, so long as people of different racial, ethnic and re¬ ligious bockgrounds are separated by ortificial boundaries and geo¬ graphic divisions." The educators are an afflUate of thc Union of American Hebrew Congregations. DR. DRACHLER said recent studies indicoted that, in the next 15 years, more than 50 percent of thc population in large metropoU- ton cities will be comprised of Negro citizens. This specifically Includes north¬ ern commimities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angelea, Bos¬ ton, Detroit, and others. "Since Jews are mostly located In large metropolitan areas they must, tn cooperation with church, com¬ munal and particularly JSIagro groups, take positive 8tep& to realize the hopes of buUding a democratically Integrated com¬ munity," he stated.
