Object Type: Record
In Collection: M365 Ben-Ami (Rabbi David Z.) Papers


From the Ben-Ami (Rabbi David Z.) Papers. The letter from Mrs. Smith expresses her dismay at the forced resignation of Rabbi David Z. Ben-Ami from Temple B'nai Israel for his civil rights activities, about which she read in Drew Pearson's Christmas Day 1964 column. She urges the Temple B'nai congregation to reconsider this action and outlines her reasons against the backdrop of Biblical texts and historical context.
