It could have been a tearful occasion, the rabbi's last sermon before retirement. Temple Menorah in Redondo Beach and Rabbi Leon M. Kahane have shared fortunes for 14 years as he strove to nurture a sense of community in the dispersed Jewish population of the South Bay. But nobody cried as Kahane said his final goodby to his 250-family congregation last week and described his remarkable life and career.

I only want to dispute Lou Sheldon's remark that the program should be ended because it does not give the gay student "any other alternative viewpoint." I realize this man is no Einstein, but give me a break. When we are constantly bombarded by half-naked heterosexual couples selling us everything from suppositories to life insurance, I believe there are enough suggestions of alternative life styles. With 3,000 teen-agers getting pregnant every day in this country, I'd say the life style message is loud and clear.

America's Junior Miss pageant is changing its name to the America's Young Woman of the Year program. "America's Young Woman of the Year is more contemporary and meaningful to today's life style," Executive Vice President R. C. (Buddy) Lauten said Monday. He said the change was made in response to complaints that beauty pageants are outdated and exploit women, and he said it will help contestants "better serve as role models for the people about them."

This country is surveying the health and "sociological state" of people aged 100 or more to discover the secrets of longevity, the official Hungarian news agency MTI said Wednesday. On top of genetic factors, Budapest's Semmelweis Medical University is paying particular attention to environment, life style, the earlier occupation and present activity of the people concerned. There are estimated to more than 200 centenarians among Hungary's population of 10.6 million, MTI said.

I'm incensed! Another big color spread in Life & Style extolling the "gay" lifestyle ("We Have Arrived," June 13). What's gay about such a sterile relationship? Or are these front-page articles just another example of the media's denigrating the Judeo-Christian and family lifestyles so prevalent today? Those of us who have studied the history of civilization are fearful for America. Aren't you? H.J. TONER Irvine

Your article in Orange County Life ("Gay Churches in the Age of AIDS," July 2) demands a reply. It amazes me that you continue to present the gay life style as just another way to live, as though these people are normal. It amazes me more that the gay churches fail to understand the clear teaching of Scripture about their life style. Both the Old and New Testaments condemn this behavior. Leviticus 20:13 says: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable.
