In Russell Chandler's excellent article (Sept. 12), "Farrakhan's Message of 'Hate and Bigotry,' " he made a one-word error--unintentional, I am sure--which distorts what I told him in our interview at the Anaheim Convention Center. What I said--and what I have been saying consistently to my black friends--was: "I consider (Louis) Farrakhan a far greater danger to the welfare of the black community than to the Jewish community." "Black separatism would be as counterproductive for blacks in this country, where whites are in the majority, as it proves to be for whites in South Africa, where blacks are in the majority."

I want to dispel an impression left by Russell Chandler's article on interfaith marriage (Dec. 21). As a rabbi my concern with this topic is not that couples in interfaith marriages find a way for them to work; on the contrary, my concern is for them to become Jewish marriages. It should be self-evident that neither I nor Temple Menorah's Shalom Club endorses in any manner either intermarriage or apostasy from Judaism. It distressed me, and many members of my community, that of the five couples featured three had chosen to leave Judaism formally through baptism.

The article (May 27), "Unitarians: Oneness in Diversity," was both interesting and informative. It is comforting to know that, in an age of disillusionment and skepticism, religion still makes suitable front-page copy. It is unfortunate that religion writer Russell Chandler had to resort to a lead-in paragraph describing a striptease, but sex sells and we all know it. Despite the usefulness of the article, however, several misleading statements beg for clarification, not the least of which is labeling the Unitarian Universalist Assn.

Except for the tone set by the headline "Church Beats California Institutions to Bequest" (Oct. 2), I found Russell Chandler's article fairly balanced. Yes, there is a fuss over a book. The church is publishing a number of biographies on Mary Baker Eddy. Critics suggest that one biography, "Destiny of the Mother Church" by Bliss Knapp, is now being released merely to satisfy terms of a will of which the church is beneficiary. It is becoming apparent that the real issue is not money.

Los Angeles Roman Catholic Archbishop Roger M. Mahony has declined an invitation to engage in a public debate over the issue of offering birth-control services on high school campuses, indicating that he has said all he wishes to say on the matter.

Stanford University President Donald Kennedy, buffeted by months of high-profile controversies--especially the university's spending of federal research money--announced his resignation Monday. Kennedy's decision to step down in August, 1992, was detailed in a letter to Stanford's Board of Trustees. "At present we are talking too much about our problems and too little about our opportunities," Kennedy said in the letter.

The article by Russell Chandler ("Texans Offer to Turn Flock Into 'Healers' ", Part I, Dec. 4) concerning Charles and Frances Hunter, included a few statements by me which I desire to comment on, and, especially, to clarify his description of me as a "Christian believer," which I take as a compliment, but, since I am a Jew, is not entirely accurate.
