Rabbi Abner Weiss, a leading figure in Southern California's Orthodox Jewish community and former president of the Southern California Board of Rabbis, is leaving his Beverly Hills congregation to accept a post in London. Weiss, 61 and a native of South Africa, has been named principal of the London School of Jewish Studies. He will also serve as rabbi of the Western Marble Arch Synagogue in London.

I am a supporter of members of Local 11 of the Hotel Employees & Restaurant Employees Union in their desire to negotiate a contract with USC that ensures the preservation of their jobs. Even so I was shocked and taken aback to read that I was supposedly to be the keynote speaker at a demonstration calling on USC supporters to halt their donations to USC (July 22). I was all the more upset by the inference that since I am vice president of the Southern California Board of Rabbis, the board has endorsed this call for action against USC. No such decision has ever been taken by the board, and as its social action chair I am certain that no such action has ever even been contemplated.

Waves of shock, outrage and fear swept over Jews in Southern California within minutes of Monday's suicide bombing in Israel. As local Jewish leaders at a hastily called rally demanded swift action by the Israeli government and Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Authority to bring the terrorists to justice, the bombings took a wrenching emotional toll on families with relatives in Israel.

The juxtapositioning of Charles Krauthammer's "Israel Can Do Without Tears of High Season" and Paul Conrad's recidivistic "Abraham and Isaac" cartoon clearly reflects the difference in seeing issues with the complexity reality demands and the simplistic perspective of ignorance and bias. While properly referring to the beatings of Palestinians as a "horror and a blot on Israel . . . representing the kind of brutality a desperate army resorts to," Krauthammer--without condoning the action--recognizes the context of Israel's frustration: 40 years of attack, terrorism, refusal to recognize the Jewish state's right to exist, and a willingness by Arab leadership to let the Palestinians fester in refugee camps rather than negotiate a solution which responds to the needs and rights of all parties involved.

A joint Christian-Jewish celebration of Israel's Independence Day, scheduled for Wednesday at the Church on the Way, has been postponed at the church's request because of the fighting between Israel and the Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed militia operating out of southern Lebanon. Based on a successful joint celebration of Israel's birthday for the past three years at the church, as many as 1,400 people had been expected to attend.
