That was the night he taught 15-year- olds. They were too old to be held in check by the various subtle threats that mattered to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah class. Their very presence was a sullen concession to parents. The parents, too, acted as if the small religious school fee and the 10-minute drive for pick-up and delivery of their offspring were sacrifices equivalent to Abraham's offering of Issac. This evening's topic for discussion was anti-Semitism. The week before the rabbi had assigned a short story by Elie Wiesel. He asked how many read it. None of them had. He gave them 20 minutes to read it in class. At least it kept them quiet. The popping of bubble gum indicated they had finished reading. The rabbi commenced with his little speech on "What is Anti-Semitism." Well, you see, he told them, it's something like the bigotry that Blacks have suffered. Something like that. At this,, one boy, Jason, snickered out loud. He was soon followed by others. They splashed the rabbi with a wave of derision. As it turned out, the students related quite a number of incidents of hatred against Jews -- considerably more, in their opinion than anti-Black incidents. Theirs was a liberal, progressive high school, overrun with counselors and psychologists eager to make bussed-in students feel welcome. Their classmates had undergone rigorous training in sensitivity to Blacks, Latinos, even trans- sexuals. But no one said anything about Jews. So on one occasion when Jason had been called a \\; take his complaint only to the last resort, his parents. Morn counselled "understanding" while dad urged him to take the "long view" of the situation. Both were terribly proud that Jason had resisted hitting the senior back. There were more such stories of physical and emotional bigotry, slices of adolescent life carved with the sharp knife of cruelty. And there was a smoldering anger at parents who forced them to smile when they hurt. The rabbi was shocked at the kids' experiences but he was hardly surprised at the parental reaction. Many of the families belonged to a sister congregation whose main sanctuary had been torched to the ground a year ago. The congregants there still insisted that the fire was of "unknown origins." Every Sabbath they held services in a church, to show that they had no hard feelings towards the Gentile community. They held cheerful fund-raising concerts Christ-killer by a born-again for Christian groups senior, and his nose had been sometimes breaking even slightly bloodied, too, he could "'Let's get back to the story," I D IIIIIIIl|Dlil IDilil el IDlil| iilllllllllll ID| | D|| || | D H| !
