The Jewish Community Center will present Rabbi Philip Bernstein, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Sunday evening, February 13, at 8 p.m., at Temple Beth Israel.  Rabbi Bernstein’s topic will be “The Challenge of Religion in a Democracy.”

Rabbi Bernstein is the author of the Life magazine’s articles “What the Jews Believe” which evoked the most enthusiastic response in the history of that publication. His book, an explanation of the article, is a best seller.

He is currently rabbi of Temple B’rith Koesh in Rochester, New York, and was advisor on Jewish Affairs in post-war Germany to the United States Army in Europe.

As president of Central Conference of American Rabbis, Rabbi Bernstein led an historic seminar of reform Rabbis in Israel during the summer of 1951.  They covered the country from Metulah to Elath; talked with most of the leading personalities, as well as with the rank and file of the people.
