Israel Court Rules on "Who?"
U.S. Jews Split On Decision
ONE MILLION WALK OUT Jerusalem Angry Israeli
workers protest outside the Knesset Building (unseen)
during a two-hour walkout where some one million Israelis
protested the highest unemployment rate since 1967. Union
activists claim 140,000 Israelis are out of work, the most in
the state's il yean. (APIWide World Photo)
NEW YORK (JTA) Amer-
ican Jewish organizations
were divided along denomina-
tional lines in their reactions to
two rulings issued this week by
Israel's highest court on the
"Who Is a Jew" controversy.
Non-Orthodox organizations
praised the High Court of Jus-
tice's reaffirmation of the
right of non-Orthodox con-
verts to gain automatic Israeli
citizenship.
But Orthodox groups
focused on the second ruling,
in which non-Orthodox rabbis
were again blocked from per-
forming marriages and other
personal-status rituals in
Israel.
Swift reaction to the land-
mark rulings indicated that,
despite efforts by some groups
to paint the convert decision as
a "victory for Jewish unity,"
the "Who Is a Jew" issue
remains a divisive concern in
the Diaspora.
The Association of Reform
Zionists of America called the
ruling on converts "a major
victory for religious liberty
and religious pluralism in
Israel."
And it termed the ruling
denying non-Orthodox rabbis
the right to perform marriages
On "Approved" PLO Contacts
Shamir Disputes Arafat Claim
By RUTH E. GRUBEK
ROME (JTA) Yasir Ara-
fat claimed in an Italian news-
paper interview that Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir sanctioned Israeli govern-
ment contacts with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
and that one of Shamir's rep-
resentatives met recently in
Vienna with a senior PLO
member.
In Israel, aides to Shamir
described the allegations as
"nonsense" and "lies."
In the interview from PLO
headquarters in Tunis, which
was published this week in
Rome's II Messaggero, Arafat
said a member of the PLO
executive committee met in
Vienna with "a representative
of the Central Committee of
Likud, who came as a delegate
from Shamir." The head of the
PLO refrained from giving
details about the meeting.
Arafat did say, however,
that Shamir's recent claim
that he has held secret meet-
ings with Palestinian repre-
sentatives from the Israeli-
occupied territories who are
not members of the PLO, and
that the PLO had nothing to do
with these meetings, "is not
true" and that the PLO had
sanctioned the meetings.
His claims refute comments
made by Shamir in an inter-
view last week with the news
weekly Panorama. "I don't
want to talk with the PLO
because of the ideology of this
organization, which continues
to practice terrorism." Shamir
was quoted as saying.
Bush Envoy Selected
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON, (JTA) -
The Bush Administration wel-
comed this week's resolution
of Israel's coalition crisis and
said it was dispatching a senior
official to Israel next week.
John Kelly, U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian
affairs, will visit Israel and
then travel to Egypt and Jor-
dan, an administration official
said.
Kelly will arrive in the Mid-
dle East from Stockholm,
where he is to attend a U.S.-
Soviet meeting on Afghanis-
tan this weekend, the official
said.
Margaret Tutwiler also read
a statement welcoming the
Israeli Cabinet's decision Sun-
day to continue supporting
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's peace initiative.
"We welcome the Israeli
Cabinet reaffirmation of its
May 14 proposal lor elections
and negotiations, and see in
this the commitment of the
Israeli government to move
forward a comprehensive reso-
lution of the Arab-Israeli con-
flict," she said.
Under the Israeli plan,
Palestinians would elect lead-
ers in the administered terri-
tories to negotiate autonomy
measures with the Israelis.
That could then lead to talks to
resolve the final status of the
territories.
"a setback but not a defeat."
It said it would begin mobiliz-
ing support in Israel for a law
allowing Reform and Conser-
vative rabbis to officiate at
weddings.
The United Synagogue of
America, the association of
Conservative congregations,
took a similar stand. Its presi-
dent, Franklin Kreutzer, of
Miami, said, "We will no lon-
ger tolerate Conservative
Judaism being accorded less
validity in Israel than Ortho-
doxy."

"Who Is A Jew?"
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The "Who Is a Jew" issue
suddenly and dramatically resurfaced, when Israel's high-
est court ruled that the Interior Ministry must register
non-Orthodox converts as Jewish citizens.
Orthodox rabbis and politicians immediately called for
new legislation that would reverse the court's decision by
specifying that those accepted as citizens under Israel's
Law of Return undergo Orthodox conversion.
The same Orthodox leaders welcomed a separate High
Court of Justice ruling, also issued Monday, in which the
justices flatly and unanimously rejected efforts by non-
Orthodox rabbis to gain official status as marriage regi-
strars in Israel.
The 4-1 decision in effect reaffirms the court's earlier
ruling in the case of Shoshana Miller, a Reform convert
who in 1986 gained the right to be registered as a Jew on
her nationality card.
In a summation of the majority decision, the court's
president, Justice Meir Shamgar, said Israel's Interior
Ministry had no right by law to investigate the type of
conversion undergone by a prospective immigrant.

Viewpoint
Cabinet Vote Stays Crisis
This week's decision by the Israeli Cabinet
to reaffirm the Shamir plan for elections by
Palestinians resident in Judea, Samaria (the
West Bank) and Gaza does little more than
keep the delicately-balanced coalition govern-
ment in power.
That, in turn, probably eliminates the possi-
bility of elections less than one year after the
virtual tie between Likud and Labor set in
motion the manuevering which resulted in the
coalition.
Of course, right-wing hawks within the
Likud party, and left-wing doves within Labor
could yet torpedo the Cabinet vote. Likud
leaders such as Ariel Sharon and David Levy
insist on such pre-conditions for Palestinian
elections that they could never be held. Labor
still has a near majority who feel that chances
for peace cannot make progress if their party
remains in the government.
And yet there is something to be said for the
reaffirmation.
Israel can again say it is up to the PLO to
move out of the way of so-called moderate
Palestinians in the territories who would be
willing to negotiate conditions for elections.
And Washington can again put pressure on
the PLO to take the initiative in supporting
the Shamir plan, minus the Likud pre-
conditions.
Pressure for the calling of an international
peace conference, as advocated by Arafat and
Moscow, has been lessened because of the
Shamir-Peres compromise within the Cabinet.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and other
government figures may be negotiating with
the PLO, even indirectly, thus giving more
than mere lip service to his plan.
Shamir must display leadership now because
the mounting problems of "Who is a Jew?",
unemployment, now at the 10 percent mark,
and of inflation, which may approach 25
percent, may prove more of a threat to the
Jewish State than the ongoing Intifada.

Tisha B'Av Rich
In Traditions
Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.
By RABBI BERNARD S. RASKAS
Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of
the Jewish month of Av, his-
torically has been the central
day of mourning. It was first
marked when the First Temple
in Jerusalem was destroyed by
the Babylonians on this day in
586 BCE, and was reinforced
when the Second Temple was
sacked by the Roman legions
in the year 70 on the very same
day.
Traditionally, Tisha B'Av
has been said to mark the
beginning of the Crusades in
1096, the burning of the Tal-
mud in Paris in 1242 and the
start of the Inquisition in
Spain in 1480. There are many
other tragedies in Jewish his-
tory, even in modern times,

I feel compelled to respond
to David Waksman's letter
(Shomrim Against Handguns)
condemning the private pos-
session of firearms.
I am a member of both the
National Riffle Association
and Unified Sportmen of Flor-
ida. I am also a member of
North Miami Beach Mobile
Crime Patrol. I feel that NRA
and USF represent valid posi-
tions and are supportive of law
enforcement; in fact many
members are peace officers.
Mr. Waksman makes the
statement that persons not
"charged with the responsibil-
ity for protecting the commun-
ity" have no right to possess
handguns. I am not aware of
the authority for this proposi-
tion, but it is my understand-
ing that court decisions have
clearly stated that the police
have no actual responsibility
for the protection of the indi-
vidual. It is our own responsi-
bility to provide for our protec-
tion.

members of Shomrim choose

to not protect their families, or
if they live in protected sur-
roundings, then that is their
own decision. For myself, and
many thousands of other citi-
zens, other decisions may be
appropriate.
Mr. Waksman seems to
blame the killing on the streets
of our cities on the NRA. This
is ridiculous. The NRA has
always supported strong sanc-
tions against those who use
firearms unlawfully, or
unsafely.
As a member of the Jewish
community, I am aware of the
NRA view of Jews and guns.
About a year ago, in the NRA
magazine there were several
artirloa hv and about Jews and
guns. The point made was that
the efforts of the Nazis and
other anti-semitic groups to
disarm and weaken the Jewish
community have been taken
over ... by the leaders of
Jewish organizations; includ-
ing, apparently, Shomrim.
I respect Mr. Waksman's
views; I do not, however want

that have become associated
with this date.
In Jewish tradition, Tisha
B'Av has become known as the
"Black Fast," in contrast to
Yom Kippur, known as the
"White Fast."
Most striking way this is
demonstrated on the ninth of
Av is that in many Sephardic
synagogues, a black curtain is
placed over the ark containing
the Torah. By contrast, oh
Yom Kippur, white ark covers
are used.
In some synagogues, an
atmosphere of sadness is
created by dimming or turning
off completely the lights of the
synagogue and using candles
instead.
The custom of fasting on
Tisha B'Av was already
observed as early as the
second century. This was fol-
lowed by a gradual evolution,
where customs were intro-
duced to prepare for the day of
sorrow.
For example, marriages
were prohibited three weeks
prior to Tisha B'Av, and begin-
ning on the first day of Av,
some began to refrain from
eating meat and men did not
shave.
On the day itself, customs
reflected mourning-like ritu-
als: Bathing on this day was
forbidden and washing the
face and hands was only per-
mitted for purposes of cleanli-
ness.
There was also a prohibition
against wearing shoes made of
leather, and sitting on low
stools or the ground was
deemed appropriate.
Today, many of the tradi-
tions are still observed, even
sprinkling ashes on one's head,
a clear reflection of an even
more ancient mourning prac-
tice.
In addition to these tradi-
tions, various rituals have
made their way into the syna-
gogue and the service. Since
the Middle Ages, it has been
the practice not to wear tallit
and tefillin during the morning
service on Tisha B'Av.
Since these ritual objects are
traditionally considered to be
ornaments for the Jew, one
refrains from wearing them at
the normal time in the
morning but instead puts
them on at the afternoon ser-
vice, thereby fulfilling the com-
mandment that they must be
worn every day except Shab-
bat and certain holidays.
Most moving part of the ser-
vice centers about the recita-
tion of the Book of Lamenta-
tions, followed by many kinot,
or dirges, specifically com-
posed for the occasion.
There is a traditional chant
that utilizes the rise and fall of
the voice to reflect the ancient
trauma that Jews experienced
with the destruction of the
Temple. These kinot pick up
the themes of Lamentations
and refer them to other tragic
events, in Jewish history.
Interestingly enough, Tisha
B'Av, which originally com-
memorated the destruction of
the First Temple, also marks
the beginning of the form of
Judaism that has endured
throughout the ages. For it
was during this period that the
rabbinic period began to flour-
ish and the basic form and
content of Jewish thought and
practice was set.
As recorded in the Talmud
when the destruction of the
Temple neared, Rabbi
Yochanan ben Zakkai
approached the leader of the
Zealots (possibly called the
Sicarii) to find a way out of the
besieged city of Jerusalem.
The Jewish Zealots would not
permit any Jews to cross the
surrounding lines.
A method was devised
whereby Rabbi Yochanan
would be placed in a coffin and,
under the assumption that he
was a corpse, would be carried
through the battle lines by his
disciples.
At the check point out of the
city, some Zealots wanted to
put a lance through the coffin
to assure that he was dead.

Americanization of the Guralnick Family
By WILLIAM A. GRALNICK
THIS IS A STORY WITH a
beginning and a middle, but
one with no end. It is the story
of a refusenik family who went
from being unknowns to being
my family. It is a story with
elements of life and touches of
America that have made me a
better person. In this year
when American Jewry came to
grips with Russian Jewry, it is
a story that may help others.
It began simply enough: a
letter arrived on my desk from
the South Florida Conference
on Soviet Jewry. There was a
refusenik family named Gural-
nik on the roles. Would I like
to write to them?
What goes around comes
around: I had fathered Project
Lifeline Letters which in a
three year period put several
thousand American Christians
and Jews in touch with Soviet
counterparts persecuted for
their religious beliefs. Cer-
tainly, I too could write a letter
or two. Besides, family lore
taught that all the Gralnicks
whether "Gra's", or "Gura's"
or "Gro's" were related. "An
adventure", I thought.
I penned my first letter in
the style taught to others: it
was breezy with lots of chit-
chat about family, weather,
and personal trivia, though I
William A. Gralnick
omitted information about my
job. Along with the address, I
put the number one on the
letter to let the omnipresent
KBG know that someone
would be counting. I remem-
bered the old joke about the
Soviet refusenik who is awak-
ened by a knock on the door at
3 a.m. Responding to his,
"Who is it?", the reply is,
"postmen." Really KBG
agents, they then begin pep-
pering this man with questions
about why he wants to leave
the Soviet Union.
They ask about the long
meat lines. Could it be the lack
of stock in the stores? Might it
be the worthless currency? and
so on. He demurs at every
turn. None of these are the
reasons. Finally, exasperated,
the agents shout. "Well then
comrade, why is it fchat-you-
wish to leave the Soviet
Union?" The refusenik replies,
"Because I want to live in a
country where they don't
deliver the mail at
three o'clock in the morning!"
SO. ON WENT THE POSTAGE
and out of my consciousness
went the Guralniks until about
five weeks later when, lo' and
behold, arrives in my mailbox a
response replete with pictures.
At first there were four (more
about that later), and the simi-
larities with my own family
were startling. Father Arkady
was a dentist as is my own
father, my uncle, and a distant
cousin (Guralnick) in Boston.
Mother Inna was a doctor like
almost everyone else in my
family who wasn't a dentist.
Children Dina and Yuli formed
an exact age progression with
my own children, Justin and
Marc. All four children were
about 16 months apart, one
from the other, ranging in age
from, at that time, 12 to 15.
William A. Gralnick, executive director of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, Greater Miami Chapter, will be
chronicling the Americanization of his Soviet cousins
for The Jewish Floridian.
LABOR, LIKUD RIVALS TALK Jerusalem Deputy Finance Minister Yossi Beilin of
the Labor Party, left, and Deputy Foreign Minister Benyamin Natanyahu meet to discuss
mounting problems for Israel's coalition government. Likud leader Natanyahu outlined
Cabinet decision to reaffirm the Shamir election plan for Palestinians, but both deputies
worry that the Supreme Court ruling on "Who is a Jew?" could lead to religious party
withdrawals from the coalition. Beilin explained Shimon Peres' new jobs plan to his Likud
colleague. (APIWIDE World Photo)
Tisha B'Av
Continued from Page 2
They were dissuaded from this
by the suggestion that this was
unseemly.
When Rabbi Yochanan came
to the Roman camp, he
greeted the Roman general
with the formal Latin phrase,
"Vive domine Imperator"
(Long live, master Emperor).
The general, Vespasian,
replied that he was not the
emperor. Precisely at that
point a messenger from Rome
arrived to inform the general
that Nero had died and that he
was now Emperor of Rome.
Vespasian was so impressed
that he granted Rabbi
Yochanan a request. Rabbi
Yochanan then uttered the
now classic words, "Tayn li
Yavneh vechachomeha," or
"give me Yavneh and it's wise
ones." Thereupon Rabbi
Yochanan founded a seminary
at Jamnia.
Soon afterward, the semin-
ary canonized the Tanach, or
the Jewish Scriptures, and laid
down the rules upon which the
Mishnah and Talmud were
constructed. The seminary
l>egan to set the basic forms of
prayer and ritual which set the
course for Judaism. It literally
saved Judaism as it headed
into the long night of exile.
Today in Jerusalem,
hundreds of thousands gather
at the Western Wall in observ-
ance of Tisha B'Av. But while
the observances at the Kotel
are the traditional forms of
mourning, there is also an
atmosphere of celebration.
Waves of people, represent-
ing a hundred varieties of Jew-
ish communities, testify to
Jewish survival. Israel is a
Jewish state once more. Here
Tisha B'Av marks the past,
realizes the present, and hopes
for the future.
Perhaps that is why it was
written, "Those who mourn
the destruction of Jerusalem
will yet rejoice in its restora-
tion."
Rabbi Bernard S. Rnskus is
rabbi emeritus of Temple of
Anron Congregation in St.
Paul, and is author of the
trilogy "Henri of Wisdom."
We exchanged, I believe,
three or four letters. There
didn't seem to be any interrup-
tion in the mails but for one. I
got their pictures, but they
didn't get the one of me. I got
the feeling that I was nailed up
on a wall in a KBG/post office
somewhere in the suburbs of
Baku.
Parts of the letters were like
the political equivalent of the
dance of the seven veils. They
asked me a lot of questions
about what I did and how I
came to find them. I evaded
those questions. I asked them
many questions about the
problems in Baku. They sent
me an In-Tourist book. It took
about three months to arrive.
I was struck by several
things: one was the way Russi-
ans write addresses. But for
the name, the form is
reversed. Next was the Eng-
lish. Although some of it
sounded like it was right out of
the '60s classic, "The Educa-
tion of Hyman Kaplan" replete
with syntax so badly broken
that an orthopedic surgeon
would be hardpressed to fix it;
it was English none-the-less.
My Russian does not go bey-
ond da, nyet and pounding my
show on a table. Then, oddly
enough, I was struck by the
twine which wrapped it. Bill
Cosby used to talk about the
quality of grade school paper
being so poor it still had wood
chips in it. Well this twine
wouldn't pass our postal mus-
ter and the paper was stiff as a
board. It was clearly different
in quality from anything I'd
come across here, in Europe,
or Israel.
NOW CAME A CONFLUENCE OF
coincidents which in less than
a year would end eight years
of struggle for them and would
begin a new family chapter for
me.
The elements were these a
family tree completed by yet
another distantly related Gral-
nick, the convulsions in Azer-
bazian and Baku both natural
(earthquakes) and social (the
riots), and, of course, Gkumost.
Within months they combined
to produce a visa, passage to
Rome, passage to America,
and arrival at Miami Interna-
tional Airport just 24 hours
prior to a dinner where I had
intended to propose marriage
(to my wife), and 48 hours
before Pesach. En route, the
four became seven.
Here's how it happened:
Glasnost produced the open-
ing. Mother, father, two chil-
dren and three grandparents
Yugenia, Elizabeth, and
Samuel were granted exit
visas. The family tree, being
done as a doctoral project,
established the link for the
invitation (my father's father
and Arkady's father appear to
be cousins of some sort though
actually that branch, it's
leaves and twigs, was not on
the sheet of paper); the riots
provided the Embassy with
the reason to pass the family
through Italy into America
(Arkady had been caught in
the trouble, his car over-
turned, and burned. Recogniz-
ing opportunity in adversity,
Yuly took pictures of the
riots.) Suddenly, they were out
of my mailbox and into my
arms. The date was Monday
April 17, 1989.
But that's Exodus and that
comes next.
Battle Over Child Care Bills
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON, (JTA) A number of Jewish groups
are unhappy that a bill providing federal funds for
sectarian day-care programs is making its way through the
House of Representatives, after a similar bill cleared the
Senate.
Hawkins' bill "would allow sectarian institutions to use
federal funds in appropriate ways, to support nonsectarian
services," according to Judith Golub, assistant Washington
representative of the American Jewish Committee.
Other groups preferring the Hawkins language are the
American Jewish Congress, B'nai B'rith Women, Council
of Jewish Federations, Na'amat Women, National Council
of Jewish Women and Union of American Hebrew Congre-
gations.

Israel Reopens West Bank Schools
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM, (JTA) Some 200,000 Palestinian chil-
dren went back to school this week, as Israeli authorities
opened West Bank schools for the first time since Jan. 20.
Israel had closed the schools for most of the 19 months of
the Palestinian uprising, on the grounds that they served
as bases for violent demonstrations.
Israeli authorities said the reopening went smoothly,
despite a general strike in the territories, with about
183,000 elementary-school students and some 10,700 high-
school seniors returning to class.

Hadassah Urges Fight On Abortion Issue
ATLANTA Hadassah, the
Women's Zionist Organization
of America, has called on its
1,50(1 chapters and groups
across the country to imple-
ment a nationwide, grassroots
strategy aimed at preserving
women's reproductive rights.
In an "Action Alert" issued
to delegates at the organiza-
tion's 75th National Conven-
tion here. Hadassah directed
its chapters and groups to take
six specific steps to combat
increasing attempts to curb
women's freedom of reproduc-
tive choice in the wake of the
controversial Supreme Court
decision on the question.
Hadassah also affirmed its
policy statement, first adopted
in 1981, calling freedom of
choice "a matter of privacy of
the individual, to be deter-
mined by each women in
accordance with her religious,
moral and ethical values."
Six-point strategy disclosed
by Hadassah calls on chapters
to "educate the Jewish and
non-Jewish communities to
understand the traditional
Jewish reverence for the sanc-
tity of life" and "traditional
Jewish guidelines regarding
pregnancy and abortion," and
"at the same time reiterate
our support for the freedom of
reproductive choice."
Document also urges Hadas-
sah chapters to join other
"freedom of choice advocacy
groups" such as "local Jewish
Community Relations Coun-
cils, National Organization for
Women (NOW), Planned Par-
enthood, and National Abor-
tion Rights Action League
(NARAD"
In addition, the "alert" calls
on Hadassah members to
become knowledgeable about
state laws on abortion and the
positions on reproductive
choice of candidates for state
legislatures. It also recom-
mends that members inform
candidates of "our individual
and organizational position"
on reproductive rights and
oppose state referenda "aimed
at restricting rights of women
during pregnancy."
Hadassah is the nation's
largest independent Jewish
women's group. Its 385,000
members include women of all
ages, backgrounds, political
beliefs and streams of
Judaism.
The Hadassah National
Board unanimously endosed
the action taken in meetings
held prior to the opening of the
national convention.

Cabinet Reaffirms Peace Plan
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM, (JTA) -
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir delivered a stinging rebuff
to Likud party hard-liners this
week, as he convinced both
Labor and Likud members of
the Cabinet to reaffirm his
peace initiative.
The Cabinet voted 21-4 to
reaffirm the peace plan "with-
out additions or amend-
ments." The Cabinet further
resolved that it "will act in
accordance with this peace ini-
tiative, which is binding upon
t he ('abinet and its members."
The vote seems to resolve
the crisis within Israel's unity
coalition government that
arose after the Likud Central
Committee appended a series
of hard-line conditions to the
initiative on July 5.
Labor had threatened to dis-
solve the unity government if
US, Israel
Trade Talks
Hit Snag
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Bush administration has
rejected an Israeli formula for
both countries to phase out all
remaining tariffs on non-
military goods, U.S. and
Israeli sources confirmed here.
But the United States has
agreed to consider an Israeli
proposal to eliminate Customs
user fees on services provided
to goods entering the other's
country, as proposed in trade
legislation currently before
Congress.
Those decisions were made
in Jerusalem two weeks ago at
the biannual U.S.-Israeli trade
talks set up to monitor the
1985 Free Trade Area agree-
ment. Under the accord, both
countries are supposed to lift
all tariffs on non-defense
goods by Jan. 1, 1995.
Most tariffs on such goods
have been lifted. But those on
products that either country
considers most import-
sensitive are not expected to
be phased out before 1995.
The United States considers
farm products particularly
import-sensitive. An Israeli
Embassy official here who
attended the talks accused the
Bush administration of suc-
cumbing to pressure from pro-
agriculture members of Con-
gress and lobbying groups
such as the California Tomato
Growers Association-, which
opposed removing U.S. tariffs
on Israeli tomato paste.
U.S. lobbying groups also
are concerned about the pro-
spect of duty-free Israeli oni-
ons and concentrated orange
juice, the Israeli said.
Newspapers:
Freedom in
Our Hands
the conditions were to be con-
sidered amendments to the
peace plan, which the Cabinet
formally approved May 14.
Voting against the decision
were the three Likud ministers
who instigated the effort to
add tough conditions to the
peace plan: Industry and
Trade Minister Ariel Sharon.
Construction and Housing
Minister David Levy, and Eco-
nomics and Planning Minister
Yitzhak Moda'i.
Also voting against the Cab-
inet's decision to reaffirm the
peace plan was Science and
Development Minister Ezer
Weizman of Labor, who once
again called for direct talks
l>etween Israel and the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
Another Labor dove, Minis-
ter-Without-Portfolio Raphael
Edri, abstained.
Moda'i raised the legal objec-
tion that the Cabinet was
barred from voting on a previ-
ously adopted decision, but
Shamir brushed it aside.
Speaking to reporters after
the vote, Levy seemed to con-
cede a tactical defeat for those
who see the initiative as a
danger to Israel. But he added,
ominously, "We shall yet see
whether the Likud's (Central
Committee) decision has been
erased."
"Those who opposed the
peace initiative last time
and agree to it only with the
Likud constraints opposed it
once again today," he said.
Ehud Olmert, a Cabinet min-
ister without portfolio who is a
close adviser to Shamir,
attempted after the meeting to
argue that Shamir and the
majority of Likud ministers
had not contravened the condi-
tions adopted by the Central
Committee.

DEVARIM
DEVARIM The first few verses introduce the entire book of
Deuteronomy, which contains Moses' address to the Israelites in
Transjordan after the defeat of the Amorites and Bashan. In this
siieech Moses summarizes the Torah as a whole. He reviews the
causes that had led him to appoint judges and officials: "How can
I myself alone bear your cumbrance. and your burden, and your
strife? And I charged your judges at that time, saying: 'Hear
the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between
a man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. Ye shall
not respect persons in judgment; ye shall hear the small and the
great alike' (Dniteronomu 1.1217).
Moses goes on to review the incident of the scouts sent to spy on
Canaan, and the consequences of their pessimistic report. He
reminds the Israelites how they had skirted Edom, Ammon, and
Moab; and mentions the peoples who had formerly inhabited
those regions. Finally, he recounts the story of the conquest of
Transjordan, and the partition of the area between the tribes of
Keuben, (lad. and half of the triln' of Manasseh

tee, welcomed the decision on
converts, saying it "helps to
preserve the unity of the Jew-
ish people so essential to Israel
at this critical time."
Phil Baum, associate execu-
tive vice president of the
American Jewish Congress,
another non-affiliated group,
said the decision on converts
"is a welcome affirmation that
the common bonds of Jewish
history and fate have endured
and continue to bind us into
one people."
Likewise, Thomas Neu-
mann, executive vice president
of B'nai B'rith International,
called the ruling on converts
"a victory for tolerance and
pluralism that will enhance
Jewish unity and enable a
greater number of American
Jews to identify more strongly
with the State of Israel."
"We look forward to the day
when all branches of Judaism
will truly by equal in the Jew-
ish state," he said.
But Rabbi Moshe Sherer,
president of the Orthodox
Agudath Israel of America,
said the High Court's rulings
are incongruous.
"On the one hand, it places a
'stop sign' at Israel's borders
to halt non-Orthodox rabbis
from performing marriages in
Israel," he said.
On the other hand, the court
"places a 'welcome sign' at
Israel's borders for the fruits
of these halachically invalid
practices, such as quickie con-
versions, so long as they are
performed in the United
States by these same rabbis."
Rabbi Marc Angel, vice pres-
ident of the Rabbinical Council
of America, said his Orthodox
organization "supports the
position of the Chief Rabbinate
in Israel, which is that all
ceremonies relating to Jewish
identity and family life must be
performed according to hala-
cha.
"Dissension on these mat-
ters on the part of the non-
Orthodox is undermining the
foundation of Jewish life as we
have known it for thousands of
years," he said.
