describing his release from

that he had flung himself in-

continue on his way because
his escorts tried to con-
fiscate a book of Psalms that
his wife had sent him from
"They took all my posses-
sions from me," he said on
Israeli television, speaking
in Hebrew. "I said I would
not leave the country
without the Psalms, which
helped me so much. I lav
down in the snow and said,
'Not another step.' "

When I married my wife
I had an ideal
Aa image before
that earned very real.
Somewhat like my mother
self-willed and strong
A capable young woman
who rarely seemed wrong.
When I married my husband
I had an ideal
Aa image before me
that seemed very real.
Somewhat like my father
be was warm with compassion.
Both quiet and gentle
in his own fashion.
She'd keep our house dean
she'd always be pretty.
And when there was company
she'd make herself witty.
He appeared to be smart
to allay all my fears.
A promising student
with a choice of careers.
She'd care for our children
she'd prepare ail our meals
An emotional support
in all business deals.
He promised so ranch
to fill all my needs.
As fresh mountain waters
gives life to spring seeds.
He'd nurture my growth
and help me to bloom
By providing me space
and giving me room.
All things Ob us then
we've been so mistaken
Our marital image
Has badly been shaken
She screams and she yells
when I come home at night.
And just before dinner
we get into a fight.
He's critical of me
and my ego's deflating.
There is not a time
when she's not berating.
We thought we had confidence
assuredness and self-esteem
and now we are feeling.
Things are not what they seem.
Our vows were still cherished
we were in need of direction.
Our then faltering marriage
well worth it's protection.
Through a listening ear
we are now more realistic
And the images before us
are much leas simplistic
Through observant eyes
We've come to our senses
We've learned in ways
to lower our defenses.
Through a helping hand
our past is behind.
Thus the future unveils
for us now to find.

Inverrary Golf Event Most Successful Yet
The Fifth Annual Inverrary
Division Golf Tournament was by
far the most successful one to
date. The tournament, held as
part of the Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
in Inverrary, took place on Feb.
12 at the Inverrary Country Club.
"A record number of pledges
boosted the campaign to 70 per-
cent of its 1986 goal," according
to Max Buck, Inverrary Division
chairman. The dinner followed a
day of golfing which featured
about 200 irolfera playing the East
and West courses. Two prizes of
$10,000 for a hole-in-one, on
designated holes on each course,
were a special attraction.
The odds held up, reported Selig
Marko, chairman of the day's ac-
tivities. Nobody hit a hole-in-one,
he said, though the excitement
was electrifying.
Donors of the $10,000 prizes
were Harold Slater and Victor
Gruman. The latter is a former
president of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish Federation.
Both men are Inverrary residents.
Guest speaker was Gideon
Pelig, an Israeli activist, whose
career dated back to British-rule
Chairman of the Tournament
was Ed Rabat. The dinner Chair-
man was Bill Sussman. Ben
Strassner served as prize
Kenneth Kent, associate cam-
paign director, provided the pro-
fessional assistance.
THE WOMEN'S DIVISION will hold a first-
ever golf and tennis tournament and luncheon

Pge 4 The Jewish Fforidian of Greater Fort LaudenJale/Friday, February 28, 1386
A Day of Infamy
It is 10 years since the UN
General Assembly committed the
"obscene act' of passing the resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism. President Chaim Herzog
was then Israel's ambassador at
the UN and he recalls here the
dramatic events and political
cynicism that surrounded the
debate. Judy Siegel-Itxkovich, the
Jerusalem Post, reports.
As he walked to the podium he
waa nervous and excited. But he
electrified his audience with a
powerful speech, bringing it to a
close with an unprecedented
dramatic gesture.
To the cheering of spectators in
the gallery and part of the hail, he
returned to his seat, bathed in
sweat and physically shaking. His
wife, to fortify him until the end of
the session, sent him chocolate
bars by messenger.
Chaim Herzog's single-handed
defense of Zionism and the State
of Israel in the UN General
Assembly 10 years ago remains
vividly etched in his mind. Her-
zog, then Israel's ambassador to
the UN and now president of
Israel, regards that November
morning in New York as one of
the highlights of his career and
one of those occasions when the
Jewish people fought back against
an evil majority.
Herzog, reminiscing in his Beit
Hanassi office recently, extracts a
folded card from his wallet. He
has carried it there, he says, for a
whole decade since that momen-
tous occasion. Produced by B'nai
B'rith's Anti-Defamation League,
it declares: "Keep this scorecard
with you. It will remind you who
your friends are." Inside is a list
of the 72 UN member nations that
voted for Resolution 3379, which
declares that "Zionism is a form
of racism and racial
Herzog himself underlined
those states that voted for the
resolution despite the fact that
they had diplomatic relations with
Israel. The 35 countries that voted
against, the 32 that abstained and
the three that chose to absent
themselves are also noted.
"I've used this list a lot, says
Herzog. "When I encountered
leaders from countries that voted
against us, I showed them the
record and placed them on the
"For us the Jewish people
this resolution, based on hatred,
falsehood and arrogance, is devoid
of any moral or legal value. For us
the Jewish people this is no
more than a piece of paper, and
we shall treat it as such, Herzog
thundered at the end of his
historic, 30-minute speech.
He then proceeded to tear a
copy of the resolution into pieces,
a fitting climax to a powerful ad-
dress, and one that caught the at-
tention of the world.
Now, sitting in his residence in
Jerusalem, Herzog recalls the in-
spiration for that dramatic
"The day before, when I was sit-
ting at home for hours dictating
the speech, I wondered to myself
how I could give it maximum ef-
fect. I remembered my father (the
late Chief Rabbi Isaac Yitzhak
Halevy Herzog) having torn up
the British White Paper in the
Yeshurun Synagogue in 1939."
Coincidentally, Herzog's wife,
Aura, was also curious about his
presentation the following morn-
ing and suggested ripping up the
resolution like his father.
"I didn't tell anyone, so it
caught everyone, including the
photographers, by surprise," says
Herzog. Someone had the torn
resolution framed, along with a
photograph of him at the UN
podium. "I suppose one day I'll
leave it to someone who's
The reaction to Israel's denigra-
tion of the infamous resolution
was immediate: "The entire
speech was shown three times on
Public Broadcasting in New York.
The next day, a weekday, 150,000
Jews demonstrated against the
UN in the garment district.
"Do you know how impressive
150,000 people are? Why, there
are only 40,000 seats in the Ramat
Can Stadium! I was getting two
sacks of mail a day from Jews and
non-Jews around the world. The
event did more for Zionism than
Jews getting a million speeches
from Zionist functionaries. People
went around with buttons declar-
ing 'I am a Zionist' and the issue
was headline news," Herzog
But surprisingly, "Moynihan
told me that some minor countries
admitted to having been offered
sums of money for voting against
Israel and they took it," says
In fact, "one African country
told us that Kuwait threatened to
cut off its oil supplies if it voted
against the resolution. Zvi Dins-
tein, then the deputy finance
minister in charge of Israel's oil
supplies, was instructed to ar-
range for alternate supplies for
that country," Herzog reveals for
the first time.
But American Jewry apparently
didn't take the threat seriously,
perhaps seeing it as just another
Third World and Soviet attack on
Israel at the UN. On October 24,
Herzog addressed the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, making his
first appearance before that group
of Jewish organizational leaders.
"I took them to task," he
recalls. "I said this was the moat
serious attack on Jewry since
Hitler, right in front of our noses.
What have you done about it? I
demanded to know. Even the Ger-
man ambassador asked me why
there was no Jewish reaction.
"I went on that Israelis were
upset about the strike in Aahdod
port at a time when Israel's
enemies were saying Israel had no
right to Aahdod. I said the public
was concentrating on the El Al
strike when Israel's enemies had
declared the state, and not just an
airline, illegitimate."

Herzog's reproach of the

Jerusalem, "it was proposed in

"All involved moved into high
gear," says Herzog. "Ambassador
Moynihan went around personally
to the editorial offices of all the
major papers, including The
Times, asking them to fight the
issue. Then American Jewry woke
up. I was flooded with cables and
mail, a virtual avalanche."
All the activity abroad galvaniz-

realize that something was wrong
and began to react," says Herzog.
He cites then-foreign minister
Yigal Allon as backing him all the

"Moynihan told me that some
minor countries admitted to hav-
ing been offered sums of money
for voting against Israel and
they took it," says Herzog.
In fact, "one African country
told us that Kuwait threatened to
cut off its oil supplies if it voted
against the resolution. Zvi Dins-
tein, then the deputy finance
minister in charge of Israel's oil
supplies, was instructed to ar-
range for alternate supplies for
that country," Herzog reveals for
the first time.
But American Jewry apparently

Third World and Soviet attack on
Israel at the UN. On October 24,
Herzog addressed the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, making his
first appearance before that group
of Jewish organizational leaders.
"I took them to task," he
recalls. "I said this was the most
serious attack on Jewry since
Hitler, right in front of our noses.
What have you done about it? I
demanded to know. Even the Ger-
man ambassador asked me why
there was no Jewish reaction.
"I went on that Israelis were
upset about the strike in Aahdod
port at a time when Israel's
enemies were saying Israel had no
right to Aahdod. I said the public
was concentrating on the El Al
strike when Israel's enemies had
declared the state, and not just an
airline, illegitimate."
Herzog's reproach of the
American Jewish leaders hit The
New York Times the next day.

plied, in which freedom of speech,

guaranteed, in which even

our national aims are represented

At the end, Herzog emphasized
that Israel was asking for the re-
jection of the resolution not as a
supplicant. "Vote as your moral
conscience dictates to you ... The

The Tax Benefits of Charitable Contributions
Editor's Note: The following it
written by Sheldon S. Polish of
Ernst & Whinney, Certified
Public Accountants, 1 Corporate
Plaza, Fort Lauderdale. Polish is
the Treasurer of the Jewish
Federation. For further informa-
tion, contact Janice Salit, Federa-
tion office, 748-8400.
The U.S. government has en-
couraged individuals to make
charitable contributions to
qualified organizations by permit-
ting deductions from adjusted
gross income. Charitable con-
tributions by individuals reduce
the government's social obliga-
tions as well as the tax cost of
fulfilling those obligations. Tax
laws regarding charitable con-
tributions are complex and the tax
benefits from charitable contribu-
tions depend upon such matters as
the type of property donated and
the manner in which the donations
are made.
She 'Touched the Stars'
A Short, But Very Full Life
While it was a life all too short,
Judy Resnik's years were very full
with accomplishment and
Resnik was flying her second
shuttle mission. Her first was on
the maiden voyage of the shuttle
Discovery in August 1984. That
trip made her the second
American woman to fly in space,
after Sally Ride. During that mis-
sion, Resnik logged 144 hours in
Resnik earned a bachelor of
science degree in electrical
engineering from Carnegie-
Mellon University in Pittsburgh
and a doctorate in electrical
engineering from the University
of Maryland. Resnik was divorced
from her husband, a Washington
Before becoming an astronaut,
Resnik worked as a design
engineer at the RCA Missile and
Surface Radar Division in
Moorestown, N.J. from 1970 to
1971. She developed custom in-
tegrated circuitry for radar
From 1974-77, Resnik was a bio-
medical engineer and staff fellow
in the laboratory of neuro-
physiology at the National In-
stitute of Health, Bethesda, Md.
Just before she was selected by
NASA in 1978, she was a senior
systems engineer in product
development with Xerox Corp. at
El Segundo, Calif.
Somehow though, she still found
time to become a classical pianist
and enjoy "bicycling, running and
flying in her free time."
In 1978, Resnik, then 28, was
selected as one of six women
among 35 candidates to be space-
shuttle astronauts.
Before her first flight, she told
an interviewer that she did not
want to be thought of as a woman
astronaut or a Jewish astronaut,
but as just another astronaut,
The astronaut's Jewish
background stems from Kiev,
Russia, which her paternal grand-
parents fled in the 1920s. They
settled in Palestine, where her
father attended a yeshiva; later,
the family moved to Cleveland,
Ohio, where her grandfather,
Jacob, was a shochet, and her
grandmother, Anna, "devoted all
her life to Jewish and Israeli
causes." Her father, optometrist
Dr. Marvin Resnik, is active in
many Jewish causes.
In Cleveland, astronaut Resnik
attended Hebrew school. She
became Bat Mitzvah but was not
strictly observant.
"While religion played little
part in Judy's life, and she
resented being referred to as the
'Jewish astronaut,' there's no
Question that she felt Jewish and
Astronaut Judy Resnik
knew she was Jewish," said
Resnik's father, who was reached
at his Akron home by Jerusalem
Post reporter Walter Ruby.
Marvin Resnik told Ruby that
"despite what happened, I feel
that the space program should
definitely continue, and Judy
would feel the same way."
He said his daughter had told
him that "she was in an at-
mosphere where everyone is a
scientist, and actually none of
them has anything to do with
religion Jewish, Protestant or
Marvin Resnik added that she
had "encountered no anti-
Semitism or anti-female (at-
titudes) in the space program."
"She kept as low a profile as
possible, which is one reason why
she resented being called a Jewish
astronaut," Marvin Resnik said.
He added that being an astronaut
"was her whole religion."
"Everyone in the family is in
shock," her uncle, David Resnik,
told the Cleveland Jewish News.
Twenty members of her family
were at the launch pad each time
the space shuttle Discovery was
scheduled for liftoff. They com-
prised a show of confidence for
the astronaut who doubted when
she applied in 1977 that she'd be
selected for the space program.
Among that group was Judy's
father and his wife, Betty, who
came down from Akron. Also on
hand was Judy's mother, who ar-
rived from Cleveland.
Resnik's primary assignment on
her Discovery mission, was to test
the solar array, an 102-foot struc-
ture that she remotely unfurled
and retracted several times from
the shuttle's cargo bay.
Why did Judy Resnik become an
astronaut? Because, she said, she
"saw a chance to keep moving in-
to the newest technical fields."
Rabbi David Horowitz, religious
leader of Temple Israel in Akron,
where Marvin Resnik is a
member, said, "The Jewish com-
munity shared Judith Resnik's
triumph, and now we share her
Section 170 of the 1954 Internal
Revenue Code provides for itemiz-
ed deductions of contributions by
individuals to qualified charitable
organizations. Percentage limita-
tions vary according to the type of
property contributed. The limit on
deducibility of contributions of
ordinary income property (proper-
ty which would require the repor-
ting of ordinary income upon sale)
is usually the basis of the proper-
ty. The limit on deductibility of
capital gain property (property
which would require the reporting
of capital gain upon sale) is usually
the fair market value of the
Many individuals fail to
recognize the tax advantage of
donating appreciated property in-
stead of selling the property and
donating the post tax proceeds
from the sale. Assume that an in-
dividual is in the 50 percent tax
bracket and wishes to minimize
taxes on $20,000 worth of income
through making a charitable con-
tribution. The individual has long
term capital gain property (for
which the 60 percent long term
capital gain deduction would app-
ly upon a sale) with a fair market
value of $20,000 and an adjusted
basis of $10,000. The individual
could donate the appreciated pro-
perty to a qualifying public
organization and generally deduct
$20,000 as a charitable contribu-
tion. The $20,000 deduction
eliminates all income taxes on
$20,000 worth of income.
However, the individual would
have to pay $3,000 in income
taxes on the $20,000 of income if
he sells the appreciated property
and donates the poet tax proceeds
to a qualifying charity. The long
term capital gain upon the sale of
the property is $10,000 and the
taxable portion of this gain is
$4,000 because of the 60 percent
long term capital gain deduction.
The income tax paid on the $4,000
gain is $2,000 ($4,000 X 50 per-
cent rate equals $2,000). The
$2,000 of federal income tax is not
deductible, so the individual may
deuct only the $18,000 post tax
proceeds which he donates. The
charitable contribution deduction
is limited to $18,000 so the tax-
payer must pay additional income
taxes on the $2,000 excess of the
$20,000 of income over the
$18,000 of deductions. The tax on
the $2,000 excess is $1,000
($2,000 X 50 percent equals
$1,000). The individual thus pays
$3,000 of income taxes on the
$20,000 of income for the right to
sell the appreciated property and
make a cash contribution! The in-
dividual pays no taxes on the
$20,000 of income if he makes a
direct donation of the appreciated
Some taxpayers do not make
charitable contributions because
they cannot accumulate enough
itemized deductions to exceed
their zero bracket amounts. Sec-
tion 170(i) indicates that
nonitemizers may deduct all direct
charitable contributions from ad-
justed gross income during 1986.
However, Section 70(i) will expire
in 1987.
The manner in which taxpayers
contribute property as well as the
type of property contributed af-
fect the amount of deduction for a
charitable contribution. As
previously illustrated, the manner
of donating appreciated property
affects the amount deducted. Tax-
payers may deduct untaxed ap-
preciation for donation of long
term capital gain property, but
only their basis in donations of or-
dinary income property. These
rules as well as proposed changes
in tax laws provide good reason
for consultation with qualified tax
personnel before making
charitable contributions.

Sharon Settles with Time
TEL AVIV Ariel Sharon
agreed to drop his libel suit
against Time magazine in the
district court here as part of an
out-of-court settlement in which
Time is to share in Sharon's
lawyers' fees and court costs.
Sharon's Tel Aviv action began
in early 1983, when he sued the
European edition of Time for
$250,000. At the same time, he fil-
ed a $50 million suit against the
U.S. edition in New York.
Both actions followed a report
in Time that Sharon had discussed
the need for the Phalangists to
avenge the death of Lebanese
president-elect Bashir Jemayel.
The alleged conversation took
place before the Phalangists car-
ried out massacres in the Palesti-
nian refugee camps of Sabra and
Shatilla in West Beirut in
September 1982. Time reported
that the discussion had been noted
in a secret appendix to the Kahan
Commission report on the
A New York jury last year
found that Time's report was false
and defamatory. But it rejected
Sharon's suit, finding that he had
not proved that the magazine had
acted with "actual malice" as re-
quired by U.S. law.
Last September, the Tel Aviv
court adopted the New York
jury's findings that the Time story
was false and defamatory. But its
decision on whether Sharon had
been libelled was pending. Under
Israeli law Sharon would not have
had to prove that Time had acted
with malice.

UJA Gifts in Action ...
Editor's Note: Jewish Federation controller Marilynn Levine of Plan-
tation recently participated in the Council of Jewish Federations Con-
trollers Institute Mission to Israel. The country's controllers visited
UJA beneficiaries and agencies to learn firsthand how funds raised by
the Federation/UJA are spent in Israel.
Pictured are students at the Bnei Akiva Yeshiva High School in Kfar
Maimon which is supported by funds from the Youth Aliyah program.
Teenagers who have come to Israel alone and have no families (as in the
case of the Ethiopian youth) or those from financially depressed families
are housed at this campus for twelve months a year. They attend classes
until 8.Q0 p.m., and have all meals there living in sparsely decorated, but
comfortable dormatories.
The Mevasseret Zion, the largest absorption center in Israel housing
l,tO0 residents. All new immigrants are housed for six months and given
six hours instruction in ulpan everyday so that they will be able to func-
tion in Israeli tociety. Those coming to the country without belongings,
such as those from Russia are also clothed and given loans. This pre-
school class was being taught shapes and colors, all in Hebrew. Although
the classes were well equipped, the apartments provided were merely
adequate for tleeping and eating.

Project Renewal:
We Can Make the Difference
PROJECT RENEWAL is a comprehensive program to
rehabilitate Israel's neediest communities. It's a special partner-
ship between American Jewry and Israelis to close the social gap
by rebuilding and revitalizing these neighborhoods through
educational, social and physical development programs and the
physical renovation and construction of housing and community
Project Renewal means hope, friendship and planning together
for today and tomorrow. Project Renewal is an opportunity for
our community to join with other American Jewish communities
and the people of Israel in a people-to-people effort to strengthen
Project Renewal has touched the lives of 400,000 Jews since the
program began in 1978. It has revitalized communities and im-
proved their self-image.
But we haven't finished the job.
Jewish children wait for after-school recreation programs.
Their mothers still need basic Hebrew literacy classes.
Fathers seek to improve their family's home. Grandparents
look forward to seeing friends at the senior citizens dab. And
neighborhoods await the opportunity to change from distress-
ed to dynamic.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort LauderdaUs Project
Renewal city is Kfar Saba, Israel. Through the efforts of our Pro-
ject Renewal chairman, AlveraA. Gold, and a host of dedicated in-
dividuals, Kfar Saba has grown from a struggling ghetto to a
thriving neighborhood. Still, much more needs to be done.

Peres Appeals to USSR for Mideast Peace
Shimon Peres, the first Prime
Minister of Israel to visit the
former capital of the Third Reich,
used that occasion to appeal to the
Soviet Union, whose armies he
acknowledged contributed mighti-
ly to the downfall of Hitler, to
allow those Jews who so wish to
leave the USSR and to play a
positive role in the pursuit of
peace in the Middle East.
Peres, ending a three-day of-
ficial visit to West Germany, was
greeted at the city hall by West
Berlin Mayor Eberhard Diepgen.
Later, at a dinner in his honor, he
said: "Let me use this rostrum in
the city where Nazi leadership had
its formidable start and its
shameful end brought about by
the Red Army as well to call
upon the new leadership of the
Soviet Union not to forget the
common suffering of both of our
peoples Let those who surviv-
ed movethe Berlin Wall nearby,
Peres referred to the Jews of
Eastern Europe. "This physical
barrier separates also two parts of
the Jewish people," he said. He
added, "No wall can block the
hopes of the people to get
together and to exchange ideas
and views."
In a paraphrase of President
John Kennedy's famous remark at
the same spot more than two
decades ago Ich bin ein
Berliner Peres said, "I am from
Jerusalem, not from Berlin. I can
tell you a lot about an experience
of 2,000 years with walls and bar-
riers. Walls come and walls go,
but the will of the people
Peres met with a group of Ger-
man students to answer their
questions which ranged from the
Arab-Israel conflict to recent
manifestations of anti-Semitism in
West Berlin and in the Federal
Republic. The students mounted
an impressive exhibition on the

They questioned the Premier
about the recently produced play
by the late Rainer Werner
Fassbinder "Garbage, the City
and Death" in which a
character identified as a wealthy
Jew was depicted as a villain and
exploiter of the poor.
Peres said, "it is primarily a
German problem to fight anti-
Semitism. Whenever there is anti-
Semitism, Germans should be con-
cerned. It is your awareness and
reactions that count. Anti-
Semitism in itself was never the
real problem, but rather the lack
of will and resolve of the
mainstream groups fighting it."
Peres was asked by a German
student at one point why he had
not become the poet he had hoped
to be in his youth. "I was not good
enough," he said. "Probably by
mistake I become a politician, and
it became tod late to change. My
most important concern and
desire is to bring peace to the Mid-
dle East."

The New Israelis
Faces of privation are not new
to the world. New photos,
however, rarely record the transi-
tion from starvation to good
health. In Israel, with an
estimated 15,000 Jewish im-
migrants from famine-stricken
Ethiopia, that transition is watch-
ed day by day as sunken cheeks fill
out and matchstick arms gain
flesh and contour.
The pleasure of watching hell
fade from the eyes of a haunted
people is universal and unreserv-
ed. There are reservations,
however, about what will happen
when the Ethiopians begin to join
the mainstream of Israeli society.
Although most Israelis welcome
the Ethiopian immigrants as
fellow Jews, Israelis, generally,
are not sentimental about im-
migrants. Many Israelis, who
have gone through the immigrant
experience themselves and have
watched successive waves of
others going through it, eye the
Ethiopians and wonder what new
problems they will engender.
The newest immigrants arrived
in the midst of an economic crisis.
Israel, anticipating increasing
unemployment among both un-
skilled and semi-skilled workers,
is propelling itself toward greater
reliance on high-technology in-
dustrial development. Can the
Ethiopians be expected to leap, in
a single generation, from desert
wastelands to positions in
technologically advanced
An even more sensitive and per-
vasive concern is a social one.
"It's all right now," said one
Israeli not unkindly as he watched
a group of Ethiopian children in a
playground, "because everyone
wants to see them become strong
and healthy. But later whom
will they marry?"
Israel, unique in its roots and in
the variety of human experiences
it encompasses, carries the limita-
tions as well as the wisdom of its
history. Both the wisdom and the
limitations will shape the future of
the newest immigrants who are
now emerging from the grinding
isolation and privation of their
haunted past.

Today, Mayer said, "Jews
marry for themselves, not for

More freedom in choosing one's
mate makes it possible to find
greater satisfaction in marriage,
he said, but it also makes mar-
riage more precarious.
Mayer said he is concerned not
so much about what intermar-
riage portends for the future of
Judaism, but about what it
portends for the future of mar-
riage itself.
"The real problem is that stable
and harmonious marriages are so

rate for intermarriages without
conversion is about 50 percent
"four or five times as great as the
divorce rate between two Jews."
"Conversionary marriages
seem to be just as stable as mar-
riages between two people from
the same background," he added.
Mayer said he rejects the notion
that intermarriage inevitably
leads to ever-greater assimilation
and a net loss of Jews in this
"We're living in an open and
pluralistic society," he said.
"Maybe we don't have to accept
our losses. Maybe we will be able
to welcome the non-Jews who
come in.
"Intermarriage poses a very
profound challenge to the Jewish
community to respond, to make it
possible for Jews who intermarry
to remain within the Jewish com-
munity and bring their non-Jewish
partners into the fold, ultimately
through conversion, and raise
their children as Jews."
Putting the problem in historic
perspective, Mayer pointed out
that "for 1,600 years, Jews were
forbidden to proselytize or accept
converts. We've gotten very out
of touch with the whole
"We've become very suspicious
of Jews who opt in much more
so than of Jews who opt out," he
said. "I think that we have have
not fully made our peace with the
notion that, just as it is possible
for Jews to assimilate out, it's
possible for non-Jews to
assimilate in.
"I tend to be somewhat op-
timistic," he said, "that Jews will
become much more confortable
with the integration of non-
He singled out the Jewish Con-
verts Network, founded by
Philadelphia!! Lena Romanoff, as
an example of the kind of program
that can facilitate that
"The more we have such
groups," Mayer said, "the greater
the possibility that intermarriage
will not diminish our ranks."
As the rate of intermarriage in-
creases, Jewish community
studies show that "at this point,
slightly more Jewish men are mar-
rying out," Mayer reported. "But
the women are catching up.
There's no question about it."
The interesting thing is that,
when it comes to conversion, it
still remains the case that the
overwhelming majority of con-
verts are women," he said.
Some 80 percent of all converts
are women, he said. Only a small
percentage of non-Jewish inter-
married men convert. The pro-
bable reason, he speculated, is
that "children born of a Jewish
mother are automatically Jewish.
That's a much more significant
reason than a fear of circumcision.
"There's a kind of subtle feel-
ing," he said, "that if we want to
be Jews, then the mothers had
better be Jews."
Speaking in terms of the overall
impact of intermarriage on the
Jewish community, Mayer
declared himself "not as alarmed
by the numbers as others might
It's not that he applauds the
idea of intermarriage, tie said. It's
that, with the high conversion
rate, "it's very possible to see
large numbers of intermarried
families becoming part of the
Jewish community and reversing
the assimilation trend. It's a two-
way street."
Pointing out that many Jews
who marry out come from unaf-
filiated, non-observant
backgrounds, Mayer said inter-
marriage often forces those Jews
to become much more aware of
their own Judaism.
"There's a ripple effect on born
Jews," he said. "Many Jews don't
really bargain for the religious
transformation that intormar-
raige creates in their lives. The
Jewish spouses are very often go-
ing through the same transition as
the non-Jewish spouse who is go-
ing through conversion. We see it
time and again."
Mayer's conclusions about inter-
marriage, he said, are the product
of 10 years of research conducted
under the auspices of the
Amreican Jewish Committee.
In relation to the children of in-
termarriage, Mayer said, "The
greatest difficulty most intermar-
ried couples face is the extent to
which it is possible to expose the
children to any religious training.
"In conversionary marriages,
the problem is made much
simpler," he said. "They can raise
the children with one tradition."
Even so, Mayer said, "parents
have to make some very tough
decisions" especially in relation
to the non-Jewish grandparents.
"The problem of in-laws is a
very tricky one," he said. "My
main message is: Don't look to the
social sciences for a painless
answer. We don't have one.
"Some problems have only pain-
ful answers," he said.
"Sometimes you have to bite the,
bullet and say to your Christian in
laws, 'No, you can't take yo
grandchild to church.' "
It is very important for bothi
Jews and non-Jews to understand
that "it is a lot easier For non- Jewtw
to participate in Jewish ex*jg
periences than for Jews to parsT
ticipate in Christian experiences,'!
Mayer said.
"Most of what happens in
Jewish ceremony is not contradic-
tory to the Christian faith," he ex-
plained. "Jewish theology is not
so clearly written all over the
ceremonies of the synagogue, so
there is no explicit denial of a
Christian's beliefs. He may not
see his beliefs reflected, but he
won't see them denied."
On the other hand, Mayer said,
there's no way a Jew can par-
ticipate in a Christian service
"without it being a profound viola-
tion of our basic beliefs."
On the whole issue of the grow-
ing trend toward intermarriage
and the conversion of non-Jews to
Judaism, Mayer said, "The Chris-
tian world has been remarkably
