Israel Court Rules on "Who?"
U.S. Jews Split On Decision
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
"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
See Related Story Page 2
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."
Sholom Comay, president of
the American Jewish Commit-
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,

America Applauds Cabinet Vote
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 lui eiecUoua
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.

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 FLO
member.
In Israel, aides to Shamir
described the allegations as
"nonsense" and "lies."
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.
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
tk'.iils nhttut the meeting.

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

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.
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.

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
omitted information about my
job. Along with the address, I
f>ut the number one on the
etter to let the omnipresent
KBG know that someone
would be counting. I remem-
bered the old ioke about the
S Soviet refusenik who is awak-
?ened by a knock on the door at
j3 a.m. Responding to his,
_"Who is it?", the reply is,
f'postmen." Really KBG
agents, they then begin pep-
-jpering this man with questions
s about why he wants to leave
| the Soviet Union.
j They ask about the long
_ meat lines. Could it be the lack
| of stock in the stores? Might it
S be the worthless currency? and
jso on. He demurs at every
William A. Gralnick
turn. None of these are the
reasons. Finally, exasperated,
the agents shout, "Well then
comrade, why is it that 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.
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, Glasnost.
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.
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

Most Important Fast Day Aug. 10
By RABBI MARC H. TANENBAUM
(Copyright 1989,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of
the Jewish month of Av which
will be observed this year Aug.
10, is the most important of
that four historical fast days
that commemorate the events
connected with the destruction
of the First and Second Tem-
ples and of Jerusalem, first by
the Babylonians and then by
the Roman legions.
Among pious, traditional
Jews, the fast of Av is
observed with all the solemnity
of the Day of Atonement. In
addition to avoiding all cele-
brations and sensual pleas-
ures, observant Jews pray like
mourners, sitting on boxes in
the synagogue, reciting dirges
over the passing of the Temple
and the religious and national
life which it symbolized.
With the rebirth of the State
of Israel and the reunification
of Jerusalem after two millen-
nia, many Jews now ask
whether Tisha B'Av should not
be abandoned, or at least
updated.
One Orthodox Jew in Lon-
don proposed this reformula-
tion of reasons for observing
Tisha B'Av in the 20th cen-
tury:
- What do I mourn over? I
mourn over the reasons for the
ancient destruction, many of
which regrettably exist today.
- I mourn over the causeless
hatred which finds people who
eat and drink together and
then thrust each other through
with the daggers of their ton-
gue.
- I mourn over the lack of
social justice, business and
professional integrity, and
unethical behavior among
those in high places.
- I mourn over the serious
moral evils that could do more
to undermine human existence
than any sword raised against
us from outside.

sultant for the American Jew-
ish Committee and immediate

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.
Conservative, Reform
Jews Asked To Withhold
Funds From Chabad
LettBrS ... from our readers:
By BEN GALLUB
(Copyright 1989.
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
A new dispute that pits Con-
servative and Reform Jews
against the Lubavitch Hasidic
movement threatens to upset
an uneasy peace in the Ameri-
can Jewish religious commun-
ity.
At issue is the recurring
debate touched off by efforts
of Orthodox and Hasidic move-
ments, both within and outside
of Israel, to amend the Law of
Return to effectively exclude
Reform and Conservative con^
verts from automatic Israeli
citizenship.
Such Orthodox challenges to
the religious legitimacy of
Conservative and Reform
Jews, who contribute millions
of dollars annually to the Cha-
bad Lubavitch movement,
finally brought specific
requests from leaders of Con-
servative and Reform Jews
that such gifts be stopped.
Last November, Chancellor
Ismar Schorech of the Jewish
Theological Seminary, the
principal Conservative aca-
demic institution and home of
the movement's rabbinical
school, issued a formal state-
ment urging Conservative
Jews to stop making contribu-
tions to Chabad.
The Reform movement was
less blunt. A statement with
the headline, "Before You
Give to Chabad" appeared in
the summer 1989 issue of
Reform Judaism, the official
voice of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations, the
North American association of
Reform synagogues.
The statement was unusual
in that it was unsigned and
was not presented as an edito-
rial or as a message specifi-
cally from UAHC leaders.
Rabbi Daniel Syme, UAHC
vice president, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
UAHC board of directors had
determined that Reform Jews
should be informed about the
positions of Chabad relative to
Reform Judaism so that their
contributions to Chabad
"should be based on informed
decisions."
Syme said the unsigned
statement in Reform Judaism
was meant to provide such

Editor:
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.
If Mr. Waksman and the
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
artir*l bv 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
them to be seen as unanimous
in the Jewish community.
While I have found a general
aversion to firearms among
most of the Jews I have spoken
with, I have also found that
many of my Jewish friends
own firearms and agree with
me that a disarmed Jewish
community may, in some
uncertain future time, face
great peril.

WE ISM ANN "COLUMNISTS" Examination of scrapings as
small as 1/20 of an ounce has enabled researchers from the
Weizmann Institute of Science to pinpoint the origin of marble
columns used by Roman builders in Israel almost 2,000 years ago.
Application of the latest mass spectrometer techniques by Weiz-
mann Isotope Research Prof. Mordeckai Magaritz, left, and
graduate student Ze'ev Pearl shows that the marble in the famous
Caesaria amphitheatre came from many different quarries
outside Israel. Tel Aviv archaeologist Moshe Fischer is at right.

information.
The statement said that for
many years, Reform Jews
have been numbered "among
the largest contributors to
Chabad. Millions of dollars
have helped to swell the annual
budget of Chabad to an esti-
mated $60 million."
The statement went on to
describe "recent events in
Israel" that every Reform Jew
should know about.
It said that since 1971, the
Lubavitcher rebbe, Menachem
Schneerson, had "spearheaded
the campaign" to amend the
Law of Return, and that Cha-
bad "has maintained full-time
paid lobbyists" in Israel "to
attain this goal."
The statement also cited a
commentary, written more
than 30 years ago, which set
forth the rebbe's opinion, reit-
erated "on several occasions
privately and publicly, (which)
is based on the indisputable
halachic decision, formulated
by Rambam, according to
which the doctrines and ideol-
ogy of the Conservative and
Reform movements can only
be classed in the category of
heretical movements which
have plagued our people, at
one time or another, only to
disappear again."
The statement also noted
that "the Ministries of the
Interior, Absorption and Reli-
gion are now controlled by the
ultra-Orthodox parties. Their
bureaucrats have administra-
tively denied citizenship to
new immigrants converted by
Reform and Conservative rab-
bis, in direct violation of Israeli
law."
The statement concluded
that "if our conversions are
not conversions, our rabbis are
not rabbis and our Judaism is
not Judaism, this is no time for
complacency. The battle for
our rights must continue."

deprive the sustenance of the
tens of thousands of materially
and spiritually needy benefici-
aries of the Lubavitch move-
ment, extended to all Jews,
regardless of affiliation,
because of a difference of opin-
ion on a totally unrelated issue
is morally repugnant, uncon-
scionable and simply inhu-
mane."
He added that "the massive
worldwide educational and
social service work of Lubav-
itch which without discrim-
ination maintains open doors
and an outreach program for
all Jews, regardless of affilia-
tion will unquestionably con-
tinue to receive the universal
administration and support it
ue&eives.
Asked why Reform Jews
have contributed so heavily to
a movement which rejects
Reform, Syme replied that
Reform Jews have contributed
to Chabad because they have
felt that Chabad "does many
good things."
But, Syme added, Chabad's
"total support" for changes in
the Law of Return and in the
related "Who Is a Jew" con-
troversy "has led many Con-
servative and Reform Jews to
reconsider whether they
should contribute to a move-
ment which works to disen-
franchise them as Jews."

Moscow Activists Will Emigrate
NEW YORK (JTA) Lea-
ding Moscow Jewish activists
Inna and Igor Uspensky and
their son, Slava, who were
refused exit visas for eight
years, have received permis-
sion to emigrate.
But Igor's 77-year-old
mother, Irin'a Voronkevitch, a
retired biologist, has not yet
won permission to leave the
Soviet Union, .the National
Conference on. Soviet Jewry
reported.
Slava, whose full name is
Viacheslav, will leave soon for
Israel to join his wife and
infant daughter, whom he has
never seen.
Kholmiansky said that Slava
might leave within the month
to join his wife, Alia, who has
lived with Kholmiansky since
her arrival in Israel last
March.
The couple were married in a
secret religious ceremony last
year. They wanted their child
born in Israel.
Voronkevitch has been told
by the OVIR emigration
bureau in Moscow that she
must now obtain documents
from her former work place in
order to receive security clear-
ance.
The Uspenskys were origin-
ally refused permission to emi-
grate in March 1981, because
Inna's brother, Professor
Alexander Ioffe, allegedly had
access to state secrets.
Ioffe, a mathematician, was
permitted to emigrate in Jan-
uary 1988. Following this,
Slava applied to emigrate inde-
pendent of his parents.
His application was refused
last August, this time because
of his grandmother's alleged
exposure to state secrets.

ilteut. t.S).
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
speech Moses summarizes the Torah as a whole. Me 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' (Deuteronomy 1.12-17).
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
Reuben, Gad, and half of the tribe of Manasseh.

Argentine Aliyah Lessens _
By CATHRINE GERSON
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
expected mass aliyah of Jews
from Argentina this year will
not materialize, according to
Knesset Speaker Dov Shi-
lansky, who returned from a
visit to that country.
Shilansky, a Likud leader,
admitted that Argentine Jews
did not respond to the words of
his mentor, the late Ze'ev
Jabotinsky, who exhorted
Jews to liquidate the Diaspora
before it liquidates them.
Concern over the recent
change of political leadership
in Argentina, complicated by
severe economic hardships
created by four-digit inflation,
raised hopes among Israeli
officials that the largely mid-
dle-class Argentine Jews
would pour into Israel.
Shilansky, who represented
Israel at the inauguration of
Argentina's new president,
Carlos Menem, told reporters
that fear ran high among
Argentine Jews when Menem
defeated incumbent President
Raoul Alfonsin in the elec-
tions.
Alfonsin was friendly to the
Jewish community, the largest
in Latin America, whereas
Jews were suspicious of
Menem, who is of Syrian
descent and a member of the
populist Peronist party.
However, Argentine Jews
have become complacent since
the election, Shilansky said.
"They think that it won't be as
terrible as they thought."
He said he had "nothing to
say about the new president. It
may be that he will be very
good for the Jewish people."
But, the Knesset speaker
added, "we have to make
aliyah, to come to Israel even
when it's good. That is the
right time to come to Israel."
He predicted that 3,500
Argentine Jews will come to
Israel this year, compared to
1,500 last year. But far
greater numbers had been
anticipated.
