Committee Chairman Frank J.

Washington. Before some 350 guests at a
meeting of the Committee, Rosenne praised
the U.S. invasion of Grenada.
Eliahu Ben-Elissar,
chairman of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Secur-
ity Committee, contended
this week that the partition
of Lebanon was both una-
voidable and necessary.

The army Chief of Staff, Gen.
Rene Imbot, in an order of the
day, said the army's "will to
complete its mission is, if
anything, harder and more
resolute than before."
Mitterrand's trip to Beirut,
during which he paid homage to
the French and American soldiers
killed or wounded in the line of
duty, is seen here as a symbolic
gesture of hie determination to
keep his men in Beirut as part of
the multinational force.

Ship Ends
Maiden Voyage
rael's newest and largest dry bulk
carrier, the 166,000 deadweight
ton motorship Hadera, has
completed her first voyage for the
Zim Lines, Israel's national
shipping company. The 900-foot
collier discharged her first cargo
of coal from South Africa at the
fully automated coal pier of the
Hadera power station.
U.S. plan to arm a Jordanian
task force which would be part of
the American rapid deployment
force poised to protect the Per-
sian Gulf.
SHAMIR, stressing that Is-
rael's opposition to the American
plan was in accordance with its
longstanding policy against
arming any Arab state that
maintains a status of belligerency
with Israel, denied reports that
Israel had negotiated with the
U.S. for possible compensation if
it withdrew its objections.
Shamir also denied reports
that he had threatened Lebanon
with indefinite Israeli occupation
if it abrogated the withdrawal
and security agreement the two
countries signed last May 17.
Ben-Elissar said that both Sy-
ria and Israel have interests in
Lebanon, sad therefore that
country should be divided, cruet
as it would be. He maintained
that any other solution would be
detrimental to Israel. Ben-
Elissar, who was Israel's first
Ambassador to Egypt and a
protege of former Premier Men-
achem Begin, is one of the most
influential of the younger mem-
bers of Herat.
HE EXPRESSED his views
on Lebanon as that country's
warring factions were about to
open a meeting in Geneva aimed
at national reconciliation.
Geula Cohen, of the Tehiya
Party, claimed the U.S. arming of
Jordan would lead to war against
Israel. "If such a war breaks out,
we shall fight back the Jordanian
army in a war of defense to the
Gilead mountains and Amman,"
she said. Yossi Sarid, a Labor
Alignment dove, promptly ac-
cused Cohen of calling for Israel's
z occupation of Jordan.

Affront to America
The Reagan Administrations decision to
spurn the medical assistance instantly
offered by Israel to victims of the terrorist
bombing in Lebanon on Oct. 23 is more
than an affront to Israel. It is an affront to
every American.
As a consequence of this shabby
decision, lives of Marines were snuffed out
who might otherwise have survived their
long and senseless trip to hospitals in
Europe, where they arrived too late for
State Department and other high
government officials unwilling to be quoted
have since frankly admitted that the
government spurned Israel's offer because
it was afraid of the Arab reaction. The Arab
reaction to what? Who was it in the first
place who killed 230 Marines in Lebanon?
Once again. President Reagan
demonstrates that neither he nor those
advising him understands Lebanon, or the
Middle East either, for that matter.
Northing he can say about the purpose of
our presence in Beirut therefore makes a
scintilla of sense.
In separating himself from Israel at the
actual cost of American lives, the President
has absolutely no right to make statements
that link the United States and Israel in the
cause of freedom. That is pure political
mumbo-jumbo. His Administration's
irresponsible policies speak more loudly
than his hypocritical, saccharin words.
Mr. Reagan is willing to spend American
lives for his penny-ante political un-
derstanding of the stakes in Lebanon.
Syria Demands Agreement
With Israel Be 'Null and Void'
(JTA) Syria demanded
here the unconditional
withdrawal of Israel from
Lebanon and declared that
the American sponsored
agreement Israel and
Lebanon signed last May
17 was "null and void."
Addressing the 38th General
Kammkfy, the Syrian Foreign
Minister. Abdul Halim Khad-
dam. said the U.S. and Israel had

security in the region.
that "direct intervention of the
U S Marines in the civil war in
support of one side represented a
danger to the situation in the
region." He called for a halt to
US. aid to Israel, declaring that
a Middle East peace required Is-
rael's total withdrawal from the
territories it has occupied since
High Court to Hear Challenge
Of British Oil Ban Against Israel
LONDON (JTA) The British government's ban
on North Sea oil supplies to Israel is to be challenged in
the High Court on the grounds that it infringes the law of
the European Economic Community (EEC). The case is
also likely to involve the European Court of Justice.
The oil had been sold in April. 1961 by Sun Inter-
national and Sun Oil Trading Company to a company
called Bulk Oil registered at Zug. Switzerland. The sale
contract contained the words, "destination free but

Women Okay for Conservative Smicha
The faculty of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America has approved, by a
large majority, the admis-
sion of women to the JTS
rabbinical school for or-
dination as Conservative
rabbis and one Conser-
vative rabbinical leader
said he was skeptical about
reports that the decision
would cause a major split in
American Conservative Ju-
The vote of 34-8, at a special
meeting called by JTS chancellor
Gerson Cohen, ended a long-
running controversy in the move-
ment, in which a steadily growing
number of Conservative rabbis
endorsed admission of women by
the JTS for ordination, while a
substantial number of JTS
faculty members remained in
adamant opposition.
THERE ARE 55 faculty
members at the JTS. Three from
the Talmudic program boycotted
the meeting. The 42 present at
the meeting represented nearly
75 percent of the total Faculty
Senate and the affirmative vote
for admission of women was by a
similar majority
Cohen, who headed the com-
mission he named in 1977 to
study the controversial issue, and
who was chairman of the
meeting, said after the vote that
he regarded it as "evidence that
the Seminary and the Conserva-
tive movement in American
Judaism are able to respond to
the challenges of modernity in
traditional terms."
After the J4-S vote, a second
motion was pa-sed which called
on Cohen to name a committee,
with Dr. Joel Roth, associate
professor of Talmud and Rabbi-
nic s and Rabbinical School Dean,
as its chairman to review and
recommend criteria for admission
of all candidates to the Rabbi-
nical School, subject to approval
by the JTS chancellor. Roth had
proposed the motion for ad-
mission of women.

expressed by Rabbi Wolfe
Kelman. executive vice president
of the Rabbinical Assembly, the
association of Conservative
rabbis He told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that it was
IfMtllMj that the first women
would be admitted to the or-
dination program at the JTS in
Sept ember. 1984
The Conservative movement
thus joins Reform and Recon-
vtructionism in ordaining women
as rabbis. There are now some 60
women rabbis, most of them
holding positions as assistant
rabbis, others in administrative
and leaching posts. The iReform)
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion, began the
process more than 10 years ago
by ordaining Sally Preisand as
the first woman rabbi in
American history.
Kelman offered a guess that
25 to 30 women will be admitted
as the first women members of
the JTS Rabbinical School. He
stud he agreed with Cohen that
the vote would not cause any
schism in the Conservative
HE SAID the essence of the
movement is "reverence for
pluralism" and for "unbaked
freedom of expression and
academic freedom, with the only
limit being the rulings of the RA
Committee on Jewish Law and
nan also told the JTA that
in the past 40 years, more than
500 rabbis trained in Orthodox
and Reform seminaries
applied for admission to the
and that more than 400 had been
accepted while, in that same
period, fewer than five rabbis
have resigned from the RA on
ideological grounds.
Kelman. who attended the
meeting, confirmed Cohen's des-
cription of the debate as "full of
debate" but not rancorous.
Kelman commented that a lot of
anger had been expressed prior to
the debate by Conservative foes
of ordination of women. He also
said he doubted that the vote
would affect Conservative
relatkinships with the Orthodox
movement, which has never
accepted either Conservative or
Reform Judaism as valid.
A GROUP of Conservative
.lews opposed to ordination of
women, called the Union for
Traditional Conservative

Novak of Bayswater. Long

prudence. Kelman said the

they care and recognize the need
to build Menorah Manor 'Our
Home for Jewish Living' The
need to complete a Jewish life
cycle of family care and service
for our elderly has long been
known and, today, we have
reached a milestone and the com-
munities of Florida's West Coast
can mark this as the beginning of
truly fulfilling this desire."
Chairman Wittner "... As
we get ready to break ground, we
need to pause a few seconds just
to thank those who gave us this
opportunity our peers, our
parents, our grandparents and
the previous generations. Were it
not for these people, our
predecessors, none of us would be
here today to take advantage of
this opportunity You might
be surprised to know th-t
hundreds of people have taktn
part in Menorah Manor so far
and there will be many more to
Chairman Wittner paid special
tribute to the late Rabbi Morris
B. Chapman "one particular
director who has given a number
of us special inspiration and
certainly was one of the inspiring
forces of Menorah Manor. He
served Jewish causes for almost
70 years throughout the world.
Although he is not with us today,
I know his spirit is watching us."
Now, as Menorah Manor
enters the next exciting phase of
its fruition, President Miller was
quick to note: "We have made
tremendous progress in the past
several months but it is even
more imperative now that we
broaden the base of Menorah
Manor benefactors in the months

Statistics show that each year,
129,000 new cases of colo-rectal
cancer are diagnosed in America.
Of those diagnosed, approx-
imately 57,000 people die yearly,
but many of these deaths are
unnecessary. If detected early, an
individual's chances for survival
increase from 30 per cent to 90
