Israel 'Jewish Identity' Law Called 'Danger'
to Unity in Local Rabbis' Plea for Changes

Detroit's Vaad Harabonim—the
Council of Orthodox Rabbis—at a
special meeting held last Friday,
unanimously adopted a resolution
declaring that "the acceptance by
the Israel government of non-Jews
who were not properly converted
is a- potential threat to our sur-
vival as a people."
The declaration is based on the
rabbis' contention, expressed in one
of the whereases in the resolu-
tion that "recent Israeli legisla-
tion identifies (as)- a Jew 'one
born of a Jewish mother or one
who has converted' omitting the
basic principle that conversion
must be in accordance with ha-

rabbis, in their appeal to the
Israel government, to the Knesset
and to the rosh hamemshala (the
Israeli prime minister,) voiced
"the alarming concern (of the
Vaad Harabonim) of the great
danger and threat to Jewish unity
and identity in this law."
The appeal to the government,

expressed in this resolution is to
