Into Conversion

NEW YORK (JTA)—A leading
Canadian Reform rabbi has re-
ported an ongoing cooperative ef-
fort in which he and the three
other Reform rabbis in the To-
ronto area seek to :apply con-
sistently the requirements of Jew-
ish religious law—including ritual
circumcision and immersion (te-
vila)—in -conversions of non-Jews
to Judaism.
Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut of the
Holy Blossom Temple described
the development in a report in
which he identified himself with
the "Halakha-oriented" Reform
rabbis in the Central Conference
of,American Rabbis.
Writing in the current issue of
the CCAR Journal, Rabbi Plaut
asserted that, on the main ques-
tions of Halakha and personal
status situations — marriage, di-
vorce and conversion--"we Re-
form rabbis have sinned with
abandon." He asserted that in
these areas, Reform rabbis could,
by applying halakhic norms. "con-

ly have jurisdiction over the 250-
house quarter which is inhabited
mostly by Orthodox Jews.
The latter are trying to gain
municipal control for themselves
in order to maintain the religious
character of the quarter and to
perpetuate religious control in the
area.
The housing ministry prefers
to appoint a nonpolitical group
of experts to administer the
area until its political future is
decided.
According to some reports, be-
hind-the-scenes bargaining between
the parties led to a compromise
that calls for a municipal council
to be appointed by the ministry
of interior, which is in the hands
of the Orthodox National Religious
Party.
Dr. Burg told the Knesset com-
mittee that until a solution is
found, Kiryat Arba should be run
jointly by an interministerial com-
mittee and representatives of the
settlers.
