JERUSALEM (JTA) —.Israel's
state budget for fiscal "1972-73.
which -begins April 1; will be
IL15,870,000,000 .($3.780,000.000),
compared with IL 14,835.000.000
($3.530.000,000), the current year.

ham Agmon and other senior of-
ficials said the gross national prod-
uct was expected to rise by 7 per
cent in the next fiscal year, the
same as 'this year. Full employ.
ment will continue, they said, as

Melchior Says
He Was Snubbed
by Unterman

COOPENHAGEN (JAI) — Chief
Rabbi Brent Melchior of Denmark
said that he was snu b b e d byi
Israel's Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi ,
Isser Yehuda Unterman during his
- visit to Israel last week.
Rabbi Melchior said he had
specifically requested a meeting
with th 86-year-old Unterman to
discuss recent allegations that con-
versions performed by him were
not strictly in accordance with re-
ligious law. -
Rabbi Melchior said he was
shunted from one subordinate to

another though Unterman knew
of his presence in Israel.
On the other hand. Rabbi Mel-
' chior said, he was received
cordially by the Sephardic chief
' rabbi, Itzhak Nissim, by Chief
' Rabbi Shlomo Goren of Tel Aviv,
and by Beersheba's chief rabbi,
. M. Kuzlowski. All three "showed
understanding" for his position,
Rabbi Melchior said.
(However, Rabbi Unterman, in a
letter written by his secretary to
Melchior, explained that he was at-
tending a rabbinical congress in

Milan.)
During his visit he was received
by President Zalman Shazar at his
Jerusalem home.
- Meanwhile, the JewiSh weekly
Judisk Orientirung sharply criti-
cized Israel's chief rabbinate for
questioning the validity of Rabbi
Melchior's conversions. The paper
said that the Israeli rabbis .never
even attempted to check the Danish
conversions to determine whether
or not they complied fully with
halakha.

Vocational Schools Grow
in Israel, Study .Shows
Some 15,500 persons attended
post-secondary' (non-academic), in-
stitutioni':iit::learning in Israel in
the I970-71C school year, accord-
ing tii;.iiTziitry0 brought out by the
IsraerteritiarOffice of Statistics.
The survey was commissioned by-
a committee appointed by: the min:,
ister of education , and culture to
examine the need 'and - posibilities
of expanding and -developing post-
secondary . school education in
Israel. Of these, 15,000 . attended
128 institutions in the Jewish edu-
cational sector, while the remain-
ing 500 were enrolled in three
schools in' the Arab educational
sector.

capita—is the highest in the world,
totaling IL 17.640,000,000 ($4,200,-
000,000). However, 90 per cent of
this consists of long-term loans,
repayable over the course of 10
years or more.- -
There will be no increase in the
absolute rate of taxation. But rises
in prices and salaries estimated
at a minimum of 4 per cent are ex:
pected to bring in 15 per cent more
revenue in both direct and indirect
taxes.
If prices and wages rise beyond
this level, it was indicated, taxes
also will be increased. In addition,
an added value tax, like that in
many European countries, is con-
templated and may be introduced
at any time after Oct. 1. Israelis
are already the most heavily taxed
population in the world.
A large part of the outlay for
immigrant absorption does not ap-
pear in the state. budget. The Jew-
ish agency has taken it upon. itself
to shoulder this burden. It will
provide 2(1.,000 immigrants "solu-
tions." while the government will
provide 18,500. "Solution" refers
to the purchase, long-term lease
or erection of dwelling units.
The income not derived from
taxation will be IL 6,000,000,000
($1.430,000,000). This includes
loans such as Israel Bonds, United
States government grants, a loan
from West Germany and internal

,

loans, as well as some repayment
to the government of debts owed

it. A sum of IL $2.600,000,000
($620,000,000) is expected to be
added to the nktion's deficit this
year.
