`Jewish Unity Threatened by Too-Strict Halakha Interpretation'

LONDON (JTA)—A Phila-
delphia Reform rabbi de-
clared here that "to require
all Jews to conform to a
strict and unbending inter-
pretation of Halakha would
threaten the unit of our
people."
Rabbi David H. Wice, act-
ing president of the World
Union for Progressive Juda-
ism, issued the warning at
the 18th international con-
ference of the World Union.
Leon Dulzin, treasurer of
the Jewish Agency, said one
of the basic weakness of Zi-
onism and of Israel is that

there is no religious "plural-
ism" in Israel.
He said while religion has
been a creative factor in
Zion ism , institutionalized
Orthodoxy in Israel has be-
come an instrument of polit-
ical parties resulting in the
abuses of the very ideals
they were seeking to main-
tain.
Dulzin said the Who Is a
Jew controversy is really a
question of "who is a con-
vert," and is a matter for
the entire Jewish people to
decide and not for political
parties or even a Jewish
state.
The conference passed a
resolution affirming its de-
mand "that the State of Is-
rael recognize the right of
all affirmative expressions
of Judaism to equal treat-
ment under the law."
Surveying the problems of
Progressive Judaism in Latin
America, Rabbi Roberto D.
Graetz of Buenos Aires said
the Latin American coun-
tries were either stable but
under an oppressive dictator-
ship, or fluid in an ever-
changing political scene, and

that local Jewish communi-
ties reflected the situation.
He said Chile, for example,
had suffered losses of its
spiritual and communal Jew-
ish leadership during the re-
gime of President Allende
because many influential
Jews and all but one of its
rabbis, a progressive rabbi
who tried to provide some
kind of leadership, had left
Chile. He said the rabbis had
subsequently returned and'
were now supporting the new
regime.
Rabbi Graetz stressed that
the situation in Argentina
was unclear after the death

of President Peron and be-
cause of the lack of a reli-
gious tradition in Argentina.
He said there were more
than 400,000 Jews in Buenos
Aires but that fewer than 20
per cent belonged to any
kind of Jewish institution.
Rabbi Henry Sobel of Sao
Paulo said he felt the Jewish
communities in Latin Amer-
ica, and especially in Brazil,
were in more danger than
Jews in any other part of the
world, because Latin Amer-
ica Jews were "afraid to
make up their minds as to
their place and role in their
societies."

LONDON (JTA) — The
House of Lords has ruled
that no insurance money is
payable for the destruction
of three planes at Beirut
Airport by Israeli com-
mandos in December, 1968.
The raid by helicopter-
borne Israelis blew up two
Coronados and a DC7, three-
quarters of the fleet • of
Lebanese International Air-
ways, in reprisal for an at-
tack by Arab terrorists two
days earlier on an El Al
airliner in Athens.
The Lords unanimously
dismissed an appeal by
American Airlines Inc. of
New York and Banque Sab-
bag, SAL, of Beirut, against
an Appeals Court decision in
February, 1973 that they were
not entitled to insurance
money from Ralph James
D'Olier Hope and other un-
derwriters.
The insurance expressly
excluded war risks for the
planes chartered to Leb-
anese Airlines.

TEL AVIV (JTA)—What
Israel needs least these days
is a third "Panther" group.
But police disclosed the ex-
istence of a group calling
itself the . "Religious Pan-
thers," patterned after the
"Black Panthers" and their
offshoot, the "Blue and
White Panthers."
Their existence was dis-
covered when a suspected
letter bomb addressed to Na-
tional Religious Party Secre-
tary General Zvi Bernstein
was turned over to police.
The envelope contained a
harmless piece of metal. A
note heaping insults on Bern-
stein was signed "Religious
Panthers."
Police believed it may
have been sent by a dis-
sident group or individual
within the NRP opposed to
the party's joining Premier
Yitzhak Rabin's government.
