Progressive Judaism Union
Reaffirms Support for Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The World Union for
Progressive Judaism
reaffirmed its "uncondi-
tional" commitment to
Israel and Zionism here
and demanded full rights
and recognition for the
Reform rabbinate in this
country.
The
organization,
which serves as the um-
brella for 1.2 million
Progressive Reform and
Liberal Jews in 25 coun-
tries, held its 50th an-
niversary convention at
the Jerusalem Hilton
Hotel with some 800 dele-
gates attending.
Rabbi David H. Wice,
World Union president,
said at a press conference

that the organization's
dedication to Israel was
reflected not only in the
decision to hold its miles-
tone convention here but
by the transfers of the
World Union interna-
tional headquarters to
Jerusalem in 1973 and its
affiliation with the World
Zionist Organization,
finalized last year.
Rabbi Richard G.
Hirsch, executive director,
told the newsmen that the
Reform movement in Is-
rael has several demands
which should be fulfilled.
These were, he said, rec-
ognition of the movement
as an authentic Jewish
element by the Israeli au-
thorities; recognition of
conversions performed by
Reform rabbis abroad; au-
thorization of Reform rab-
bis to perform marriages
in Israel after thay have
registered with the Rab-
binical Council; authoriz-
ing Reform rabbis to serve
as chaplains and spiritual
guides in Israel's armed
forces; and granting the
Reform movement the
same governmental aid ex-
tended to other religious
branches.
There are presently 12
Reform congregations in
Israel. The government,
however, extends recog-
nition and aid only to the
Orthodox rabbinate
which has exclusive
jurisdiction in religious
matters affecting the
Jewish population.

thousands of refugees,
the aide replied "it is
pretty clear why he didn't
go to Israel."
The aide said Abourezk
visited government offi-
cials in Iraq but said he
did not know whether the
invitation to attend the
conference or meet the
officials came first. The
Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee officials were mys-
tified or lacked informa-
tion about the trip, in-
cluding its cost, when
questioned.
