Romanian Chief Rabbi Would Halt 'Dropout' Aid

MADRID (JTA) —
Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen
of Romania has urged
world Jewry to stop ex-
tending financial help to
Jews who leave the Soviet
Union with Israeli visas
but go to countries other
than Israel.

Rosen stated his posi-

He also appealed to the
WJC to implement the re-

erning board in Geneva to
authorize "exploratory

Jewish community in
Moscow.
Rosen decried the drop-
outs who, he claimed, were
endangering the future of
Jewish emigration from
the USSR. He said it has

'Jewish Socio-Economic Status
to Be Stable to Century's End'

DALLAS (JTA) -- A
leading manpower expert
predicted that American
Jews should be able to
maintain their above av-
erage position on the
social-economic scale dur-
ing the final quarter of
the 20th Century.
The forecast was made
by Dr. Eli Ginzberg, Bar-
ton Hepburn Professor of
Economics at Columbia
University's Graduate
School of Business, at the
closing luncheon session
of the A-merican Jewish
Committee's National
Executive Council meet-
ing. The NEC is the
' AJCommittee's top
policy-making body.
Ginzberg, who is
chairman of the National
Commission for Man-
power Policy, said that
the prospects for a stable
economy were good and
that Jews would benefit
from the continuing de-
cline of religious dis-
crimination.

psychological factors that
might have negative ef-
fects on the prosperity of
American Jews. Among
these, he said, was the
"current and prospective
oversupply of college-
trained persons" which
would "slow the progress
of many young Jews now
entering the labor force;"
and the "rapid growth of
the South and Southwest
with their relatively
sparse Jewish populations
and the retardation of the
rate of growth in the North
where most Jews are con-
centrated."
Ginzberg specifically
mentioned the Orthodox
Jewish community as one
"whose practices inhibit
their occupational ad-
vance because many
shun secular colleges and
are disinclined to have
their women work."
At an earlier session,
Yehuda Rosenman, di-
rector of the AJCommit-
tee's Communal Affairs
Department, presented a
report containing the
findings and recommen-
dations of a three-year
study by the AJCommit-
tee's Colloquium on
Jewish Education and
Jewish Identity.
It called for a major
overhauling of the sys-
tem of Jewish education
in the U.S. aimed at instil-
ling a greater sense of
Jewish identity among
Jewish youth. Rosenman
stressed the importance
of continuing Jewish edu-
cation at the junior and
senior high school levels
because the teen years
were a crucial period in
the development of iden-
tity patterns.
