cation forms for Bendix-
Siyanco projects in Saudi
Arabia required. "proof of
religion" in the form of a
baptismal certificate "or
a properly executed letter
of faith by chaplain of
your choice."
At a House hearing in
1975, Rep. Benjamin Ro-
senthal (D-NY) noted
that this was in violation
of federal law, regu-
lations and government
policy.
In June, 1975, two
Jewish applicants filed
complaints with the Equal
Employment- Opportunity
Commission charging that
they were barred from
employment by Bendix-
Siyanco because they were
Jews. The complaint was
filed on their behalf by
the Bnai Brith Anti-
Defamation League.
Justin Finger, assis-
tant director of the ADL's
civil rights division, was
quoted by the Post as say-
ing that while Bendix
does not control the Saudi

.

government, it was_not a
Bendix function "to
handle discriminatory
activity for the Saudi
Arabians."
Finger added that the
case in question was
likely to be settled and
that Bendix had since
removed the religious
question from its applica-
tion forms and adopted an
affirmative action pro-
gram policy for the Sau-
dian project.
The Post also quoted a
Bendix spokesman as
saying that Bendix had
merely transmitted in-
structions from the Sau-
dian government and
withdrew the religious
question before the ADL
complaint. According to
the Post, the spokesman
described Blumenthal as
"entirely opposed to dis-
crimination.
The PoSt said Bendix
has been "studiously
neutral" in the Middle

AJCommittee to Study Issues
Affecting Jewish Families

BY BEN GALLOB

(Copyright 1977, JTA, Inc.)

A three-year study on
Jewish concerns about
family life will be made by
the American Jewish
Committee, one of its offi-
cials told the annual
meeting in Dallas of the
AJCommittee's executive
council.
In announcing plans
for the study, Marvin
Riseman, chairman of the
agency's Jewish com-
munal affairs commis-
sion, said that 10 prob-
lems which could lead to
"the attrition of the
Jewish community," were
currently affliciting the
Jewish family in America.
The study will examine
the ways in which_chang-
ing family patterns in so-
ciety at large are affect-
ing Jewish families, and
their effects on the
transmission of Jewish
values and identity to
children.
Riseman asserted that
"the close-knit, extended
family gi-oup that has
characterized Jewish life,
and that was responsible
in large part for the sense
of Jewish identity being
passed along to each suc-
ceeding generation of
children, is disintegrat-
ing."
He asked whether the
Jewish family could be
bolstered or whether "we
must look for new .chan-
nels to ensure—Jewish
continuity."
He listed the problems
as that "more Jews marry
later than_-members of
other groups; most
Jewish singles groups no
longer operate solely for
the purpose of 'matching,'
and 'Mese groups now are
supportive of singles and
the single way - of life.' "
Declaring also that the
divorce rate is rising
among Jews, Riseman
said "there appears to be
no stigma for the failure
of marriage, and there is
no presumption of per-
manence."
He also declared that the

Jewish birth rate is falling
and that childlessness
"has become socially ac-
ceptable." Financial suc-
cess, "rather than the
rearing of children, has
become, for many, the
major goal of the family"
among American Jews, he
said.
He said also that "the
degree and intensity" of
Jewish family interaction
has decreased, though it
continues to be higher
than that of other reli-
gious and social groups,
and that there is less
socializing across_Jewish
generational lines,
"partly as a result of geo-
graphical mobility."
He said the agency's
study will examine the
impact of the rising di-
vorce rate, single-parent
homes, working mothers,
the women's liberation
movement, family mobil-
ity and the impact of tele-
vision. The study also will
consider federal and state
laws, public policies and
Jewish communal serv-
ices in terms of their im-
pact on the Jewish family,
he said.

missiles which the U.S.
sells to Israel, Saudi
Arabia and Jordan.
Blumenthal, whose
parents were Jewish, is a
Presbyterian. He has
been quoted as urging the
U.S. to halt arms ship-
ments to the Middle East
because "arming these
nations is a foolish policy
for which we and they will
ultimately pay a price
measured in blood."

REHOVOT, Israel
The National Multiple
Sclerosis Society of the
U.S. has awarded a six-
month research grant of
$25,000 to Prof. Ruth
Arnon, head of the Weiz-

basic copolymer (Cop 1), a
substance made up of a
chain of identical, re-

The current project in-
volves investigation of
