JERUSALEM —For the
first time in two years of si-
lence and feuding, • Israel's
chief rabbis, Ashkenzai
Shlomo Goren and Sephardi
Ovadia Yosef, met for 7 5 min-
utes recently at the invitation
of Religious Affairs Minister
Hayim Zadok. They dis-
cussed problems affecting Is-
rael's rabbinical courts, re-
ported Judy Siegel of the Je-
rusalem Post.
The rabbis met in the
Chief Rabbinate Council
chamber in Hekhal
Sholomo, where they had
not sat together since
1974. Rabbi Yosef had
boycotted most of the
council sessions through-
out most of his term
charging that Goren
forced through measures
with the automatic sup-
port of the members.
The meeting included
only the minister and the
abbis. "It was not meant
S be a reconciliation,"
Zadok maintained, "lwt
an attempt to bring order
to the courts."
The meeting was held
in a "good spirit" said a
Zadok aide. More meet-
ings are expected to fol-
low.

The laws of Passover in
the Talmud occur in the
tractate Pesahim.
