Conservative Jews Gain in Israel

By DAVID ZUCKER

President,
World Council of
Synagogues

NEW YORK—Two days
after. the World Council of
Synagogues completed its
11th biennial convention in
Jerusalem last December,
the Israeli newspapers an-
nounced that the Rabin gov-
ernment had agreed to
grant to Conservative
rabbis the right to perform
marriages in Israel. Those
news reports have been ver-
ified, yet the decisions
which were taken by the
government have yet to be
fully carried out. Never-
.theless, they represent the
first official recognition
that the Conservative move-
ment in Israel has become

a - factor to be reckoned
with.
Twenty years ago, when
the World Council of Syna-
gogues was first organized
to represent world-wide Con-
servative Judaism, recogni-
tion in Israel, while dearly
desired, was believed to be
remote from reality. Then,
the Conservative move-
ment, though strong in the
United States, was hardly a
world-wide phenomenon
and was barely known in Is-
rael.
Today the World Council
embraces more than half of
organized Jewish religious
life in the world. With more
than 850 synagogues corn-
prising some 1,800,000
people in the United States
and Canada, and with anoth-
er 100 affiliated congrega-.
tions embracing some
200,000 Jews in Latin Amer-
ica, Europe, Israel and
India (25 countries in all),
the World Council is also
the largest Jewish religious
movement in the world
today.
By far the largest growth
of adherents to the Conserv-
ative movement in recent
years ' has been in Israel.
Until 1972, there were only
three Conservative congre-
gations in that country.
Today, there are 22 congre-
gations from Kibutz Neveh
Eitan in the north to Mick:-
ashat Sde Boker in the
south.
Its rapid growth in the
past four years coincides
with the establishment of
the Center for Conservative
Judaism in the heart of Je-
rusalem. The Center has be
come a focal point for
youth activities and study
groups, and its .synagogue
is • often host to visitors
from around the world.
Plans in Israel are well
under way for a Conserva-
tive-sponsored moshav
which will be developed in
the Negev. A kibutz with its
own Garin Nahal is also on
the drawing boards, as are
four urban cooperative
apartment projects. But per-
haps most significant in
terms of long-range growth
is the establishment of the

Monty Hall Aids

SAN DIEGO, Calif —

will serve on the executive

Tennis Center.
Hall will join the Israel

the dedication of the 5,000
seat Canada stadium at

"FIRST FOR
A REASON"

first public school to in-
clude the Conservative apa
proach to Judaism in its
curriculum. Begun in Je-
rusalem, the school's pro-
gram came about because
of the demands of the par-
ents whose children attend.
In September, 1976, the
World Council of Syna-
gogues and through it, its
constituent organizations,
the United Synagogue of
4merica, the Rabbinical As-
s e m bl y, the Women's
League for Conservative
Judaism, the National Fed-
eration of Jewish Men's
Clubs and the United Syna-
gogue of Israel, in an histor-
ic act, joined the World Zi-
onist Organization.
