Female Rabbi
Shuns Pulpit

BUFFALO, N.Y. (JTA)—
One of the two American
women who are rabbis mar-
ried to male rabbis—Rabbi
Rebecca Alpert—has report-
ed she has not sought a pul-
pit post because that is not
her major interest. But, she
told the Buffalo Jewish Re-
view, she has been under
pressure from colleagues to
seek a pulpit. "For a man,
it is considered more impor-
tant to become a scholar,"
she remarked. "But for a
woman, being a scholar is
often considered copping-
out." She and her husband,.
Joel, are 1976 graduates of
Philadelphia's Reconstruc-
tionist College.

Rockaway Assesses U.S. Jewry

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—His-
torian Robert Rockaway,
professor of American Jew-
ish history at Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, has spent a Sabba-
tical year in : the United
States in order to study the
current Jewish scene. In an
article for Haaretz he came
to the following con-
clusions:
-The situation within the
Jewish communities is
quite sad. The Jewish popu-
lation is not increasing.
Less than 50 per cent are af-
filiated with synagogues or
organizations. The percent-
age of mixed marriages is
nearing 40 per cent.
Despite the positive feel-
ings toward Zionism, the
ties with Israel and Zionism
on the part of non-Zionist or-
ganizations tend to be super-
ficial and misguided. The
concept of "Zionism"

ROBERT ROCKAWAY

ation. Concentrating on

'of full identification and
shared responsibility with

The result is that Ameri-

Day Way or - the Entebbe
Raid and not in their every-
day lives. -

funds for their philanthrop-

Peres: Israel Goal
to Have 6M Jews

JERUSALEM (JTA)—
"We shall march forward
together with you so as to
attain, in the year 2000, a
country of six million Jews,
with a firm and sound eco-
nomic infrastructure and
with a political and social
future guaranteed for our
coming generations."
This was the message
that Shimon Peres deliv-
ered last week to a delega-
tion of visiting representa-
tives of local organizations
of the United' „Jewish Ap-
peal.
In a remark plainly in-
tended for Washington ears,
Peres said Israel would do
all it could to prevent the
upcoming negotiations from
failing. He hoped that if the
talks were carefully pre-
pared beforehand they
would meet with success.

Advises Israel

The committee formed
with the cooperation of the
Government of Israel Trade
Center and ,the Ministry of
Commerce and Industry in
Israel. The committee's ob-
jective was to review the Is-
raeli furniture industry and
advise the manufacturers
how best to attract Ameri-
tan and Canadian business
during the Israel Furniture
Week- event.
