Concerned by Likud Government

(Continued from Page 1)
"It would be a sad day
for Israel and for world
Jewry were the Israel gov-
ernment, for whatever polit-
ical advantage, to permit
an Orthodox religious minor-
ity to suppress or to exer-
cise a veto over other
forms of religious expres-
sion. The new government
must recognize the value of
free competition in the cul-
ral arena no less than it
.oes in the commercial
arena.
"Both our Jewish heri-
tage and our American ex-
perience have taught us
that authentic Judaism
thrives best in an atmos-
phere of inquiry and expe-
rience," Dr. Cohen said.
A similar statement was
unanimously endorsed by
the constituent bodies of the
World Council of Syna-
gogues, the international or-
ganization of Conservative
Judaism, which includes
the United Synagogue of
America, the Rabbinical As-
sembly, the National Feder-

Meanwhile, concessions
by Likud to the ultra-Ortho-
dox Agudat Israel came un-
der fire from the Israel
Medical Association, which
wrote to Premier-designate
Menahem Begin urging no
change in the present laws
governing autopsies. •
The Social Workers Union
warned Likud that it would
fight any attempt to amend
the abortion law by remov-
ing the social condition of
the mother as one of the
grounds for approval of
abortion.
The Aguda, with four
Knesset seats, has agreed
to join a Likud-led coali-
tion. It made several de-
mands in the religious and
social areas including curbs
on abortion and barring au-
topsies without family con-
sent. Likud was acquiesced
to these demands.
In a letter to Begin, Dr.
Rami Yishai, chairman of
the Medical Association, del-
cared that any amendment
to the law on autopsies
would seriously affect the
quality of medical care in
Israel. He said that physi-
cians do their utmost now
to comply with the wishes
of the families but in cer-
tain cases autopsies must
be performed in the inter-
ests of national health and
family objections must not
be allowed to override medi-
cal considerations.
Dr. Yishai noted that the
National Religious Party
(NRP), for many years a
coalition partner, never
made such demands and
that whenever con-
troversies arose over au-
topsies they were generally
settled to the satisfaction of
the NRP and the medical
profession.
Itzhak Kadman, leader of
the Social Workers Union,
wrote to the Likud lead-
ership that the present abor-
tion law was adopted in re-

for

sponse to the needs of the
under-privileged sector of
society.
To eliminate social condi-
tions as a reason for abor-
tion would place a severe
burden on the poor, he said.
He cited unofficial statis-
tics that showed that about
80 percent of the abortion
requests brought before pro-
fessional screening com-
mittees for approval cited
social condition.

Tax Amnesty?

JUERSALEM
Reportedly, the Likud lead-
ership is seriously consid-
ering amnesty for Israelis
convicted of income - tax of-

fenses. The proposal is

based on the Likud belief
that the Labor government
created an economic situa-
tion which forced many
people to cheat.
