TORONTO (JTA) — The
newly-elected president of
the Rabbinical Council of
America, Rabbi Bernard
Rosensweig of Kew Gar-
dens, N.Y., has sharply
critized yeshiva graduates
who have rabbinic ordina-
tion and Orthodox intellec-
tuals who isolate them-
selves from the mainstream
of the Orthodox Jewish
community.
Speaking to the delegates
attending the 42nd annual
national convention of the
Orthodox rabbinical associ-
ation, Rabbi Rosensweig
urged that "those who are
Jewishly knowledgeable
and religiously observant
should join existing Or-
thodox synagogues in their
respective communities and
thereby help to revitalize
them. There is a desperate
need for synagogue leaders
whose roots are nourished
by a yeshiva background
and a grounding in Torah
knowledge," he said.
He stressed that "nothing
can invigorate the Orthodox
synagogue more than the
influx of our more know-
ledgeable Jews into posi-
tions of leadership, giving a
more positive Torah direc-
tion to its varied programs
of activities."
Rosensweig also ex-
pressed concern "over
the failure of a substan-
tial body of graduates of
rabbinical seminaries to
enter the active rabbi-
nate and pursue their
careers as spiritual lead-
ers. The most competent

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The

Children of Moscow Jewish refuseniks pose with
homemade t-shirts openly expressing the belief in
their redemption to freedom, in a photo obtained by
the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry and Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews. The slogan on Efrom
Rosenstein's shirt, at lower right, reads: "I Will Not
Fear Because He Is With Me." Anna Yaffe, next to him,
displays an "Am Yisroel Chai — The Jewish People
Live." Above her, Maxim Lainer's shirt declares:
"God Guards the Remnants of His Nation."

United States Embassy an-
nounced that there has been
no change of policy with re-
spect to the issuance of visas
to tourists and other Israelis
planning to travel to the
U.S.
The statement was re-
leased in response to rumors
that the Consular Section
has taken a tougher line on
visas because of the pre-
sence in the U.S. of some
eight million improperly
documented foreigners.
The embassy announce-
ment said that it expects to
issue 45,000 visas to Israelis
this year, including 2,000
immigration visas com-
pared to just over 40,000
last year that included
1,774 immigrant visas.

Tribute to French
Resistance Hero

JERUSALEM—Bernard
(Avraham) Pons, the
French resistance hero who
was awarded one of France's
highest medals for his work
in the underground during
World War II, will be
memorialized by a forest on
Mount Gilboa to be planted
by his former comrades in
the Union of Jewish Vete-
rans of France — the or-
ganization Pons headed
during his resistance years.

A survey of the delegates
indicated that some 5,000

past 10 years had failed to
join major synagogues-
