Orthodox Rabbi Hits Reform
Leader on Who Is a Jew'

Rabbi Moshe Sherer, execu-
tive president of Agudath
Israel of America, took issue
with Rabbi Alexander
Schindler, president of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, for his at-
tack on the Law of Return
amendment which passed
its first reading in the
Knesset last week.
Sherer was particularly
angered by the segment in
Schindler's statement
which noted that new politi-
cal efforts are under way "to
disqualify two-`thirds of
world Jewry from member-
ship in the Jewish people."
Schindler said: "At this
critical time when the need
-for Jewish unity is
paramount, we are appalled
by the new political efforts
to amend Israel's Law of
Return so as to disqualify
two-thirds of world Jewry
from membership in the
Jewish people. We are one,
working for Israel's strong
future throughout the
world; we must be one in the
eyes of Israel's law. The
issue is not one of subtle in-
terpretation of Halakha.
Rather it is a direct slap in
the face to all non-Orthodox
Jews, saying in effect that
our money and our energies
are good enough but we and
our children are not ... As
we are one people in an-
guish and in death so we
must be one people in life."

Responding to Schin-
dler's statement, Sherer
said that the Reform
leader painted "a false

picture about the con-
sequences of this
amendment" by failing to
speak about "the single
key issue at stake: how
can one be converted
from a non-Jew into a

Jew." Sherer said that
the proposed amendment
"does not in the slightest"
disqualify two-thirds of
world Jewry from mem-
bership in the Jewish
Rabbi Richard Hirsch,
executive director of the
World Union for Progres-
sive Judaism (the Reform
movement) said he failed to
understand the point in re-
newed efforts to amend the
Law of Return at a time it
was essential to unite all
the forces of the Jewish
Hirsch reacted in a public
statement to a bill, amend-
ing the Law of Return to de-
fine as Jews only those who
were born to Jewish
mothers or converted ac-
cording to Halakha. If the
bill is approved in further
readings conversions per-
formed by Conservative and
Reform rabbis will be consi-
dered invalid.

The Prophets
Are Translated
Into Russian

— Rabbi Pinches M. Teitz of
Elizabeth has announced
the publication of a new,
modern translation of all
the Prophets into the Rus-
sian language.
The volume is now avail-
able for distribution -
throughout the United
States, especially to Jewish
communities involved in re-
settlement work of Soviet
immigrants, he said.
The editors of the volume,
printed and bound in Israel,
are a group of distinguished
Russian-Hebrew scholars,
themselves recent Russian
immigrants to Israel, Teitz
