Black NY Gager Is
Converted to Judaism

By HASKELL COHEN

NEW YORK (JTA) — Au-
lcie Perry, the star of the
Maccabi Tel Aviv basket-
ball team, has completed his
conversion to Judaism and
is on his way back to Israel
to start a new life. The
Black basketball whiz
finalized his conversion by
going through the custom-
ary Brit Mila, and visited a
mikva in New York City
and assumed the name
Elisha Ben Abraham.
Perry is on the way to his
new apartment in the
northern part of Tel Aviv.
His intention is to apply
immediately for Israeli citi-
zenship which, of course,
will include serving in the
Israeli armed forces.
The six-foot, 10-inch bas-
ketball star explained, "I
was too tall for the U.S.
army but in Israel everyone
has to do his part and I'm
happy to become a member
of the Zahal."
Perry found that it was
easier to become a bas-

ketball star in Israel than
converting to Judaism.
He recalls that when the
Maccabi team returned
to Israel last year, after
beating the Russians • in
Belgrade for the Euro-
pean Championship,
175,000 people greeted
him and his teammates at .
Ben-Gurion Airport. Ac-
cording to Perry it wa s
the high point in his life
and possibly had consid-
erable influence in turn-
ing him towards the
Jewish faith.

When he finally . decided
to make his move, his
teammates gave him con-
siderable encouragement,
but the rabbis didn't.
"I understand the rabbis'
position in trying to turn me
down. We Jews are very
proud of our heritage and
tradition and do not take

Yeshiva Dean

NEW YORK — Dr. Sid Z.
Leiman, 36-year-old former
senior scholar in Judaic
studies at Yale, and visiting
scholar in Jewish ethics at
the Kennedy Institute of
Ethics, Georgetown Uni-
versity, has been appointed
dean of Yeshiva Univer-
sity's Bernard Revel
Graduate School and direc-
tor of graduate Jewish edu-
cation.
Dr. Leiman succeeds Dr.
Haym Soloveitchik, who
will resume full time teach-
ing responsibilities after 'a
one year's leave of absence
devoted to research and
writing.

New Arab Friend

NEW YORK — -Former

Texas Governor John Con-
nally helped put together
the deal for Saudi Arabians
Gaith Pharaon and Khaled
Bin Mahfouz to buy the
Main Bank of Houston.
As one of the partners in
the deal, Conally owns 15
percent of the stock.

being a Jew lightly. The
rabbis turned me back do-
zens of times before accept-
ing me," Perry said. -
His firstglIne as a Jew in
Israel, on the Maccabi Five,
came this week when his
team opposed the Washing-
ton Bullets, National Bas-
ketball Association cham-
pions, in a charity game in
the Tel Aviv Sport Arena.

qualified as a Jew, the Mac-
