statement puts it, "as long
as the student is in fact
Jewish, it would be contrary
to Jewish religious princi-
ples to discriminate against
him or her on the basis of
race, skin color or similar
factors."
The two experts will point
out that few blacks, Orien-
tals or members of other
minorities in this country
are Jewish , and therefore
few students at Jewish reli-
gious schools are members
of such minorities. Accord:
ingly, absence of black stu-
dents. from Jewish religious
schools is in no way proof of
racially discriminatory
policies and the presump-
tion of such discrimination
is irrational.
The undeniable growth in
student populations in
Jewish day schools stems
from the way such schools
are structured, starting
usually with akindergarten
and first grade and then
adding grades annually as
the pupils prepare for pro-
motion to the next higher
grade.
of
Establishment
Jewish schools to serve
the needs of the Jewish
community, a constitu-
tional right, will neces-
sarily result in enroll-
ment expansion totally
unrelated to the advan-
tItges or disadvantages in
local public schools.
Dershowitz will stress
that the proposed IRS re-
visions could, by unfairly
burdening Jewish religious
schools through placing on.
them' the costly burden of
proof of non-discrimination,
seriously impinge on the
religious rights of American
Jews.
The Dershowitz state-
ment raises the possibility
that the "suspect" Jewish
schools might be forced to
spend their limited funds on
recruitment of minority
students and faculty whose
presence in such a school
could only dilute the
school's" program and in-
hibit its communal and
religious mission.
He will propose that
the IRS rewrite its defini-
tion of a "reviewable
school" — one susp e ct of
racial discrimination. —
to 'exclude any -religious
school in which the ab-
sence of minority stu-
dents or presenGe in in-
sig#ificant numbers of
minority group children
in the school area belong-
ing to that school's reli-
gious denomination. ,
He will also warn that
application of the proposed
revisions to Jewish reli-
gious schools could produce
serious problems of undue
entanglement of church and
