IRS Says Rule Revisions
Won't Hurt Jewish Schools

NEW YORK (JTA) — -
The Internal Revenue Serv-
ice (IRS) indicated at a spe-
cial meeting with represen-
tatives of six private school
agencies that it was deter-
mined to avoid any adverse
impact on Jewish day
schools in its revision of
regulations to decide which
private schools are entitled
to tax exempt status, one of
the Jewish representatives
at the meeting said.
The special meeting was
called by the IRS Commis-
sioner, Jerome Kurtz, after
the IRS received many com-
plaints, by mail and at three
days of recent hearings, on
proposed regulation
changes, geared to finding
whether a particular non-
.public school was guilty of
racially discriminatory ad-
mission policies anti not
entitled to tax exemption.
Rabbi Bernard Golden-
berg, chairman of the
executive committee of
Torah Umesorah, the Na-
tional Society for Hebrew
Day Schools, and Dennis
Rapps, executive director of
the National Jewish Com-
mission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA), appeared
for Jewish day schools. The
other organizations repre-
sented at the hearing were
the Council for American
Private Education, the Na-
tional Association of Inde-
pendent Schools, Christian
Schools International and
Lutheran and Seventh Day
Adventist Schools.
The issue dates back to
July 1970 when the IRS
announced guidelines to
deny tax exempt status to
racially discriminator3r
private schools, repor-
tedly aimed at academies
organized by white par-
ents opposed to
attendance by their chil-
dren at integrated public
schools.
The guidelines excluded
private schools in which
student admission policies
had no relation to racial
considerations, referring
specifically to religious
schools.
The exemption of Jewish
and other religious non-
public schools was affirmed
by a 1975 IRS ruling, but
concern of Jewish organ-
izations was aroused by
what they considered am-
biguities in proposed 1978
revenue procedures, as such
IRS regulations are called.
The 1978 proposals, while
specifying that the proposed
revisions were not to apply
to "church-related and
church-operated schools"
cited in the 1975 ruling,
proposed nevertheless that
tax exempt private schools
would have to meet "certain
affirmative record keeping
and publicity requirements
along with other guidelines
for determining whether
schools have recially dis-
criminatory policies as to
students."
The revisions are
aimed at private schools
in areas in which public
schools are being or have
been integrated.
Under the proposed re-

visions, such private schools
would be presumed to be
discriminatory if their
minority enrollment was
not at least 20 percent of the
local school age minority
population, if there had
been a substantial increase
in white student enrollment
which may be related to the
integration of the area's
public schools.
The burden would be on
the school to satisfy the IRS
that it did not discriminate
against minorities.
Jewish organizations,
concerned that Jewish day
schools might be inadver-
tently involved, asked to
testify at hearings arranged
by the IRS for Dec. 4 and
extended two days in re-
sponse to mounting protests
from private schdol groups.
To clarify the issue and
reinforce the tax exemption
for Jewish day schools, two
groups of Jewish organiza-
tions sent to the hearings in
December Martin Cowan,
COLPA vice. president, and
Nathan Z. Dershowitz, di-
rector of the Conimission on
Law, Social Action and
Urban Affairs of the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress.
They testified that few
blacks, Orientals or
members of other
minorities in this country
are Jewish and therefore
very few students at
Jewish -religious schools
-are members of such
minorities.
They also testified that
the undeniable consistent
growth in Jewish day school
student populations results
from the way such schools
are organized, starting usu-
ally with a kindergarten
and first grade and adding
grades annually as pupils
prepare for promotion to the
next grade.
