WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Two spokesmen for differ-
ent groups of Jewish organ-
izations have testified be-
fore a House subcommittee
in support of action to as-
sure that religious schools
are protected in their right
to accept only students of
their own religious faith
without risking loss of tax
exempt status.
The spokesmen were
Martin Cowan, secretary of
the National Jewish Com-
mission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA), and
Nathan Z. Dershowitz, di-
rector of the Commission on
Law, Social Action and

sued guidelines reportedly
aimed at "white academies"
organized by parents op-
posed to attendance by their
children at integrated pub-
lic schools.
The exemption of Jewish
and other religious schools
from the guidelines —
which basically required
private schools to prove ab-
sence of racially dis-
criminatory admission
policies — was affirmed by a
1975 revision. It specified
that "a school that selects
students on the basis of
membership in a religious
denomination or unit
thereof will not be deemed
to have a discriminatory
policy if membership in the

But xvhen the IRS pub-
lished late in 1978 new re-
vised proposals, concern
was widely expressed by
non-public school organiza-
tions and religious groups
over apparent ambiguities
in the revised proposals
relative to religious schools.
In response to thousands
of complaints, the IRS held

three days of hearings last
December at which repre-
sentatives testified for
Jewish and Christian
schools.

The 1978 proposed re-
visions were aimed at
private schools or-
ganized in areas in which
public schools are being
or have been integrated.
A private school in such a
school district could,
under the 1978 proposed
revisions, be presumed

Purim Materials

NEW YORK — Purim
holiday materials are
available from the Board of
Jewish Education of
Greater New York.
"The Festival of Purim in
Israel" is a 16mm color film
produced by BJE with Cam-
era Ltd. of Israel. This
sound film shows how Is-
raelis celebrate the holiday.

One of BJE's animated
language films jai easy
Hebrew, "Hara'ashan —
The Gregger," tells the
story of a mysterious
gregger which will not
work — except when the
name Haman is men-
tioned. An accompany-
ing guide includes the
film's full text, a music
sheet for the theme song,'
educational guidelines
and objectives, and a
vocabulary list.

The BJE Holiday Melody

by the IRS to be dis-
criminatory if its minor-
ity enrollment was not at
least 20 percent of the
proportion of the minor-
ity school age population
in the area of such a pub-
lic school, or if there had
been a substantial in-
crease in its white stu-
dent enrollment which
might be related to the
integration of the local
public school.

Cowan and Dershowitz
testified at the IRS hearings

that the absence of black,
Hispanic and other minor-
ity group children from
Jewish religious schools
simply reflected the fact
that very few such minority
children in the U.S. are
Jewish.

Popularity Drop

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
The popularity of Prime
Minister Menahem Begin,
Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman and Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan
slipped heavily between Oc-
tober and December, ac-
cording to Israel's Public
Opinion Research Institute.
Begin's popularit y
plummeted to the lowest
point since he was elected in
May, 1977 when the De-
cember poll showed that
only 48.9 percent were
satisfied with his perform-
ance. This compared to 68.3
percent in October.
Weizman's popularity
dropped from 73 percent to
67.3 percent and Dayan's
dropped from 59.8 to 54.5.

The increase of the
wicked is sin.
