Zuckerman, president of the
National Jewish Commis-
sion on Law and Public Af-
fairs (COLPA), said.
For more than a year, the
Air Force rejected a request
by Rabbi Kalinsky that he
be permitted to maintain
his beard. Rabbi -Kalinsky,
a 28-year-old Orthodox
rabbi, refused to shave off
his beard on religious
grounds and was placed on
inactive status in January
1978.

president, and David Bu-

tier, a COLPA volunteer at-
torney, Rabbi Kalinsky
sued the Air Force, contend-
ing that forcing him to
shave violated his constitu-
tional right to freedom of
religion. The Air Force, fac-
ing a hearing in federal dis-
trict court in Washington on
the constitutionality issue,
notified Rabbi Kalinsky he
could keep his beard.
Lt. Gen. Andrew Iosue,
deputy Air Force chief of
staff, wrote Rabbi
Kalinsky that he would
be reinstated in the active
reserve with the rank of
First Lieutenant and
given credit for points
toward retirement bene-
fits, in addition to all the
back pay he would have
received had he re-
mained on active status.
Zuckerman noted that in
a separate affidavit, the Air
Force said its grooming re-
quirements would be
changed for other reserve
chaplains, but not for any-
one else, including chap-
lains on duty. Zuckerman

said there was no guarantee
that the ban on beards
would not be reinstated for
reserve chaplains.
He said for these reasons,
Rabbi Kalinsky will oppose
the Air Force's anticipated
effort to have the case dis-
missed in federal court be-
cause of the concessions to
Rabbi Kalinsky, including
his reinstatement in the
active reserve.
Butler said the limita-
tion permitting beards
only to chaplains on re-
serve was "clearly arbit-
rary" and that the Air
Force action affectively
diminished the Air Force
contention that requiring
its personnel to be clean-
shaven was essential to
the effective functioning
of its personnel.
Butler declared he would
, continue to press the case in
federal court in an effort to
assure that any Air Force
personnel wishing to wear a
beard for religious reasons
should be allowed to do so.

Judge Apologizes to Rabbi
for Yarmulke Removal Order

NORFOLK, Va. — Judge
Vernon Hitchings of the
Norfolk Traffic Court
apologized to Rabbi Joseph
Sackett after having come
under protest for ordering
the rabbi to remove his
yarmulke in his courtroom.
Rabbi Sackett was before
the judge to challenge a
traffic ticket. He removed
the yarmulke at the judge's
order. The Anti-Defamation
League criticized the judge
and considered legal action,
but none was taken.
In his apology, both by

Judge Hitchings told
Rabbi Sackett, "I write
this letter to express my
deepest and sincerest
apologies for the affront
committed to you and
your co-religionists."
Rabbi Sackett, who met
with the judge this week,
shook hands with him and
said "As far as–I'm con-
cerned the matter is closed."

Israel Building
New Embassy

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Israel has awarded the con-
tract for its new embassy in
Washington to the Blake
Construction Co. and work
has already started on the
new structure at the corner
of Reno Rd. and Van Ness
St. in the upper northwest
section of Washington.

The new building, which
will embody suggestions of
both Mediterranean and
Middle Eastern architec-
tural design, is scheduled
for completion in 1980.

The present embassy is
located in an old Washing-
ton mansion acquired soon
after Israel came into being
in 1948, and in several out-
lying offices. This has
cr.eated problems of in-
creased expense, lack of se-
curity and inefficiency
which the new _embassy
building is expected to
solve.
